Three year 9 students went to the University of York yesterday for a Languages Taster Day and prize-giving event, having taken part in the Tour De France Virtuel competition for the past 10 weeks. They had to display teamwork skills and work to deadlines in order to answer a variety of reflective, research and creative questions in French, based on the Tour de France. They spent the morning learning Mandarin Chinese in an art workshop and Italian in a digital kitchen before being narrowly beaten to first place (1 point!) in the lightening round of the quiz. Congratulations to the boys for working so hard!
The Year 7 Rugby team capped off an extremely successful year of Rugby League at St John Fisher by beating Honley with an impressive 44-0 Victory. The year 7′s have had a fantastic year reaching the semi final stage of the Yorkshire Cup and the last 8 in the national competition. They are joined by year 8, 10 and 11 who all won the Kirklees Cup this year. The year 10 team also reached the final of the Yorkshire Cup just losing out to Castleford High as well as reaching the last 16 in the country.
Not wanting to be outdone by the boys this has been an unprecedented year for girls Rugby. Years 7,8,9 and 10 all reached the Yorkshire qualification stage after winning the Kirklees competitions. The year 7′s finished 3rd in Yorkshire just missing out on the final. While the year 8 team went one better and won the Yorkshire Cup with honours being shared on the day following fantastic game and a strong second half resulting in a draw.
The Sixth Form Students from St John Fisher High School boarded the minibus to head over the Pennines to their Graduation Ceremony which this year was held in Manchester Town Hall on Wednesday 14th May.
