Sport
Our girls and boys did very well in the tennis and double wicket cricket tournaments played at Murray MacDougall School last Friday, considering that we had grade fours and fives playing with the seniors.  The girls came 4th and the boys came 5th out of nine participating schools.  Well done!!!
The colts played against the Development Side here at Kyle Prep on Wednesday afternoon and lost by 21 runs. 

Yours sincerely
