Preps 2, 3 & 4 made the most of the sun early this week in many outdoor team games. They were challenged to develop tactics and show their teamwork that they’ve developed over the whole term within their team sports.
On Saturday seven players from St Christopher’s (including two ex pupils) took part in the Exeter junior table tennis tournament. All of our players managed to win matches throughout the afternoon. Sacha got through to the semifinals where he unfortunately lost to his older brother Joseph but came back to win the third place play…
One of the school yesterday at the Buckfastleigh Pony Race before the point to point. It’s incredible what our School children get up to after a busy week!
