PEDSSA Cross-Country at Ferndown Upper School
In cold and extremely wet conditions we made the short distance to Ferndown Upper for the final competition of the PEDSSA season. We had top 10 finishes for Todd and Kate which was brilliant to see. Connor, Reece and Finn all finished in the top 20 and all pupils worked fantastically well to complete the soggy course. Finally it was excellent seeing all the Year 6 pupils taking part in their first race and hope all pupils are inspired to keep running in the future.

Year 7 Girls Indoor Football at Canford
Our Year 7 Girls went to Canford for the PEDSSA Indoor Football Competition and produced some fantastic results through the day. We beat Lytchett 4-0 in our first match and followed this up with a 3-1 victory against St Edwards. The spirits were high but we fell short to the eventual winners Broadstone. We also lost narrowly to Allenbourn but managed to beat St Michaels to enable us to finish in 3rd place overall. This was a brilliant performance and the girls represented the school with a fantastic attitude.

Year 6 Boys v Lytchett Mattravers
In the next stage of the PEDSSA Cup we visited Lytchett Mattravers on a cold Tuesday evening. Our hosts took the lead scoring direct from a corner and offered some threat with their pacey forwards. We somehow managed to kick into gear and the lads produced some slick fast flowing attacking and we scored five goals in quick succession. Aston, Reece and Joseph were our goalscorers and effectively put the game to bed at half time. We actually missed a few late chances but ran out 5-2 winners. The boys all played fantastically well and have had a brilliant start to their football season and I have every doubt that they will continue to go from strength to strength after Christmas where I will still follow their progress.
