Tag Rugby Tournament at Maghull High School - Wednesday 17th May 2017
Our resident Tag Rugby coach took our team to Maghul High School for a Tag Rugby Tournament this afternoon. The children played a variety of short matches against other local Primary Schools. They were triumphant in their first 4 games with some fantastic runs leading to big points. Summerhill's team breezed to the final stages where they were unfortunatley defeated to come a well deserved second place. Well done to all who took part, we are very proud of the grit and determination you showed!
Year 6 Swimming Gala - Friday 18th November 2016
Children from Year 6 took part in a variety of events at the Swimming Gala at Crosby Leisrue Centre today and boy did they do us proud. We had Poppy bring home a gold medal for her 25m Free Style Race and we got Bronze in the Team Relay Race. Well done to all who took part. It really has been a fantastic morning!
Deyes High School Cross Country - Thursday 17th September 2016
It was a warm autumn evening when a group of very excited Summerhill pupils gathered on the field at Deyes High School. Boys and girls from Years 4, 5, and 6 were invited to race against other Maghull Primary Schools and boy did they do us proud!
First up was the Year 4 race. This was their first time at the event and they were buzzing with excitement. Waiting eagerly at the start line was Tom Hamer, George Deakin, Harry Garrigan, Shea Kennedy, Ellen Ashby, Jack Li Sanderson, Zak Bosanquet and Amelia Pinkney. George Deakin came in first place for our school with Tom Hamer and Shea Kennedy coming a close second and third. All of the children were fantastic and gave it their all.
Next up were the Year 5 children. Joe Glanister, Anthony Cook, Sam Jenkins and Harry Edditts had a game plan to pace themselves for the first lap and then really push it at the end. The plan was successful! Harry Edditts came flying in and came first for our school.
We had one representative for Year 6 and this was Bradley Kehoe and boy did he do well! Bradley dashed out for a speedy start but soon fell into a rhythm and began to pace himself. When the finish line was in sight, Bradley really pushed himself to get as high in the rankings as possible. He was competing against some fantastic athletes who attend cross country clubs regularly yet he was still able to come 10th out of more than 60 runners!
Congratulations and well done!
The next cross country event is scheduled to take place after school at Maghull High School on Thursday 8th October.

Wednesday 25th March 2016: High 5 Netball Tournament at Maricourt High School
On Wednesday 25th March, our two Summerhill Netball Teams entered a very challenging tournament at Maricourt High School.
The B team, consisting of Year 4 and 5 players, had a tough battle against other Year 5 and 6 Teams. They were enthusiastic and showed real determination. The team came in fifth place at the end of the tournament.
A big well done to everyone on the B team: Sam Jenkins, Poppy Dolan, Joe Glanister, Libby Glanister, Lydia Stringer, Jay Li Sanderson, Polly Blazey and Emily Byrne.
The A team also had a tough challenge on their hands playing competitive matches against teams such as St Thomas’ and Holy Rosary. We won a few matches and drew a few so we were unsure where we would come in the rankings. However, we were delighted when it was announced that we had come in Second Place!
Congratulations to our Summerhill A Team: Thalia Holiday, Isobel O’Neil, Louise Hague, Abbie Houghton, Jodie Berry, Orla McGary, Ella Shannon, Beth Noble and Lois Mosher.
