Grade 3 hockey festival at Roedean
The Grade 3 hockey teams participated in a late afternoon, early evening festival on Wednesday 24 July at Roedean. St Mary’s had four teams and each team played three matches against various schools. The girls were so excited to play matches at night because it was the first time many of them played under flood lights. They all did exceptionally well and had a lot of fun despite the cold weather.
