First Inter-House Competition a Success for new SLT

Our annual Inter-House Netball Tournament was a huge success this week, with excellent participation from each of the four Houses – and a new incentive from our new Student Leadership Team!

Speaking afterwards, Guardian Lillie explained why they had wanted to provide sweets and certificates for the winners, as well as trophies for the Players of the Tournament for each House, “We thought it was important that the girls were rewarded and recognised individually for the hard work and effort they put into supporting their House. We felt that it would give the girls a sense of achievement and encourage them to continue with their positive attitude towards Inter-House events.”

And those incentives were incredibly well sought after – the matches were all fast and furious, and remarkably close.  Years 7 to 9 played first, with Lenox winning.  Players of the Matches for Years 7 to 9 were as follows, and were voted for by the opposition in each match:

Clifton – Mya G / Aoife / Annika

Darnley – Rebecca H / Rebecca H / Niu-Niu

Lenox – Dami / Teshanne / Teshanne

Richmond – Zara C / Eimear / Eimear

Years 10 to 13 followed, with even more closely fought matches.  Richmond took the narrow win, with the Players of the Match being named by the opposition as:

Clifton – Zara O / Lilly G / Britta

Darnley – Cara / Cara/ Cara

Lenox – Langa / Harriet/ Harriet

Richmond – Teloni / Teloni / Toke

Speaking after the tournament, Head of PE Mrs Hooper commented, “The girls played great matches today, probably the closest Inter-House Netball Tournament I have witnessed in 10 years! In the Year 10 to 13 games, three were draws!  I want to thank the new Student Leadership Team; they had an excellent first Inter-House competition, with some great new and exciting ideas, putting their stamp on their positions straight away.”

Without further ado, the overall results were as follows:

1st Richmond

2nd Darnley

3rd Lenox

4th Clifton

Congratulations, Richmond House!
