Today, Muscliff entered their first ever Handball team into an event held at Winton Primary. Without a handball club at school, children in Y6 decided in the autumn term to teach themselves how to play at play and lunch times! There were lots of very competitive matches and Muscliff narrowly lost to the eventual winners 6-5 in the group stages. Teachers from other schools commended Muscliff on their passing and teamwork. In a difficult decision, it was captain Myah who earned player of the tournament for her positive energy and fair play. Well done team!

The Year 6 athletics team competed this week against 14 other schools and they were INCREDIBLE! Out of the four events, Miss Fisher was most impressed by the 600m race where all Muscliff children gave it everything, some even having enough left for a sprint finish. Full results are still to come in. Medal for her passion and teamwork awarded to Sophia. School value: Aspiration.

Miss Patrick was extremely proud of the Year 4 and 5 children who attended a full day of sporting events at The Grange School in Christchurch. The children showed fantastic determination whilst enjoying a range of activities, many of which they had never done before. They started the day learning the sport of curling and completing a crazy-golf course before using lots of energy taking part in hurdles and speed bounce. In the afternoon, children participated in a table cricket competition where they showed excellent team work both with their peers and children from other schools.

A match report by Mrs Flynn and Miss Cole:
In November, the girls' football team were able to take part in their first football tournament at the Littledown Centre. They were placed in a group against Park School, Corpus Christi and St Micahel's. Despite initial nerves, the girls won their first game against Park with an easy goal which settled them and gave them confidence to then go on to beat Corpus Christi 8-0 and secure a last-minute win against St Michael's as well. This made them the winners of their group and placed them in the top four schools out of 17 for the final group games. Being in the top 4 put us up against the strongest sides in the area: St Walburga's, St Katherine's and St Peter's. The girls really stepped up their game and held their own against St Katherine's, with excellent defensive playing securing a 0-0 draw. They moved onto the next game with St Walburga's with the same great attitude and fighting spirit. Unfortunately, St Walburga's gained the upper hand in the second half and Muscliff conceded the first defeat of the day. The last game, against St Peter's, was very well matched and the girls battled back from being 1-0 down with a great goal just before the final whistle ensuring a 1-1 draw. As you can imagine, the crowd went wild and the girls finished their afternoon ecstatic. The girls finished 3rd overall out of 17 teams, the Mighty Muscliff strike again! Miss Cole and Mrs Flynn would like to say a massive well done to all the girls who took part, they should be incredibly proud of themselves. We would also like to say thank you to all the parents who helped with transport and cheered the girls on! Looking forward to the next one!
