Basketball Competition 2019
On Wednesday 13th November ten children from year 5 and 6 represeted St. Thomas' at a Basketball tournament held at Herne Bay High School.
We were joined by 14 other teams from the area (15 in total) and were seperated into 3 groups of 5. Our group was labelled 'a tough group' as we had the defending champions drawn against us.
We participated well and eventually missed out on a semi-final spot by 1 point (coming 5th out of 15 teams).
A huge well done to our team: Tifi Anto, Kornelija Savicke, Stephen-Maxwell Tewiah, Emily Kuriakose, Issac Hougham-King, Noel Abraham, Rohan Litto, Zerich Tewiah, Leo Tighe and Caitlin Harmison.
"It was a very enjoybale experience and we played really well as a team" - Emily
"Our matches were hard and one team were really physical" - Caitlin
"I was so proud of our team and representing the school" - Kornelija
"We were so close to reaching the semi-final, despite that it was fun" - Rohan
The children and staff here at St. Thomas' had the opportunity to workout alongside top Invictus Game athlete Darran Challis.
Darran spent time with the children, inspiring us with his life story whilst linking sporting and Christian values. His work ethos really rubbed off on all of us.
A truly fantastic day had by all.....
