A huge congratulations for all of our children who represented St Martins at the Canaccord Junior Schools Tag Festival this morning.
We had two Year 3 and 4 teams who played 3 games each in the preliminary rounds. One team went through to the cup competition however they were unfortunately knocked out in the quarter finals. Our second Year 3 and 4 team made it through to the final of the Plate competition. Unluckily, they were beaten in the last few seconds by one try!
Our Year 5 and 6 teams both played extremely well in the preliminary rounds. One team went through to the cup competition after winning all their earlier games, although lost in the quarter finals. Our second Year 5 and 6 team bought a trophy back to St Martins. After some very tough and tense games, they went on to become winners of the plate competition.
A special mention too for our Year 6 boys who took part in a round robin of contact Rugby and won both of their games.
Please could all children involved in the festival meet us at Footes lane by the Garrenne stand by 8.45am tomorrow morning. According to the programme, Years 3 & 4 should be finished by 12.20 and Years 5 & 6 should be finished by 13.10.
Children will be given a t-shirt to wear for the day. Please also bring warm clothing as it may get chilly while we are waiting for our games. Snacks and drinks are also recommended.

Mrs Le Prevost, Mr Eulenkamp and Mrs Boscher
In order for our school to enter two teams in the Year 3/4 age group and two teams in the Year 5/6 age group in the annual Tag Festival in March, we are in need of more girls to attend Tag Rugby club. We must have at least one girl playing in each game and therefore need at least 2 or 3 on each team. At the moment we are very short on girls, mainly in Year 3/4.
If your daughter would like to come along, Friday lunchtime for Year 3/4 and after school for Year 5/6, please speak to Mrs Le Prevost.
