The Year 6 basketball team attended the regional Hoops for Health tournament at Sport Central on Friday and did a fabulous job representing the school once again.  They competed against teams from Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland, North and South Tyneside in a competition that lasted the whole day.  The team won all 5 of their group games to qualify for the knock out stages, where they came up against a strong team from Harton school.  They managed to win that game 4 – 2 and move on to the semi-finals against Gosforth Central.  Sadly they were defeated 2- 0 in a fiercely contested  game, but can hold their heads up high and be proud of the effort and sportsmanship they showed during the course of the day.  Well done to the whole team!
