It has been terrific to see the girls being able to compete again at various sporting fixtures. Here are some of the recent highlights.
The U14 and U16 teams competed in a Herts County Athletics meet against very strong opposition from St Clement Danes, St Margaret’s, Parmiter’s School, Watford Girls and St Michael’s at Woodside Stadium. It was fantastic to see the girls competing after so long without any school fixtures. All the girls performed superbly in really challenging conditions – particularly the distance runners who had to cope with the immense heat. Zoe threw an eye-watering 30 metre distance in the javelin to win the event and Sarah, Feranmi and Zabel were also victorious in their respective events. Well done to all the girls who represented St Helen’s – it was a fantastic experience in what was the first athletics meet for many of the girls.
Year 5 swimmers were delighted to take part in their first swimming gala in over a year and there were some very close and exiting races! Congratulations to Northwood College who took 50 points v St Helen’s 38 – well done to all girls who took part. We look forward to a rematch against Northwood College soon!
