On Thursday 28th of September 2017 Year 6 from St Teresa’s went to the Harrow rugby field to take part in a tag rugby match. Before arriving the children were split into blue and yellow teams. As soon as the children got there Arron led warm-ups to get the teams ready for their matches. The teams had a quick talk and started their first match.
Both teams were against West Lodge and yellows and blues started very well. In the first 5 minutes Jogaile had scored a try. As soon as Jogaile had finished scoring West Lodge had a quick come back and scored. For the blue team Ryan had scored. At the end of both matches it was 5-3 to St Teresa’s!
Later, they played against Grimsdyke. William was amazing, scoring the first try for the yellows and for the blues it was Jasmine. Makeda and both Nialls were also fantastic and scored. Both teams did incredibly well and the score for the yellows was 6-2 to St Teresa’s and for the blues it was 4-1. They had a short break and practiced drills.
When the break was over, both teams were against St Joseph's who were difficult teams for them to play. For the blues, Elizabeth was great and scored 2 tries and for the yellows, Rohan was incredible by also scoring 2 tries. Louis Stent was also fantastic, scoring 2 tries. The result was yellows 5-3 and blues 5-5.
The children’s final match was against St Bernadette’s, another very difficult team. Vanessa and Alex had scored a try for the blues while Daisy scored a try for the yellows. At the last minute Raine and Alfie scored for both teams.
When all the matches had finished the teams assembled but there was no winner because Harrow Ruby had arranged a friendly rugby match. The children had left with their heads held high.

The first activity for the nursery sports day was the jumping over ropes activity. The three teams were surprisingly good but there were no winners for the first three activities. The second activity was a musical instrument race which was excellent and the nursery students actually did even better than the first activity. The third activity was the egg and spoon race which Ava did fantasically well at and she was almost the only nursery student who got to the finish without fail. The final and the most anticipated event was the welly-boot throw, which was all of the kids and adults favourite event. All the children did very well and there were a lot of WINNERS!
On Thursday 25th May 12 pupils from Years 3 and 4 went to Tir Chonaill Gaels to compete in the Year 3-4 London Gaelic Football Blitz.

The team saved their best performance of the day for the final, winning a very tough game by 7 points to 4. A special mention goes to CJ and Lilly who were recognised by the referees as standout players on the day. The School are extremely proud of all the children who attended the competition!
