Table Tennis

All the fixtures for the Yr3 table tennis league have been completed.  The results are published on the following website:

I would like to congratulate all players for the fantastic improvements they have made in the sport.  Their enthusiasm for the club has been a pleasure to observe. 

Year 3 have no more fixtures to complete so they do not need to come to the afterschool club anymore.

The Yr4, Yr5, and yr6 table tennis leagues are nearing completion. Therefore, it is imperative that they attend the final table tennis after school club this Friday after school. Failure to attend will mean that your child will lose the remaining fixtures.
