On Sunday 29th January, St. Peter’s took part in the Hoops 4 Health Basketball final at half time during the Cheshire Phoenix Basketball match. They played against King’s School, Chester and equipped themselves extremely well taking the lead in the match with some superb play and a great shot. However, King’s had the advantage of height (with one of their players nearly as tall as the proper players) and they slowly came back into the game. They scored two baskets and with only a few seconds left it was too late for St. Peter’s to reply. All the children demonstrated skill and sportsmanship and they were a real credit to the school.
Thank you to all the support from friends and family – it was a wonderful experience and the children made us all very proud.
