Matches & Competitions

Copthall Athletics Competition

Holly Park took part in the annual Barnet Schools Athletics event held at Stone X Stadium. Our children showed exemplary sportsmanship and behaviour both on and off the track. There were many outstanding performances across the track, field and relay events. Particular well done to the Year 6 girls and boys relay teams who were excellent and won their events. Well done to Isabelle in Year 6 who won the 400m race. Huge thanks to Mr Carini, Mr Bourne and Miss Yianakki who trained the children.

Tag Rugby Club Tournament

Our new Tag Rugby club is going very well indeed. Three teams from Holly Park entered the Active Sports All Valley Tag Rugby Tournament which took place at Saracens ARFC. Each team played four games and the coaches were incredibly impressed with the skill and ability shown from a group that have only been playing tag rugby for half a term! The next tournament will take place in July and we fully expect to see more of the same from these wonderful players. Congratulations to the Holly Park Fizzers, Holly Park Movers and Holly Park Shakers and thank you to the families for your support.

Barnet Dance Festival

Some of our Y6 children represented the school so well at the annual Barnet Dance festival at The Arts Depot. It was an amazing opportunity to perform in a proper theatre, on a stage in front of an audience of 500 people. Approximately 70 Barnet school take part across several nights with over 1,000 children participating. Holly Park danced a rock and roll number with energy and enjoyment. They have been practicing for several weeks and were very excited to participate. Huge thanks and congratulations to Miss Yiannaki who has been rehearsing them at lunchtimes and always has very high standards for the children to meet. Thank you to Mr Bourne who supported Miss Yiannaki with the rehearsals and performance.

Football Tournament Success

Our girls football team took part in the Barnet Girls Football Tournament. This was the first match this academic year for this new team. On the day and prior to the group stages the team played two friendly matches winning both by a significant margin. They then played their three group matches – winning all the games to progress to the semifinals as group winners.

In the semi-final they played a very good Danegrove side. There were chances at both ends with Holly Park slightly the better of the two teams. With the score at 0-0 at full time it went to the dreaded penalty shootout. Goalkeeper Ellena saved two penalties with Holly Park scoring two to take us to the final against Martin. The final was also a very tight game but was won by Martin 1-0 with a blistering shot from distance. This was the only goal conceded by the team all day. A magnificent effort by all of the players to finish as well-deserved runners up in the competition.

This is clearly a team with lots of promise! As you can see from the pictures the girls looked great in their brand new kit which was kindly paid for by the PTA.

Particular well done to the Year 5 and 6 boys relay teams who were excellent. Well done to Isabelle in Year 5 who won the 400m race easily. Well done to Raf in Year 6 who won the high jump event. Huge thanks to Mr Carini, Mr Bourne and Miss Yianakki who trained the children.

The Barnet Inter School Cross Country Competition

The Barnet Primary School cross country competition takes place twice during the year – with an Autumn and a Spring heat. The scores for both heats are added together to get a final score. Our team of Year 4, 5 and 6 children practiced hard and were supported by Mr Bourne and Mr Carini. The competitions took part at Oakhill Park and the course was 1 mile long. Everyone tried their best and persevered across the course. There was a standout performance by Isabelle H in Year 5 who won a medal. I am delighted to tell you that Holly Park came first and were the winners of the Barnet Primary School Cross Country Competition. Congratulations to everyone involved.
