On 5th October Jamie-Leigh, Anna and Jenna took part in the Blackpool Bocca Championships at Blackpool 6th Form College. This was an event open to both primary and secondary students and there were 17 schools who took part in total. The girls played really well showing great team work and sportsmanship. They finished in 3rd place overall. Well done girls!
As part of a school wide charity drive 7F have done their part by doing a fantastic job of donating food and toiletries to the Street Life Appeal. Street Life is a homeless shelter in Blackpool looking after homeless people aged 16 to 25. It is great to see our pupils putting others before themselves during our 'Brighten up the Harvest' Week.

St Mary’s year 7 football team took part in a 6 aside tournament at Vida on Thursday against Aspire, Unity and South Shore. It was always going to be an uphill struggle as many of our team had not yet played competitive football !
However what they lacked in experience they made up for in effort, hard work and determination. They drew two games and lost four but never stopped chasing the ball, talking to each other and competing in every challenge. It was nice to see students absolutely shattered at the end of the tournament knowing that they had given everything.
Thanks to the two sixth formers who managed the teams and the parents that came to watch, we are all proud of what the students achieved!!
