Basketball League

On Thursday 26th January a squad of five children were selected to represent St John’s at the annual Basketball league. The league runs over two evenings with the second event taking place on the 2nd February.  In the first round of games, St John’s played some fantastically well ensuring that they came away with two victories out of four games.  This put them in a good position going into the final round of games.

Well done to everybody who took part and good luck for the next set of games!
