O'Prey Academy vs Oak Lodge

Tuesday 26th March was no ordinary day for the O'Prey academy girls, it was the day that we would face local rivals, Oak Lodge in a fierce footballing battle. On this day, the girls were captained by Hannah S who lead an iron clad defence with Grace and Maya to ensure that super keeper, Phoebe, was well protected.

At half time, Oak Lodge were leading, although this was not a true representation of the game where it was felt that the Highfield girls were outplaying them. After a splash of water and a dash of O'Prey inspiration, the girls started the second half with a bang, in the form of a power shot from Hanna K. This goal was closely followed by some lovely skill from Thuy-Anh which resulted in the ball in the back of the net again with some nice passing from Sophia to boot.

The final score was 2-1 to Highfield which was largely due to a fantastic team effort, but the manager noticed one player in particular who was relentless in her fight to gain control and that player was Erin who was awarded a well-deserved player of the match.
Yet again, the girls were fantastic ambassadors for Highfield Junior School and so the win was just an added bonus.

St David's Dash

 

On Monday 18th March, 20 children from Year 5/6 took part in the St Davids Dash cross country event. In the face of some literally last minute call ups, all the children ran superbly, with Jay D's 5th place a particular highlight. Well done to all -below is the top two in each year group!

Bromley Primary School Cross Country

 

On Saturday 9th March, 33 children from Highfield took part in the Bromley Primary School Cross Country races at Crystal Palace park.

Our children ran fantastically well, showing determination and resilience throughout, gaining some fantastic personal achievements. Overall, we came 6th in the large schools competition.

 

Special congratulations to the top girl and boy in each year group:


Year 3: Alice R (8th place), Alexander B (19th place)

Boys' Football - Hayes Primary School

 

On Friday 15th March 2019, the boys’ football team played away against Hayes Primary School. The boys were determined to win the match because it was a cup and league match. Despite the treacherous conditions of the rain and cloud, Ben P got a lucky goal in the first half which put us top for the rest of the match. Everyone was pleased. 1-0 to Highfield.
 

Man of the Match was awarded to Albie H even though there where many special mentions for Ethan, Luca and Ben.

 

Highfield are now through to the semi-finals and top of the league.​

Highfield v Pickhurst

 

This was the hardest game and the biggest game of the season. In the first half Henry B was the first goal scorer. Then danger struck with a goal by Pickhurst’s number 10. The half ended with a stop as we were attacking (what a biased referee!). Out of nowhere, during the first few minutes of the second half Ben P scored and then minutes later Raphael scored with a cheeky goal around the keeper. Unfortunately for us, Pickhurst were awarded a free kick, managing to get another goal in. Two minutes later they then managed to score again with a goal around the keeper.

 

The game ended 3-3. We played much better than Pickhurst and we came away with happy faces.

Tag Rugby Festival

 

On Tuesday 5th March, Highfield took two teams to the Hawes Down Tag Rugby festival. The Highfield Hornets, captained by Barney T, played impressively throughout, looking to score with every possession and swarming the opposition in defence. The Highfield Harriers, captained by Rhys T, faced some tough opponents with enthusiasm, showing great progression as the festival went on. Well done to everyone involved.

Girls' Football Squad

 

After weeks of intense training, the O'Prey academy girls' football squad travelled to Clare House for our first ever fixture on Friday 1st March.

We found ourselves up against a far more experienced team of Year 5 and 6 girls but we certainly held our own. Captained by Iris B, the girls represented Highfield brilliantly: they played as a team, supported each other and were respectful to the opposition. Betsy C was aggressive in defence, with Thuy-Anh L working tirelessly up front. The final score was 3-1 to Clare House with Hanna K and Phoebe earning joint 'Player of the Match'. Hanna for scoring a screamer for Highfield and our goalkeeper, Phoebe with her cat-like reflexes, preventing any more goals from the opposition.


All-in-all, a wonderful first game for this development squad.
