Senior B Hockey
Our Senior B Hockey team came out on top in their first senior cup game of the year on Tuesday,4th March,versus Laurel Hill. It was very tense game with a score line of 2-2 at the final whistle, therefore forcing us into shuttles to decide the winners. The girls regained composure after ending the shuttles with 3 each, to enter sudden death, finally coming out on top 2-1. They now look forward to their next battle in two weeks.

As part of Fairtrade fortnight we are running a poster competition. The theme of the poster is on Cocoa.

Women in particular suffer from the unfair growing of cocoa & production of chocolate.
