Year 5 Basketball Team praised for attitude and endeavour

Result: 4th place

A small group of Year 5 children had an evening celebrating  their basketball skills with children from across the locality. Playing in small games of 4-a-side meant the children certainly got a great work out!

Strong teams from Georgian Gardens, St Margaret’s and St. John the Baptist took part in the event, which was largely comprised of Year 6 children and this greater age and experience did show in the end.  Mr Gwynn was keen to praise the EPJS squad for their attitude and endeavour and the experience will stand them in good stead for next year.

Thanks as always to  Mr Gwynn and his team of sports leaders for organising this event; our opponents for making competition possible; Mr Bylett for organising and motivating his team and to parents and carers for the unsung role they play in transporting, cheering on and washing kit!
