The P.E Department arranged for 30 Year 8, 9, 10 and 11 students to visit The Copper Box Arena for the recent Vitality Netball International Series – England Roses vs Uganda She Cranes netball match. For the majority of the students it was their first experience of a live netball match and they were all impressed with the size and magnitude of the event.
All students thoroughly enjoyed their experience from travelling to the game via the busy underground, to enjoying the pre-match atmosphere. The game was a high scoring one where England Roses ended the first half with an impressive lead of 39-22. Helen Housby (GA) and Rachel Dunn (GS) continued to work hard in the goal third to secure a win of 65-53 enabling them to go into the third round with 2 wins under their belt.
Students gained the opportunity to witness professional players work cohesively and develop their attitudes towards good sportsmanship, fair play and teamwork.
The PE department would like to say well done to all the students involved and a thank you to the finance department for assisting with the purchase of the tickets.
