District Netball Tournament

This is an annual event and is always very well attended by a large number of the local area primary schools.

The team from Elsea Park had been training hard prior to the event and they were all looking forward to playing more competitive matches.

The children were playing High Five netball, an adapted version of the full size game.  The game has just five positions rather than the normal seven and uses a rotation system to allow children to experience all the playing positions. 

Bourne Elsea Park played extremely well, even though, for some of the children this was their first experience of competitive play.  Excellent team work and competitive, supportive play were demonstrated throughout the afternoon.  Elsea Park team finished in second place in the small schools league with their final against Cowbit Primary and all gained second place silver medals.

Congratulations to all those children who took part on the day and represented the school in such a fantastic way!
