28th / 29th September 2018
Friday evening saw Dame Janet host the first round of the John Curran Cup. Our year 5 and 6 boys were competing against four other schools to win a place into the second round. Although the boys played well they unfortunately did not make it through. Well done to Harley, Blazej, Max, Oliver, Charlie, Alfie, Mo, Dylan and Cadan.
It was an early start Saturday morning for our year 5 and 6 girls football team, as they headed to Upton to play for the DW Trophy and TPSFA Girls Cup. In the group stage the girls won one, drew one and lost one, which resulted in them coming second and progressing to the next round. The first of the second round games ended in a draw so it was time for an intense penalty shoot out, which the girls won 4-3. They then went on to play their last game against St Saviours, to determine who came 3rd and 4th. Unfortunately the girls lost the last game but finished 4th in the competition, out of a total of 16 schools. Well done Louisa, Lana, Eva, Chloe, Lacy, Lucy, Cassie and Grace. A great achievement!

After school on Thursday our year 5 and 6 girls played their first football matches of the year. Fourteen girls split into two teams represented Dame Janet and played three friendly games against Bromstone, St Ethelberts and each other. Even though no goals were scored the girls played well, had fun and, as always, demonstrated great sportsmanship. It was a good practice in preparation for the upcoming football season!
