End of an amazing netball season!

ACADTEAM 003

The netball season 2013-2014 is now over. We had years 7,8,9 and 10 teams playing in the league and in total they played 38 fixtures from September to February.

This year has been really challenging, with all of our teams playing in the top division. They played against schools that had club and county players. Although it was a difficult season, all teams have successfully stayed in the top division for next season. This is a fantastic achievement for all of our netball players.

The season was extremely busy and I would like to thank all the students who took part and attended training, this is a fantastic achievement – well done!!!

Individual rewards will be given out in assembly soon, including sports colours and special badges. Keep checking the VLE for info!!

International Women’s Day – 8th March 2014

When: 8 March
Where: Everywhere
What:   International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women’s Day is a national holiday.
Why:   Suffragettes campaigned for women’s right to vote. The word ‘Suffragette’ is derived from the word “suffrage” meaning the right to vote. International Women’s Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women’s success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed.
