Congratulations to Catherine, Alexis, Archie and Joseph in Year 4 who came second when representing St Joseph’s at the county mini- tennis finals last week.
The four children have all been taking tennis lessons with Hayley from the Christchurch Tennis Club and were initially invited to take part in the town’s schools’ competition. They won this- playing the final against another team from St Joseph’s School!
In July they were invited to take part in the County finals, with another seven schools and came 2nd. They received silver medals and a bag of tennis goodies.
“Hayley really encouraged us!” Catherine
“We enjoyed taking part and having fun while playing against other schools,” Archie
” Mr Chesters, Mrs Bussell and Mrs Mortimer all cheered us on!” Joseph
“We really enjoyed tennis and would like to do it in the future,” Alexis
