Lent term sports newsletter 2024

From the Director of Sport

A short and compact term sees the Easter holidays around the corner and the annual ski trip ready to depart to the Alps. A bumper-packed issue this term of competitions, fixtures and events involving the whole of the St Helen’s community and the wider area.

We welcomed Mr Nyroy Dixon into the department in January, as a specialist dance teacher with a wealth of expertise to teach dance in the PE curriculum and in extracurricular clubs. These will continue to run throughout the summer term with a dance show planned for next academic year. The new extracurricular club timetable is ready and your daughters have been emailed the schedule ahead of the new term. All PE clubs begin in earnest on the first week back commencing Monday 15 April.

As the summer term approaches, we are delighted to have progressed to the regional round of the ECB Schools Indoor Cricket competition at both U13 and U15 age groups and look forward to defending our national title. Read about our progress in the article below.

This term has also seen the lacrosse and netball programmes culminate with national championships and finals days with a huge effort made by all students in these sports. Thanks to Mark Harris, Will Clements and DE photography for the action shots. If you would like a copy of any of the photos in this newsletter, please email me on the details below and I will attach a digital copy.

Many of you will have noticed that the PE Department is now on Instagram @shsksport. This is where up-to-date action shots and information about School sport will now be posted. Please do give us a follow.

Have an enjoyable Easter break and we look forward to the sunshine and summer sports programme.

Charlotte Barras, Director of Sport
