BiG Challenge Success

As the first stage of the BiG Challenge draws to a close, participating teams are preparing their final reports ready for submission. The teams took the chance to make some final sales during the trade fayre held on Tuesday 11th during lunchtime and two of our teams sold out completely at the event. Out of the original 10 teams, four have made it through to the end of the competition: Recipes Worldwide, Sweet Treats, Green fingers and Jarful.  All of these teams have produced really good products and made a profit. 

We were visited by Nathan Delves, Recycling and Innovations director from Veolia Sheffield and Liz Yoxall from BiG challenge who viewed the stalls and gave the students some feedback on their business and completing their final report. Nathan enjoyed the event immensely and offered to coach the teams further should the make it through to the final stages of the competition.

Y11 Football Success!

On Tuesday 10th February 2015 we hosted the U16 Girls City Futsal Tournament.  We played Westfield in the first game where the girls struggled initially with pace but gradually got into the game.  We were 4-0 down at half time.  Following a team talk the girls went back out ready to go and managed a 0-0 draw in the second half.  Unfortunately after a little waiting around Park academy never turned up to play.   The girls were a credit to the school, they showed great independence organising the team and themselves and hopefully they will go on to get a win.

Player of the game was Katie as she kept the score line closer than it could have been, but congratulations to all the team. 

A big thank you to all the Y11’s that came to support after session 6 as this created a great atmosphere and showed Springs in a great light.

Y8's March On!

On Monday 19th January 2015 our Y8’s faced Handsworth Grange in a league fixture.  Full of confidence from the tournament last week they set off to an 8-0 lead in the first third.  We mixed the team around and set ourselves a defensive target not to let them score.  They achieved this target and carried on scoring to win 16-0. We are now top of the league and chasing promotion to a full time position in the A league. 

A massive congratulations to Nkosi, Holly and Eliza who played new positions very successfully and to Georgia who got voted player of the game by Handsworth.

Congratulations team!

Y8 Just Get Better!

As a team we made the decision to enter the ‘A’ League schools tournament last night, the best netball teams in the city are at this tournament, including teams that play in national tournaments.  As a school we have not entered this tournament for many years.

The team arrived a little nervous but we discussed conduct and the level we were about to be a part of and went in.  We were in league of 5 teams with the top 2 progressing through.  We had some amazing play and held King Edwards 2-2 in the first half.  We scored against all teams (except Sheffield High 1’s!) and eventually got our first win.  As the evening went on their confidence and the belief that we could stand our own ground against these teams grew.  We ended up coming 3rd in our league and just missing out on going through to the semi-finals.  The girls played some outstanding netball and several netball umpires commented on their attitude towards the games and their ability when playing.  

If you see the girls today please congratulate them it was a real step forward for Y8 netball at Springs. 

A big thank you to Mrs Jackson for taking us.

Y8 Netball Success

On Thursday 8th January we had a late fixture against Park Academy, down in numbers due to illness we set off to face a team with an unbeaten record.

As the 4 quarters went on we gained in confidence and found we had a good chance of winning.  We went into the last quarter 2 points down.  The girls pulled together and we eventually beat Park Academy 10-8.  The game was of a very high standard, fast and very physical but our girls stood the test. It was the best game of the season so far and they were very pleased. Congratulations team!
