2017 Netball Champions       

On Tuesday 9th May our Grove Wood girls netball team travelled to Glebe Primary for the final game of the season. The girls played exceptionally with their quality  shining from the first few seconds of the game right up until the final whistle. Everyone played a part with Mia and Amelia sinking some brilliant goals to get us an early lead. Rachel intercepting lots of passes and getting possession back. Chloe finding space and showing great movement. Connie and Megan showing great teamwork in the circle when shooting and both adding to the score and finally our captain Katie who played superbly, defended well and kept the team focused. It was an emphatic win with Grove Wood scoring 20 goals to Glebe's 1. The Grove Wood girls team are the League Champions for 2017 and have gone the whole season undefeated in the girls league. We couldn't be prouder! Congratulations! Thank you to all the parents/carers for your continued support throughout the season.

Year 6 Netball Match 

Grove Wood VS Great Wakering

Score: 3-9

On the 12TH of October 2016 the Year 6 Grove Wood Netball Team played Great Wakering. On the team was 7 people who switched positions each match. These people were: Lottie Roy, Evie Sharp, Emma Jolley, Bella Dalton, Ruby Reade, Anastasia Campbell and Jessica Tilbrook. Each player played really well and made Grove proud. At one point, the ball was rolling around the floor and no one could pick it up!

In the first quarter the total was 0-0 although both teams were very strong. Quarter 2 was very different! With the first goal of the whole match, scored by Ruby, Grove was winning! However Great Wakering wouldn’t lose that easy and managed to score 2 goals! Even though Great Wakering were already winning, they kept playing well and so did we! Once the second match was over, each player swapped positions. The game started and it wasn’t going well! Great Wakering scored a huge 5 goals in only 6 minutes. Grove scored 2 goals, bringing the total score to 2 – 7 to Great Wakering. Everyone knew, if we wanted to even have a chance of winning we had to work our socks off!  We did! But we lost! With a total score of 9 – 3 Great Wakering won. At the end everyone congratulated each other and ate biscuits. Each Grove pupil made the most of free food and had about 4 hobnobs!
