Our year 5&6 basketball team played in the City Wide Basketball Finals on Wednesday. The competition was extremely high and our children gave everything. They managed to reach the semi final, but lost by one basket. I am so proud of the hard work and effort the children put in to get as far as they did. Well done to all of our basketball squad.
