On Saturday 4th October the Pre-Prep school hosted the Year 3 hockey festival at its sports ground at Beggar's Bush. Mrs Anne Askew, teacher in charge of games in the Pre-Prep organised the event which included teams from Beaudesert, St Johns on the Hill, Red Maids, BGS, Kingswood and 3 teams from Clifton College. The festival was a hugely enjoyable event for all, with the girls enjoying the opportunity to play in a match situation whilst benefitting from constructive coaching. The Pre-Prep teams played magnificently and we are very proud of all of the girls. The Clifton Tigers and Clifton Panthers played steadily and made significant improvement in their match play during the morning. The Clifton Lions umpired and coached by Mrs Louise Catchpole Head of Hockey in the Upper School played very strongly, and impressively won all of their games by a significant margin. The morning was rounded off with a well earned match tea in the Pavilion for the players and refreshments for the parents. Well done to all of the Year 3 girls who came to BB to take part.
