LLG Basketball Tournament

Some children from Year 5 and 6 went to Golborne High School yesterday to take part in a basket ball tournament. Coby-Leigh from year 5 has written a report about the tournament:

‘Yesterday at the basketball tournament, we did a fantastic job representing our school. It was intense between a few teams but we enjoyed having the chance to play against other schools. We took part in this tournament to raise the profile of basketball as not many people play it in our country. We were very proud to finish 4th place.’
