• Sports Events: Unfortunately, due to other commitments the Priory School had to postpone the football tournament that was planned for Monday. However, our year 3/4 team played Dover Park at home in the quarter finals yesterday and won 3-2.That means that they are through to the semi-finals which will have to be played next week. Man of the Match was Jimmy Mumford who supported all of the team to do their best. Mark Hill organised a fantastic cluster cross country event this week. Wootton, Queensgate, Gurnard and Cowes all joined us. We came a fantastic joint second with Queensgate winning the event overall. A special mention has to go to Millie Williams who was the first girl to cross the finishing line and came 6th overall. Thank you to all the children and staff involved who made both events so enjoyable. Next week we have a high 5 netball tournament and the Island final of the basketball to look forward to.
• Sainsbury’s Active Kids: Another thanks to Mr Hill who has won us a prize from Active Kids by writing a blog about our year 3/4 Tag Rugby Tournament. We have won 4 basketballs signed by the Para Olympic Basketball team and a visit from a sports person linked to the scheme – fingers crossed it will be David Beckham!
