Ashfield District Table Tennis Competition

The Key Stage 3 Ashfield District Table Tennis competition took place on 27th February at National. 3 teams competed in the tightly contested event; year 9 girls, year 9 boys (A team) and year 8 boys (B team).  
The year 9 girls (Phoebe, Beth, Tiffany and Lauren) performed brilliantly to come away with a Silver medal, losing out to Selston for the top spot in the last few games.  In the boys competition, the year 9’s (Mitchell, Dan, Kieran and Harley) faced some tough competition and narrowly missed out in the bronze medal match to finish in fourth place and the year 8’s (Jack, Ethan, Lewis and Reece) gained invaluable match practise to come sixth place.

There will be lots happening, including a book quiz in tutor time, challenges and competitions throughout the day. We will also be celebrating by taking part in Readathon, a sponsored read to raise money for charity between Monday 6th and Friday 10th March. Over 40 students have already signed up and we’re hoping to raise even more money than previous years.
