This a win with a difference however. Yesterday was the 2019 Alford Netball Challenge which saw a select group of staff take on our pupil netball teams. All matches were close fought, but in the end… and we can’t quite believe we did it…. the staff won, by one point. We are very proud of our pupil netball teams, and we thank you all for being such great sports! A huge thank you to all the parent volunteers who have faithfully invested so much of their time in developing the teams.
