Holsworthy beat Shebbear Sixth Form!

On Wednesday 16th January our Year 10 netball team played Shebbear Year 11s and sixth form students.

The game was goal to goal and very much constantly being turned over. After the first quarter we had a 1-0 lead, but got battered in the second quarter with them taking a 4-2 lead. We were working on our passages of play and timings in the third quarter, which ended up with us coming out with a 6-5 lead.

In the last quarter we were fighting really hard, but with 5 minutes to go, they were one goal up and one of our players got injured. We had to make a quick change and re-adjust our team. We were working so hard for the win and everyone was giving all their effort.

We managed to score two more goals before the final whistle for us to win the game 9-8.

It was a real team effort from everyone and Katie was named player of the match.

Thank you Waitrose Customers

On Thursday 20th December, I was delighted to be able to go along to Waitrose, Holsworthy, to collect a cheque for £265, which was as a result of members of the public choosing to support us via their Community Matters scheme.

“We are delighted to be able to help with any school fitness project and it’s a pleasure to be able to present this cheque to Holsworthy Community College.” Marilyn, Waitrose Holsworthy Branch.

I would like to thank all the Waitrose shoppers that supported our fund-raising project to purchase a treadmill for the College fitness suite.

We will continue our fundraising efforts to ensure we provide our students with the best possible facilities.

Mr Vanstone, Head of PE, Holsworthy Community College
