Well Done Everyone and A Big Thank you to Mr Freeman, Mr O'Reiley and all the Sports Leaders who did a great job!
The whole school enjoyed an amazing afternoon, starting with an assembly from Paralympic Gold Medal Archer, Danielle Brown MBE. She was very inspirational and spoke to the children about her journey to the Paralympics and how it hadn't been easy but she learnt to develop a positive attitude and never gave up.
The children then join Sportivator in a sponsored exercise challenge to complete spotty dogs, press ups, star jumps and leg climbers! Very tiring but the whole school stayed to support each other which was amazing.
With the Year 5's out on Science Day, it was down to the Year 6's with some help from a few Year 4's to represent the school in the inter-schools swimming gala. They all put in maximum effort and finished in a very impressive 2nd place.
Three teams of gymnasts went to perform both on the floor and the vault in the individual and team competitions. They had all worked hard to learn their floor routines and some of the younger ones were faced with a higher vault than they had been use to. Well done to all the gymnasts - Saskia, Sophia, Paige, Marnie, Saoirse, Tessa, Sofia, Holly, Caidy, Ben, Sammy, Ellie and Maisie.
After a fantastic performance Saskia, Sophia, Paige and Marnie won the Team Floor and Vault Event, Sophia came 1st in the Elite Floor & Vault, Saskia came 3rd in the Elite Floor & Vault, Sofia came 2nd in the Intermediate Floor & Vault and Ben came 5th in the Boys Floor & Vault. Congratulations - very proud!
After a disappointing start losing to Whittington (in our new, very smart kits!)The team went from strength to strength beating Weston Rhyn and Woodside, which meant they were in a play off for 3rd place against Morda and they definitely didn't disappoint with a very impressive win. Final results Whittington 1st, The Meadows 2nd, Our Lady's 3rd and Morda 4th.
Congratulations to our amazing athletics team who represented the school in the area athletics competition at Queensway. They were so competitive with some excellent performances and team work. The team came 3rd overall in the Medium Schools Competition.
The Rounders team had a lovely afternoon in the sun. They lost one game and won two, managing to score 11 rounders in the first round!
The children thoroughly enjoyed a very fast and furious afternoon of Dodgeball! There was some excellent play especially by Sam and Sophia when they ended up on their own!
A big well done to the Boys Football Team, they won 2 games, but were very unlucky to lose to Woodside.
Congratulation to Tessa, Saskia, Jac and George who qualified to represent Oswestry Area in the North Shropshire Cross Country Competition at Lakelands School
Results: Jac 11th, George 13th, Tessa 10th & Saskia 14th!!
A big well done to the Netball Team who represented the school at the tournament, they played really well with some excellent team work. But unfortunately narrowly missed getting through to the semi- finals.
A team of Year 5&6 children competed in the indoor athletics competition, they worked so hard in both the individual and team events. A huge well done to all of you especially, those who stepped in to replace due to illness.
A big well done to Harvey, Jacob, Ben, Sophia, Holly and Tessa who represented the school at the Inter-School Hockey Festival
We took a team of Year 5&6 children to brave the cold weather at the Rugby Club on Thursday. The team worked really well with some excellent coaching from Sam Hodgson. After losing the first two games the team drew against the Meadows and then beat Morda. Well done to everyone and a big thanks to Sam Hodgson.
A HUGE WELL DONE TO ALL THOSE WHO ATTENDED THE CROSS COUNTRY EVENTS AT THE MARCHES SCHOOL.

FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT AT OSWESTRY SCHOOL 29.9.2016
The team all worked really hard to win both their games in the first round against Cockshutt and Whittington taking them into the semi-final against Bellan House. The team continued to play well but suffered a last minute unlucky goal from Bellan. Well done everyone a very good effort from all involved and thank you to Mr Bell for coming to support us.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR SCHOOL NETBALL TEAM FOR THEIR AMAZING WIN AT THE OSWESTRY SCHOOL NETBALL TOURNAMENT!
The team got off to a slow start losing against St Mary's, but soon picked up the pace with wins against Bellan House and Whittington taking them into the final to face St Mary's again.
It was a very exciting match with end to end goals until the final whistle blew with Our Lady's winning 6-5.
A brilliant start to the new school year, well done all!
