Our Sporting Values are:



Sheldwich Silverware.

I was so excited to get back to competitive sports action this week and what a wonderful competition to start with. Two teams from Year 6 attended the District Handball tournament at Canterbury Academy on Tuesday and the excitement was palpable. 14 school teams were in attendance and the teams were split into two groups of 7. Our teams were in different groups and we faced some strong opposition. Sheldwich 2 made a tentative start but their confidence grew and the teamwork got better and better. There were some outstanding contributions from Ethan S and Vashti. The team finished the group stages in 6th position. Sheldwich 1 made a blistering start, winning the first game 5-1 and their outstanding form continued throughout the tournament. They displayed exceptional talent and wonderful camaraderie and won all of their group games, topping the group and proceeding to the final! In the final, we faced the winning team from Group 2, Canterbury Primary School and as expected it was a very close fought encounter. We went a goal down early on but showed great resilience to fight back and drew level at 2-2. Into extra time we went, narrowly loosing eventually 3-2. However, the children thoroughly deserved their silver medals and for Sheldwich to return with some silverware in the first competition brought a big smile to my face.
