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

World Championship Golfer!

Tom Trowbridge shot a 9 over gross 81 in awful conditions of the back tees at Trentham NR Stoke on Trent. In a small field of elite golfers on the UK Junior Golf Tom started well with two pars but quickly fell behind with two quick doubles. The rain and wind made everything more difficult and Tom struggled early on and was 8 over par after 8 and 4 shots behind the leader. A much needed birdie on 9 changed the round as Tom started to adapt better to the conditions. He played steadily until he dropped shots on 13 and 14, and as he teed up on 15, a 190 par 3 he needed something special to keep his dreams alive. A career 3 rescue to 2 feet led to a birdie and two shot swing with the other golfleaders who both bogeyed. Tom finished with 3 solid pars to win narrowly by a single shot and book his place in the http://www.jakartaworldjuniorgolf.com.

This 72 hole competition is especially exciting as it is in Jakarta, Indonesia and is an all expenses paid trip of a life time. Played on one of the top championship courses, 5 star accommodation and local caddies are provided. Tom is especially pleased as the competition runs from 4-7 June and gets him an extra week off school with the kind support of Court Fields Community School.
