We have had a great but a very wet day today here in Jersey! After a slightly later breakfast the pupils gathered and then went into St Helier for a chance to have a look around the town and do a spot of shopping… I have been assured that the pupils got a few bargains! In the afternoon the girls and boys went off to their respective locations for their respective sports, the girls taking part in the netball and the boys in the rugby. Some of our pupils went on a Jersey tour as well and saw some of the sights and had a great time with hot chocolate on a beach tour.

Rugby at St Michael’s school (Boys)

The boys made it to the semi finals of the rugby plate competition, losing out narrowly 4-3. The boys played some lovely rugby during the afternoon, even though it was absolutely chucking it down all afternoon!

Netball at Les Ormes Netball Centre (Girls)

The girls got put into a very tough group in the netball tournament, they won a few matches and played some lovely netball, with great intensity in all their matches. We lost a very close game to the eventual winners which meant we couldn’t qualify for the final.

It’s the disco tonight and the pupils are very excited to show off their dance skills and lots of prep was put into the outfit choices! Overall, a good day and lots of fun was had.


We treated all of the pupils to Dominos pizza for being so fantastic all week! (That’s the picture where it looks like we are in a cafe with the blue boxes on the tables)
