U16 hockey girls go to District Champs

Following the girls’ U16 hockey team’s success at the county championships late last term, the next stage in their quest for glory is the district championships, to be held on Monday February 3.

We are really proud of their achievements so far and wish them very good luck for this, their greatest challenge yet. All parents are warmly invited to come and support the team at any point during the day. A map and directions can be found at www.rslonline.co.uk/location.html

The team will depart from school at 8am to be in time for their first match at 10am at the Redbridge Sports Centre in Essex.
