U8-U11 Bucks XC at Lowndes Park - Saturday 16 November
Every child who represented Gateway on Saturday did so with great determination and this led to some excellent results. The runners overcame the tricky hill at the beginning of the course at Lowndes Park to complete their races and we had a large number of podium finishes both in the individual and team events.
U9 and U11 Rugby v Gayhurst - Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 November
All of the Y4 and Y6 boys made the journey to Gayhurst this week for rugby matches. The younger children were involved in a round-robin with Thorpe House in attendance and there was some excellent rugby played by all of the teams. The games threw up lots of areas to work on which the teachers have noted and we look forward to helping the children use this excellent experience to continue their development.
The Y6 boys had a gruelling afternoon against strong Gayhurst teams with everyone playing some form of contact rugby. The commitment and resilience shown by the Gateway boys when results were not going their way was tremendous and left the staff feeling immensely proud. We should take pride and heart in the success of scoring some well worked tries and playing some excellent rugby against very good opposition.
