Herdie Escapes!

Our small but determined orienteering team put in a brave effort to retain the Herdie trophy - but were outnumbered this time.  Ed, Harvey Patrick and Isaac all managed some good runs - with Ed achieving a second place overall on one of the courses. The team show a great deal of potential and have every chance of bringing Herdie home from a future event. Well done the four of you...a brilliant effort!

Football Champions!

The Burlington Trophy Cabinet has a new addition!  Congratulations to the A team players who played 6 matches in the Haverthwaite Small Schools' Tournament today.  They won 4 and drew 2 of their matches, only conceding 3 goals in the whole tournament, whilst scoring an impressive 12!
Bryn, Lauren and Jacob were fearless in defence. Ross, Ed, Jack and Harvey attacked with force and communicated well - each hitting the back of the net throughout the tournament.  
Team Captain, Lauren kept up with the boys and wasn't afraid to go in for some successful tackles, managing to clear the ball away on numerous occasions.   As always, team spirit and sportsmanship was fabulous - a credit to school and parents alike.  Well done!

Orienteering training at community centre

Years 3-6 enjoyed their orienteering training at Kirkby Community Centre on Monday afternoon. Lecky and Selwyn prepared a variety of carefully graded courses to develop the children's confidence and understanding.  Their electronic dibbers and computer software provides instant feedback on accuracy and speed, ensuring each child can make progress.  Click here for results

The first Herdie competition takes place next Monday at Croftlands Junior
School, Ulverston. Whilst, it will be a difficult task to retain Herdie for the 5th consecutive time, after the transition of last year's Year 6 stars; we do have a rapidly developing team with great potential. So good luck everyone...enjoy...try your good sportsmen, and the rest will fall into place.

Check back for a full report next week.
