Hockey Team through to Southern Area Finals!

Well done to our Y6 Hockey team and their coach, Mrs. Rachel McCartain. Here is the letter I received from the Littlehampton Locality Sports Leader, Sandy Fell:

It made my week today to see how much progress  St. Philip’s has made since the LASP Hockey tournament in October. It really was a joy to see how much they had come on and improvements could be seen in their skills,  tactics and teamwork.

Clearly progress has been the product of the sheer effort and enthusiasm of the players and also extra coaching sessions that the team has benefitted from. My hat goes off to  Rachel  who has done a top draw job with the team.

 The Southern Area Partnership has 68 primary schools … all of them potentially could have entered the locality round of this event … so the team should feel incredibly proud of their placings, St Philip’s 2nd place.

St. Philip’s will now join Steyning [winners by a narrow margin ] and represent the partnership at the Sussex School Games on the 8th July.

 The aim now is for this side to bring back medals from this prestidgous event.
