1st Team Hockey Success

Charlotte L B-B (Selwyn's) reports on the 1st Team’s successful visit to Birkenhead School:

On Wednesday, the senior girls hockey team travelled to Birkenhead Independent school for the first match of the New Year. With little preparation especially after the Christmas holidays we weren't expecting much.

In the first half of the game it quickly became apparent that we had the upper hand with our quick pace, great interceptions and tackles. By the end of the first half we were winning 2-0 with two amazing goals scored by Libby H. Even though we were winning there were still pointers to discuss at half time such as the organisation of our short corners and not messing around in the D and just going for a straight strike.

In the second half, despite a little slip in defence allowing Birkenhead to score a goal we took on what was said at half time and scored a further 3 goals. Two of these goals were scored by Gabriella E and seemed to be done with ease just going straight into the left hand corner each time. The other goal was scored by Libby H giving her a well-deserved hat trick and us a well-deserved 5-1 win.

Well done girls!

Boarders’ Christmas Dinner

Our Year 12 boarders experienced their first Christmas Dinner at Liverpool College, where the dress code was Christmas jumpers as the Head Boy, Rhys H demonstrated admirably with his illuminated version with LED Christmas trees and baubles.

The students showed their appreciation to the catering staff for their hard work in preparing a scrumptious dinner with a flaming Christmas pudding by presenting each of the team with a festive gift.
