Notre Dame’s CTEC Sport Diploma students hosted an energetic championship on Thursday 7 March. As part of their studies, they invited year seven pupils from our three Catholic partner schools to take part in a netball contest. The idea was not only to provide an opportunity for competition, but also to encourage all those involved to take part in more regular netball training at school.
The year sevens from Mount St Mary’s Catholic High School, Corpus Christi Catholic College and Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School played enthusiastically against each other. At the end of an afternoon of high quality sport, Mount St Mary’s won the day. We also chose an outstanding player of the match from Cardinal Heenan and awarded her with a stylish Notre Dame hoodie.
Head of Sport Mr Scott Broadley commented, ‘The Year 7 Catholic partner school netball tournament produced an electric atmosphere in the sports hall. The event was extremely well marshalled and officiated by the CTEC Sport Diploma ‘Notre Girls Can’ team. There was some outstanding netball on display and all the players were rewarded with a positive experience.’
Well done to our fabulous students for organising the event, and thanks to the year sevens for being such good sports.
