FRIDAY 28th APRIL 2017
The Building Bridges 25k challenge is looming, and I am training in earnest to complete my walk over 15 iconic bridges and across 10 historic landmarks in London.
I will begin at Putney Bridge, and hope to make it to the top of The Shard to celebrate the end of this epic challenge!
The reason for the challenge is to raise significant funds for the new build, whilst also supporting the charity ‘MIND’ to promote awareness of mental health.
A JustGiving page has been set up for any donations/sponsorship, and can be found using the following link:
Football tournament at Knole Academy 11th March 2017 – report by Charlie and Sam Year 6
We came into the tournament having won the league as a really strong team. We had a challenging group including: Chevening, Lady Boswells, St Johns and Churchill. The first game against St John’s was fairly even for the first 3 minutes then Charlie H scored a left foot bottom right corner. The second goal showed quite some skill. Charlie H drilled the ball to Frankie and he hit it into the bottom corner. The final score was 2-1 to us.
The second game we played was against Churchill. This was a tight game all because of our lack of play. In the end we scored a cracking goal from Will C. The end result was a tight going 1-0 to us.
We won the next game 1-0 against Lady B but would rather not talk about it!
The next game or final game of our group ended as a 0-0 draw against Chevening.
We reached the semi-finals. We were playing against Otford. It was one of the tightest games our team had ever played together. Both teams had lots of chances. After normal time, the score was 0-0; however, SPS won on corners. This meant that we went to the finals.
After a minute, the first and only goal was scored by Charlie H. Sam W made some incredible saves and in the end, it stayed 1-0 to SPS. Once more, we have won the tournament at Knole Academy keeping up our good record of wins.
The triumphant team: Charlie, Ben, Jack, Sam, Ashton, Will, Stefan, Sam and a very proud Mr Duffy!
Southern Counties Hockey Tournament report
What an eventful day!
On Wednesday 15th March 2017 a team of 10 boys participated in the Southern Counties Hockey Tournament at Woking, Surrey. Teams travelled from Surrey, Hampshire, London, Oxfordshire, Sussex, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. With the top teams from such a large area we knew it was going to be a very tough day ahead!
With 3 matches in the first round we managed to win 2 and draw 1. This enabled the team to go through to the quarter-final to play a team from Oxfordshire.
This was a tense game where we managed to score one goal, enough to place us in the semi-finals.
The Sevenoaks boys played really well in the semi-final against a team from Berkshire and we had a comfortable 3-0 win.
The final match against a Surrey team was nail-biting, with a 1-1 draw at half time it was all to play for.
The parents on the sidelines were beside themselves with nerves, encouraging the boys with every shot of the game.
With a second goal in the in the net it was a case of defending our goal to keep the lead. When the final whistle blew there was elation all round with the realisation that Sevenoaks Primary School were the Southern Counties Hockey Champions. What a wonderful accolade to achieve.
Much of the credit must go to Duncan Parnis from Sevenoaks Hockey Club who has been coaching the boys and saw the potential in this fine group of players.
Sam, Charlie, Ben, Will, Michael, Ben, Jack, Sam, Joe and Joe.
