St. John's and The Grange play rounders.

Neighbouring Primary Schools, The Grange and St. John’s Catholic Primary came together on Friday 13th May 2016 to enjoy an afternoon of rounders organised by Year 10 Blessed George Napier Sport Leaders.

Almost sixty Year 5/6 children and six teams took part in the event with the three St. John’s teams playing against the three respective The Grange teams on a round robin basis.  Great teamwork and effort was displayed by all teams with The Grange team 1 coming first by winning all their games, closely followed by St. John’s team 1 who took runners-up spot.

Congratulations to all players, Sport leaders and teachers and teaching assistants involved who all contributed to a fun and enjoyable afternoon.  .  It is hoped both The Grange and St. John’s will continue to arrange friendly inter-School matches in a variety of sports during the year.

Thank you for a great afternoon of rounders.  All players have had lots of fun and have learnt the rules of rounders through playing games and support and guidance offered by the BGN leaders.  It is pleasing in seeing both The Grange and St. John’s coming together to take part in this event and I hope we can get together on more occasions during the Summer term and throughout the Year.”            Teaching assistant (The Grange)
