On Saturday 9th February Emily O, in Year 6, competed in the Independent Schools Association Fencing Competition. Having battled hard against some tough opposition, Emily went into quarter finals ranked in 4th place. In the knock out stage Emily’s opponent, who was much bigger than her, was able to block her every move, so she did not stand a chance but bravely stood her ground.
We are very proud of her perseverance and tenacity.
Other than nursing a bruised arm from a sharp blow she had a lovely day. Well done, Emily!
