Year 7 Rugby turn out in force for their first rugby games in Court Fields Colours.

year7Rugby

Through their commitment in training the Year 7 Rugby Squad were able to field 2 full teams of 12 in a recent Central Ventue Event at Bishop Fox’s.

The teams played against the other schools in the area and showed bags of enthusiasum and commitment. Both teams should be proud of what they have achieved. For many of the students this was their first experience of playing competivtive rugby.  Definitely some boys to watch out for in the future.

Year 10 Football

On Tuesday 25th March, Court Fields year 10 students played host to their inaugural fixture against Wellington School. A much anticipated local derby had Court Fields players chomping at the bit to get the game started. Wellington school started brightly and quickly settled into the game with some slick passing. Good defence kept them out and allowed Court Fields to counter on several occasions. Myles opened the account 15 mins into play with a ground shot that passed swiftly under the keeper. Shortly after the ref judged that a Court Fields player had been pushed in the area and promptly pointed at the spot. Tom smashed the ball into the net giving the keeper no chance of a save.

The second half was more of an even affair with Wellington school coming close on several occasions. A final flourish from Court Fields saw Kieran find the net to round off a deserved 3-0 victory. This was a great fixture and one that both parties felt should remain in the calendar.

Year 9/10 Girls Football

Court Fields 1 – 0 Kings College

Court Fields welcomed a very talented Kings College side. Both teams played some really neat football, creating numerous chances. Court Fields School players Gould and Hollick, resumed normal duty, winning the central midfield battle as per usual. Great defensive performances from Currie, Salter, McCabe and the ever-reliable Buttle reduced Kings to minimal shots on goal, and even when they did, Mitchell was certainly more than equal to it. It was particularly down the wings that Court Fields cause Kings most problems through the engines of Nutkins, Sears, Roncaglia and Channon. The goal finally came through the prolific Grabham with 5 minutes remaining, cutting in from the right hand side to slot home with a clinical finish, giving Court Fields a well deserved win. The girls must now take this performance and take it into next week’s game away at Taunton Academy. Superb work girls!!!

Supporting Charities

Madagascar

Well done and a big thank you to all the students, parents and staff who supported our Madagascar Week, 22nd – 26th April. Everyone has managed to raise over £3,166 and the money is still coming in! During the week each house took it in turns to fund raise. There were cake sales, sponge the teacher, lots of different competitions, leg waxing, face painting and lots more various sponsored events during the week including Mr Taylor having his head shaved and Mr Saunders who ran the Taunton half marathon and raised about £120. Mr Saunders said it was an enjoyable experience but next time he would like to train a bit harder for it, and finish under 2 hours.

It all finished on Friday with 30 students and 8 staff taking part in a sponsored walk to the Monument and back, carrying bricks and planks of wood. This is how children in Madagascar often walk to school every day using the bricks and wood as a seat or desk when they arrive.
We are very confident that we will reach our £2000 target by the end of the term. At the moment with all the fundraising we have done since September we are just under £2,000! This will make a massive difference to the people and children in Madagascar and will be able to pay for toilets to be put into a school!

Cancer Research UK

On the 10th – 11th of May my family and family friends are going to do the three peaks challenge, this is where you climb the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales. The plan is to start at 5pm on Friday and finish at 5pm on Saturday. We are doing this to raise money for Cancer Research UK and hope to raise £1000 between us. If you would like to sponsor us please go to: JustGiving.com/bowler-3-peaks. All sponsors are greatly appreciated.
Many thanks Harvey Bowler T04
