Sport Fixtures Week Commencing Monday 4th November

Tuesday 5th November

A great rugby fixture with King Edward's tonight, with two teams both learning their way in the game. And what a debut from Emmanuel for Notre Dame - massive tackles from the off and really powerful running, twice going almost the full length of the pitch and worth two tries. The Irish contingent of Mowbray & Mowbray, Siggs and Fitzpatrick were very much to the fore again and some great moments from the rest of the team too. Roll on the rematch in a couple of weeks hopefully - light permitting! Thanks to Miss Tazzyman as always for sorting the kit and information so the match could take place.

Cross Country News

On Monday 14th October, Mrs Kay took the Y7/8 boys and the Y9/10 girls to the first round of the National Cross Country Cup. The top three teams got through to the next round, with both of the Notre Dame teams qualifying. The girls won the event with our first four finishers coming 1st (Annie), 2nd (Rebecca), 3rd (Polly) and 4th (Isabel).  The boys came 2nd, with Will coming 2nd individually.

You can see some picture of the day below.  The first picture shows three pairs of siblings. This must be Notre Dame history!!  What talented families!

Y7 Rugby, Tuesday 15th October

Great effort by our Y7 rugby team (with a distinctly Irish vibe) against much more experienced sides. They got better and better through the five 10 minute games against Tapton (twice), Westfield, Meadowhead and Wales. Big shifts from the twins and Jake and a great finish for the first try by Ciaran.

Rugby, Tuesday 22nd October

A scratch side of 9 Notre Dame students took on 15 from Silverdale and made a great account of themselves. Louis G and Will S were immense with huge tackle counts throughout.  There were great shifts from Jem C and Andrew D, with everybody putting their bodies on the line.
