High 5 Netball
On Monday 16th October the girls Netball team took part in a High 5 tournament at Shrewsbury High School. Two teams played, the older girls got as far as the semi-finals losing by just 1 goal. Both teams played brilliantly considering they have only been to 3 practises and some have never played before.
So a big well done to all the girls that took part.
