13th December 2019 — The All Hallows Under 13 Girls Hockey side have qualified for the England In2hockey National Finals. Having previously qualified through the Somerset round, they recently took part in the South West qualifiers. The top 2 teams from 8 counties played off and after some really tough matches they made it to the final! All Hallows are now in the last 8 teams in the country and will play the top two teams from the North, Midlands and South East at the National finals in May.
Reflecting upon the day, Hockey Coach Mr Callow said "it was a real joy to see the girls show grit, determination, bravery and team work to overcome some top quality opposition. The calmness, focus and resilience to overcome some real challenges and work through tough situations really showed why developing character in children is a fundamental and crucial part to pupils' education. Watching the girls hold their nerve through sudden death penalty flicks and support each other throughout the day really was a joy to behold. The team consisted of Tallula, Minty, Kambua, Tilly, Shona, Scarlett, Ava and Ryanne and they are already preparing hard for the finals in May".
