If you have not seen Siam play Badminton then you must! He has been able to beat all the PE teachers in the department and all students in the school. Siam represented Park View at the London Youth Games.
Some of the Year 7 and 10 netball team went on a trip to the Copper Box Arena in the Olympic Park to watch two super league netball teams play on Saturday 23rd June. It was an amazing experience, where the girls watched good practice to help them develop their own netball skills.
We look forward to seeing you all next year and hope to see some new faces at training!
Year 10 started off playing in a local tournament and played amazingly. With some great fielding and a couple of ‘out of this world’ one-handed catches from the captain Selda.The girls did really well against some strong competitors.
Our Year 8 team played in a tournament at Forstismere a week later. They played against seconday schools Fortismere, Alexandra Park and Gladesmore, beating them all and winning their league.
Park View then went on to play Greig City who narrowly beat us. However, Park View came second in the whole tournament, which was a great success.
Well done girls!
This term the focus has been on the Year 9 and 10 girls and boys tennis team as they were involved in the Team Tennis Schools Competition playing other schools in The Middlesex League.
Their dedication to the matches has been amazing, turning up to training and going to all matches.
We have played some very tough independent schools that play tennis outside of school and part of the curriculum. One boy that we played, even had a tennis rating of 7.1.
As a reward trip, Ms Heath took the team to Wimbledon for the day to watch some professional tennis.
Our Year 7 Netball champion Audila who is in the Netball team has been going to Chestnuts Primary School on fridays after school to help umpire their inter-school netball matches. Audilia has learnt a lot from her experience:
“ I’ve learnt that umpiring can be a hard job and you have to know the difference between equlity and equality and you have to be fair but strict. I want to continue this after summer and help develop my knowledge and skills in Netball.“
Maggie and Ellen in Year 8 have also been going to Chesnuts Primary School every friday to teach athletics to Year 5 and 6 pupils.
