It was a great day on Friday 8 June for the Primary 6 netball tournament at St George's. The sun was shining and we had six teams excited to play in an afternoon of netball. Schools from Cramond, George Watson’s College, Flora Stevenson and Davidson Mains were all involved and we had two teams from St George's, made up from the girls who had attended club in the summer term. In a round robin format the teams got the opportunity to play everyone and seemed to enjoy the action packed afternoon. There were many tightly contested matches, particularly against St George's blue team and George Watson’s College with St George's winning by a goal in the ten minute match. Congratulations to all the girls from Primary 6 who participated and a big well done to the St George's blue team who won overall.
Some of the girls from Primary 6 netball club went along to the Primary 6 Edinburgh Primary Schools Sport Association summer festival on Monday 11 June. They enjoyed the opportunity to play on a full size court and to shoot into full size nets at the Oriam Sports Centre. The girls did extremely well to win 3 out of 4 of their games and were unfortunate to suffer an early defeat from Bruntsfield Primary School who went on to win the tournament. It has been a great season for the Primary 6 netball girls, who have developed their skills and now have a better understanding of the rules of the game. The girls can now look forward to even more netball next year in Remove.
The P7 Edinburgh Primary Schools Sport Association summer tournament was another very competitive event where the girls faced four teams in the rounds before progressing to the semi-finals. The finals took place at St George’s and were certainly action packed. After a 2-2 draw at full time against Bruntsfield Primary School, the game went to extra time and then after another draw, into golden goal. Fortunately it was St George’s who scored the final goal and progressed to the final against The Mary Erskine School. This was another tight and competitive game. The score sat at 2-2 until the last 30 seconds of the game when St George’s slotted the ball in the net from a long range shot. The girls' hard work paid off. They put their heart and soul into their performance and certainly deserved to win!
