On Friday 18th November the Netball team asked St Olaves over to West Lodge to play a friendly netball match. There were four quarters and whenever a quarter ended everyone would switch to different sides of the court. It was quite hard for the shooters to keep up! When the four quarters were over we gave three cheers to St Olaves, however we were all bursting with excitement as we had won the match 12-4. St Olaves were tough to beat but West Lodge are even tougher! It was a very enjoyable afternoon.
On Friday 25th November the Netball team went to Farringtons. It was supposed to be a league match but some of her players were missing so we made it a friendly instead. We will rearrange the league game. We played four quarters of 7 minutes each way. Farringtons were good at their netball so they weren’t easy to beat, but we did still win 16-3 to us. It was a very enjoyable match to play!

On the 19th October West Lodge went to Benedict House for a Hockey and Football Tournament.
Years 3 and 4 started the tournament off with lots of Hockey matches. The children have only just started learning Hockey and they all worked very hard. The children worked well as a team and enjoyed every minute of it. Isabel in particular made some fantastic saves in goal!
Year 5 and 6 then finished the day with our football matches. We were all excited and ready to play. We won most of our matches with myself, Jack, Jascha, Isaac and Louie scoring some great goals. Everyone else played brilliantly in defence and getting assists. Benedict House played really well today and scored a particularly great goal.
Overall, we had great fun and can’t wait to play them again!
