Pupils from Year two entered a football tournament at Grange Technology College and played against four other schools.  We are delighted to say that our team drew one match and won the other three matches.  They then went on to win the tournament and were presented with medals and certificates.  All the pupils played extremely well, were very well behaved and acted as great ambassadors for our school.
