Over the October half term 35 pupils from Year 7 and 8 went on a Rugby and Netball tour to Dubai. After the exciting build up to the tour, the pupils were not to be disappointed!
Dubai delivered an amazing lifetime experience in every way. Trips to the Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world), a Desert Safari (including camel rides and 4x4 Jeep rides through the dunes), Wild Wadi Water Park and a sightseeing tour around the city all added to the huge success the pupils had on the sports field.
The U12 and U13 Netball teams competed in the Dubai Desert Netball Championships, with the U12 gaining silver medals. The U13 girls also secured a fabulous win in Abu Dhabi vs their top club.
The U13 boys rugby team won two of their three matches, playing some great running rugby against a much bigger opposition, with the highlight playing Dubai Exiles on the Sevens Stadium main pitch under floodlights.
Well done to all of our tourists for being outstanding ambassadors of the school and for contributing to a truly amazing tour.
