It was another great week for all our girls sporting fixtures across the last 7 days and despite the ever changing weather, we had another busy week.
Last Thursday Miss Harrison brought a team of U14 and U16 runners to Harrow for the ESAA Cross Country Cup Round. The girls’ performances were strong and congratulation to all.
Saturday was a day of Lacrosse practise on our pitches for the U13 & U14 with team trials for the U12 teams. Sadly torrential rain on Saturday night resulted in a late cancellation for Sunday’s U15s & U18s County Tournament at North London Collegiate School. We are waiting to hear about a new date for this tournament.
We were also busy on the water with the rowing Senior squad raced at the Pairs Head of the River, racing from Chiswick to Hammersmith. This is the same stretch of river as the Schools' Head in March, so provided invaluable experience. Hannah and Emma came 3rd overall, and LEH had 5 crews in the top 20 which bodes well for the depth of strength in the squad.
Monday we welcomed Guildford High School for our U13 Netball teams. It was our first meet for all our teams and while Guildford proved the stronger side, our girls came away with lots of pointers to work on for the next fixture. Tuesday we travelled to Guildford with our U16 & U18 teams to play against another strong GHS teams. Our girls put up a good fight but all credit goes to Guildford who were the better team on the day.
Wednesday was Wellbeing day for the all staff and pupils. It was a seamlessly run day with all the PE staff involved in helping out in lots of different sport including kingball, tag rugby, box fit, swimming, Bushy Park runs, cardio tennis, trampoling, AirTrack, dance, football, karate, yoga, and crazy golf. It was a day for fun, relaxation and trying something new.
We have had a lot of girls going over on their ankles and sustaining injuries in Netball. If your daughter has committed to playing Netball, we require them to wear appropriate netball trainers. This is to avoid injuries to ankles, knees and hips. Please have a look at the netball trainers that are recommended on the Netball UK and SportsShoes.com websites.
We welcome all parents to come and support their child at our fixtures. However we must remind you that we have a strictly no dogs policy as not everyone is comfortable around dogs. We will also be informing the opposing teams on this policy.
