Autumn Sports Preview

First of all, may I belatedly extend my good wishes to all those who have returned for the new school year.  I would also like to wish all our newest children a happy and productive stay at our school.

As far as sport is concerned, we have a busy programme of both competitive and friendly fixtures coming up between now and the festive holidays.

We start on Monday, September 30th, when the school’s runners will be contesting the area 3 x 900m cross-country relay competition at King’s College.

During October, there will be handball (Monday, 7th) for Years 5 & 6 and boys’ Year 3/4 football (Monday, 14th) sessions at Heathfield School (3.50-5pm).  The school will also be involved in friendly tag rugby matches at Bishop Fox’s School on Tuesday, October 8th.

West Monkton’s girl footballers are due to compete in the Somerset FA Futsal competition on the 24th October and will be in friendly 7 aside action at King’s College on Wednesday, October 16th, and the month’s activities will conclude with the school team contesting the area sports hall athletics competition, also at King’s, on Tuesday, 22nd.

November is a particularly busy sporting month, starting with Year 3/4 boys’ football friendlies at Heathfield on the Monday 4th, while the following afternoon will be taken up by tag rugby friendlies at Blackbrook Pavilion.  These friendlies will continue at the same venue on Tuesday, 26th.

There is plenty more football taking centre stage during the month with friendlies at Heathfield and girls’ friendlies at King’s on Wednesday, 13th. The boys’ year 5 & 6 team will be in competitive action at Heathfield on Monday, 18th.

King’s College will also be the location when Monkton’s cross-country runners take on athletes from other local schools over a 1,400m course on Monday, November 11th.

There will be football friendlies for year 1 & 2 at Heathfield on Monday, December 2nd, and the sporting term will end when Monkton girl footballers are involved in the county cup competition against other local schools at King’s on Wednesday, 11th.

Apart from the tag rugby at Blackbrook Pavilion, which takes place between 2.30 and 4pm, all the events are due to get under way at 3.50pm. Please check for scheduled finishing times.  Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information.

Enjoy your sport
