Netball match v Stockport Grammar – Sat 2 Oct
A beautiful sunny morning was ordered for the netball
game on Saturday 2nd October. Both teams played
exceptionally well and although we lost both games; the
14 girls who played should be commended for their
efforts. Mrs Dunne was really proud of their attitude
towards fair-play.

Netball match v Alderley Edge – Tues 5 Oct
On Tuesday after school, 13 girls played an admirable
game of netball. The 1st team narrowly lost but the 2nd
team were victorious and beat the rivals 3 goals to 1. All
of the girls played exceptionally well.
