Girls’ Football Team

On Wednesday, a team of 8 girls from Year 5 and 6 – went with Mrs Stoneham and Mrs Slattery to the St Dunstan’s Lewisham Girls Football Tournament which was played at the Jubilee Ground in Catford.  The weather was awful but the girls weren’t put off at all and played really well together, gaining more confidence with each game they played. It was a real team effort with all the girls working hard and supporting each other.  They also had great support from their families and friends so thank you to all those who came and helped cheer them on, and thank you to Mrs Stoneham and Mrs Slattery for accompanying them.
