Our netball girls competed in an Under 11s Girl's Diocesan Championship at Mylnhurst on Friday, and played their hearts out.
The girls played 9 tough matches, and managed to get through to the Shield Finals, coming runners up! The girls all received medals and a trophy which we will proudly put on display in our special awards cabinet.
A special award was also given to Molly for being 'most improved player', and she was given her very own netball.
We are really proud of the team - Renee, Hannah, Yayra, Molly, Abi, Mia, Helena, Mary, Anna and Yvonne. They all showed tremendous team spirit, demonstrated fantastic netball skills and their positive attitude and perseverance throughout the afternoon was a joy to watch.
Thank you to all the parents who came to support our girls. Well done St Marie's!
Over 35 St Marie’s girls from Y3 and Y4 have been attending the FA and SSE sponsored programme, designed to introduce girls to the fundamental skills of football. The programme is run by Sheffield FC Ladies' General Manager Helen Mitchell and former player Lisa Giampalma (Notre Dame PE teacher). The coaching sessions have been a huge success and underline the importance of introducing girls to football at an early age.On Wednesday the girls met Notts County and England player Amy Turner. The girls got to ask Amy questions and to see the Women's FA Cup sponsored by SSE. Amy was a fantastic role model and inspiration to all the girls. A big thank you to SSE, Sheffield FC and Amy for making dreams comes true. Check out the photos below in the gallery.
