7th March, 2016
Girls’ Football team success – Our team won their heat and got through to the second stage. There they finished joint second on points but came third when goal difference was considered. We are extremely proud of their achievement especially when it is considered in the light of the fact that our team had no substitutes available at any point in the competition and were playing against some considerably bigger schools! The team included Emily-Jane Simmons, Felicity Stephens, Ella Powell, Chloe Teague, Annie Selwyn, Elliah Powell and Willow Summers
Netball success – Parkend’s netball team has won their heat of the local competition. They beat Lydbrook ‘B’ and Yorkley and drew with St Briavels in the first stage and beat Ellwood in the final. They now go forward to the next stage on 14th March.
Well done to the team which included Ella Powell, Chloe Teague, Scarlett Bowers, Emily- Jane Simmons, Annie Selwyn, Felicity Stephens, Billy Baggus, Euan Uzzell and also to Miss Adams.
Cross-Country – Well done to all our runners that took part in the cross country held at Newent last Friday. Annie Selwyn came 10th and has been invited to represent the Forest of Dean district at the county finals. There were also excellent performances from Ella Powell, Emily-Jane Simmons and Felicity Stephens who came 22nd, 29th and 30th.
Royston Turley – Everyone at Parkend Primary was saddened to hear of the passing of Royston Turley in February. He contributed so much to the life of our school for so long that he will be very greatly missed. As well as being a governor of the school he loved so much for more than 40 years he was also, of course, Mrs Roberts’ father. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult and challenging time.
