North Yorkshire Handball Champions
On Friday 21st March, the U15 Boys Handball Squad made the trip to York University to compete in the annual North Yorkshire Games. The day started with the lads being given an Orange shirt to designate they were representing 'Selby & District' and ended with them picking up 'Gold' medals and the Winners Trophy. Holy Family started with a wobble struggling to a 3 - 1 victory over local rivals Brayton High School but from then on they stepped up their game defeating King James' 10 - 1 and continued to show real composure in beating Lady Lumley's 6 - 4 and sealing victory with a hard earned 5 - 3 victory against St Aidan's. Head of PE, David Cooper was delighted with the success: "It's a wonderful achievement for the hard work and dedication the boys have put in. It is especially pleasing as it's the first time that Handball has been included in the North Yorkshire Games and the lads should be proud that they're the inaugural winners."
Thursday 27 March saw an evening of friends and family enjoying the performances of dance and gym routines created by the pupils of Holy Family. After 5 weeks of hard work and lots of hours of preparation the pupils had a dress rehearsal enjoyed by local primary schools.
The evening was a great success with lots of memories created. Mrs Hunt would like to thank all the pupils for their efforts and to the very large team of helpers behind the scenes who make the evening possible.
We hope you enjoy the pictures!
