18th Annual Junior Schools’ Sports Tournament
Last Friday we welcomed 129 girls from 11 different prep schools who came to take part in QM’s 18th Annual Junior Schools’ Sports Tournament. The rain held off for the majority of the day which involved a Netball Tournament and a Cross Country Event. It was fantastic to see such team spirit from all of our visitors and many of the girls’ parents were courtside to support their daughters which added a real sense of occasion.
Our Year I girls were each responsible for hosting a visiting team and some also represented QM on the Netball court. The visiting girls got to experience the QM food when they had lunch with their hosts in the Dining Room, whilst the visiting parents and staff enjoyed lunch in The Wenlock Library. The day was brought to a close with a wonderful presentation ceremony in St Margaret’s Chapel with Mrs Miles announcing the day’s winners.
