The Holly Park girls’ football team took part in two competitions over the last few weeks and displayed some fantastic footballing talent. The girls played in the Barnet East tournament, winning the whole tournament without conceding a goal! They then progressed to the Barnet East finals and were unlucky to lose in the quarter finals on penalties. Huge congratulations to the girls who still have an opportunity of silverware in the other league and cup competitions.
On Thursday 18th October Holly Park took part in the first Cross Country race of the season. In warm and sunny conditions all the runners performed really well , showing great determination to complete the 1500m course.
There were some stand out performances from Melissa T (5th in Year 6 girls race), Amarion (2nd in Year 5 boys race) and most notable of all Leila T (1st in Year 4 girls race).
We await the overall results from the day before we head into the second race in the New Year.
Well done to all the runners.

Year 2 and 3 girls took part in a Borough tournament on Friday 25th May. The girls all performed excellently and scored many fine goals. Well done to all the girls taking part.
Holly Park took part in the Barnet Schools Gymnastics competition. The competition has only very limited places and orginally Holly Park was not one of the schools scheduled to compete. However another school dropped out and Holly Park were invited to take part, last week!
The children and Ms Kelly have worked so hard for the 5 days they had to learn and practice their routines.
The children all performed stunningly well and made Ms Kelly extremely proud.
The year 5 children came 8th overall in an extremely tough competition and were only a couple of points away from the medals
The year 3 and 4 children produced amazing performances and came 2nd overall.
The year 2 children – in what was a remarkable achievement – came 1st and became Borough champions.
Considering the short amount of time the children had to prepare, all the children did amazingly well. The year 5 children were great in assisting their younger team mates and of course special thanks must go to Ms Kelly for training a team in such a short period of time and leading them to such great success.
Our Cross Country team has again proved to be the best in the borough beating all other schools in the second event of the year and coming top in the combined event.
One of the organisers said: “The students did fantastic making it to the finish line and showed great determination, the course was extremely muddy and boggy in areas which made it quite challenging. Well done to all that took part.”
Well done to Evie Y6 and Amarion Y4 for coming first in their races.
The overall results from the two combined events were as follows (the least points wins):
1st Holly Park 311
2nd Akiva 331
3rd Osidge 430
4th Kerem 527
5th Martin 528
The netball team took part in a tournament and missed the semi finals by one point. Coach Mrs Casey said they played exceptionally well and still have league games to play.
On Tuesday 17th October Holly Park take part in the first Cross Country Event of the year.
From the beginning the children showed incredible determination and effort, and there were so many fantastic performances that it is impossible to mention everyone individually. Special mention goes to Amarion who came 2nd in the Year 4 Boys race and Evie who came 1st in the year 6 girls race. Both Evie and Freya from Year 6 have been selected to represent Barnet in the upcoming London Youth Games.
Once all the results were in and added up the standings showed that Holly Park are currently in First place out of 36 schools.
The second race in the competition takes place in March next year.
Well done to everyone involved.
