Sporting Round Up

We have had a busy few weeks with sporting events:

Latchmere Girls’ Football Team

On Tuesday 1st November, the Latchmere Girls’ Football Team played in a tournament against five other schools. The girls played exceptionally well, winning four games and losing just one. Joud Al-Azzawi was named as player of the tournament and scored a lot of goals for our school. As a result of this excellent display, the girls qualified for the Kingston Borough Finals on 8th December. The winning school will then go on to represent Kingston at The London Youth Games! Well done, girls!

Kingston Borough Sports Awards

On Monday evening, pupils from last year’s Year 6 Girls’ Football Team went to the Council Chamber at the Guildhall in Kingston to receive a “highly commended” award under the category of Sports Team of the Year. This was following their success at the 2016 London Youth Games. There were eight awards in total and a further award for all London Youth Games Teams so the girls were invited up twice and given medals. Sophie Bray, Rio 2016 Olympic Gold medallist as a member of the women’s hockey team, was present as well as the Mayor, Councillor Geoff Austin.
