Sporting Success 2019
Our sporting achievements!
Oldham Schools 'Gotta Dance' Competition - July 2019
This year our after school dance club have competed in and won the Oldham Schools 'Gotta Dance' Competition. This then meant they qualified for a place in the North West Finals. They came 4th and narrowly missed a place in the national finals as only the top 3 placed dances qualified. Under a new dance teacher and choreographer they then learned a brand new routine in only a few weeks and performed it at the Oldham Schools 'Celebration of Dance' event last Friday. On Wednesday evening they were invited to perform both routines at the Oldham 'Dance Splash' event at the Oldham Coliseum Theatre and were the only Primary School invited to dance alongside Dance Schools and Companies with dancers aged 8-18. We are incredibly proud of their achievements this year, well done!
Netball Report April - May 2019
Netball match V Denshaw Tuesday 30th April
Well done to both St Mary's Netball teams who displayed a brilliant performance against Denshaw winning both matches 7-2 and 6-3. All pupils worked extremely hard and managed to produce a confident performance with some excellent episodes of play.
Netball match V Knowsley Wednesday 1st May
All pupils who played in these matches should be so proud of their performance and sportsmanship. Both teams came up against two very strong and experienced teams who firstly were two years older than some of our team and secondly they play for Oldham Netball Club. Both teams lost unfortunately, however they did manage to score a number of times and put up a great fight. They were not phased or put off and carried on working hard in true St Mary's fashion. These games were great experience for the pupils and will stand them in good stead for future matches and years!
Next match Wednesday 15th May V Delph @ home.
Many thanks to all parents who helped transport the children - it is very much appreciated and without this we would not be able to facilitate these matches.
