On Tuesday 24th September, the St. James Netball A Team went to Chiddingstone to play a netball match.  After many attempts to get there, (including one accidentally driving up the vicar's driveway, thinking it was the Rec!), we found the courts.  In the first quarter, we managed to gain 3 goals, getting an early lead.  In the next quarter, we rotated positions and though they were different, we still managed to stay ahead.  By the end of the match, the score was 10-4 to us.  They gave us very delicious cookies, which we were very grateful for.  They chose the 'player of the Match', and it was Eleanor, (St. James).  Thank you to Mrs Moriarty for driving us there and to Miss Gibson for coaching us.  We all had a great time.

Dog Show

Congratulations to Kuba, in Year 6, who recently took his dog to a local show and won 4th place; he proudly showed his rosette.
