Year 4 had a super residential this week to Carey Camp. They took part in a wide variety of activities, including shelter building, ropes courses, archery, orienteering and tunnelling. They also learned how to sleep and eat outside! Many thanks to the staff for their positivity and dedication throughout the trip and to all of our pupils for their adaptability, optimism, inter-dependence and courage.

 

Netball tournament

Yesterday saw the High Five netball squad A.K.A. ‘Team Tagg’ face their first ever inter-school netball tournament at Bournemouth School for Girls. Over twenty local schools took part in the exciting event on a beautiful, if somewhat chilly, afternoon.

After only a few practice sessions, the committed team of Year Six girls secured their first victory in their opening match! As the afternoon unfolded the team demonstrated their strength of character: grit whilst facing Arctic like temperatures; adaptability when continuously changing pitches and rotating team positions; optimism as they constantly remained positive, even in the face of Olympian like opposition.

The whole squad were a credit to QPA and it was wonderful to watch the quality of their game progress throughout the afternoon. The next match for the team is on Thursday 8th February. If there are any pupils wishing to join the team then please see either Miss Tagg or Mrs Wallis.
