On Thursday 24th April our Year 3 and 4 Football team took part in a Football tournament. They played 3 games- they drew against Hulland 1:1, won the game against Ashbourne Primary School 9:0 and won the final game against Longmarston 3:1. A fabulous team effort which saw them winning the ‘Team Spirit ball’ presented to them by Aztecs Football Club.
Our School Cross Country Team had a top performance last night. Daniel Margiotta took first in the Year 1 and 2 Cross Country race, with Antoni Lasek taking 4th place and Nancy Archer being first St Oswald’s girl, well done. It was a strong performance from all the Year 1 and 2 St Oswald’s children.
The second race started at 4.15pm and the Year 3 and 4 children after cheering on the previous race were all excited. They had to run a little further- Noah Wood was in the lead all the way, but was pipped to the post and took second place after a fall. Franek and Josie came in next, all did exceptionally well. The stamina and resilience the children showed was tremendous! The parents cheer ed the children and the positive attitude shone through!
2019 brings another strong performance for our fabulous runners in the Cross Country race. All who took part ran their socks off an put in 100% effort. Noah came first boy in the year 5/6 race enabling him to represent QEG’s at the district Cross Country and Daniel came first in the year 3/4 race with Antoni and Lenny close at his heals!
