Great start to the fixture calendar. It was fantastic to see so many students representing their school in one evening and to see some outstanding individual performances. A special mention to Ethan and Mackenzie for their success in the football and to Martha and Sacha for being nominated as player of the match in Netball. Thank you to those that stayed to help and support. Go TEAM NIDD, Mrs K
Last week students from Nidderdale got the opportunity to go and watch the T20 match between the Durham Jets and the Yorkshire Vikings. The students really enjoyed the atmosphere of over 8,500 people, and the close match which Yorkshire won by 10 runs!
A fantastic event being one of our best sports days so far. Everyone in the school had a part to play wether that was performing for their House, supporting or cheering their House Team. So proud to be part of Team Nidderdale.
Sports day scores:
This week we were lucky to have a visit from Chris Young from British Cycling who came in to do some cycling with the students. The students were able to develop their skills as well as trying out some new games and challenges. Remember for those who want to, there is a cycling club after school on a Monday!
The year 8 cricket team were in cup action against Ripon Grammar School this week and came oh so close to causing an upset. Scores below. It was a superb game and on another day could have so easily gone the other way. Nevertheless an amazing effort from the team!
Nidderdale 120-7 (20 overs) Isaac Light 23, Leo Wilson 50 not out
Ripon Grammar 121-6 (18 overs) Leo Wilson 4-8, Rachael Hattan 1 wicket
The most recent round of house competitions happened a few weeks ago, and the leaderboard could not be closer! All the points are leading up to sports day. Can anyone catch Pen y Ghent?
