On Saturday 1st June, 8 pupils from Highfield Junior School went to represent the school and the borough at the English National Korfball Finals. This event was held at the Copperbox Arena in the London Olympic Park and featured the top school and adult Korfball players in the country.
Our first game was against a very physical side who used their height advantage well to record a narrow 4-2 victory, meaning Highfield went into the Plate competition for the remainder of the day. We won our next two games comfortably (5-1 and 4-2), meaning we won the National Plate Trophy.
This is a fantastic achievement, ranking us in the top 5 schools for Korfball nationally. Well done to all the pupils involved.
