Hockey players focused on effective passing within zones work in today’s session 10/10/16. Lewis, Estee, Nadiyah and Maddy created some outstanding passes.  Effective shielding was demonstrated by Nadia too, which prevented a defender tackling and gaining possession.  Ella made a fantastic tackle and set Lewis up nicely for a goal.  Maddy offered jade effective support in attack, with Jade scoring. Louisa defended her goal well preventing Jade scoring another.  The final score 5-2.  Ieaun the was very impressed with the progress made tonight.

Well done all, it was very impressive to witness such progress.  Mrs Wood

R10 & R11 Rugby Festival

St John’s College proudly hosted their first ever contact rugby festival this Friday. The festival was held at our superb playing fields and saw over 80 young players take part which is fantastic. All games were played on an enjoyment basis with no scores being recorded. Pupils travelled from across Cardiff and even further afield. We were proud to host Greenway Primary, St Clare’s, Ysgol Y Castell and Bro Eirwg.

All pupils were a credit to their schools, showing fantastic sportsmanship throughout the afternoon. It was a privilege to host this tournament and we will look to expand it further in the coming years. I would like to personally thank all the parents who attended for their ongoing support.

Well done to all involved,

Mr Williams
