U9-U11 ISA London North Cross Country - Tuesday 3 March
Fourteen children from three year groups were selected for the ISA London North Cross Country in Bedford. It is always inspiring to see the Gateway children run because of the sheer effort that they put in and Tuesday was no different. To qualify for the National Finals, the children had to finish in the top ten runners and with nearly 100 participants in each race this was a tough ask. However, we finished the day with 10 qualifiers and every single Gateway runner was in the top 35. Special congratulations should also go to Zachary C and Katie A who were crowned ISA London North Champions by winning their respective races. The National Finals will be at Worksop College later this month.
U11 Hockey Tournament at Weston Green School - Tuesday 3 March
On Tuesday, some of the year 6 hockey team were out of school all day playing in a tournament against other Bellevue schools. The girls played some fantastic hockey, and it was lovely to meet pupils and staff from other Bellevue schools. The girls played matches all morning, to decide their place in the afternoon. They ended up battling it out for 5th or 6th place in the afternoon, and the game ended on a draw! We then went to penalty shuffles against this other school, which made for a very exciting watch. Unfortunately, we missed out on these by one goal meaning we came 6th. The girls came away with a medal, and big smiles on their faces after a fantastic day.
U11 Netball Tournament at York House - Wednesday 4 March
On Wednesday afternoon some of the year 6 girls faced the elements and went over to York House school to compete in a tournament. There were lots of tough opponents there, so we knew we would have to work hard all afternoon! The rain was torrential and the courts were surrounded by mud, but that didn't stop them. One team came 2nd in their competition, whilst the other team came 5th. We were really proud of the effort and attitude of all of the girls, particularly in such poor weather conditions.
