Students from the Prep School F3 to the Senior School 5th Form attended an elite international netball match at The Copper Box at the Olympic Park. The match was between the England Roses and the Malawi Queens - England are ranked 3rd in the world and Malawi 6th. The students thoroughly enjoyed a spectacular front row view of the match - we were extremely close to the goal meaning an optimum view of the shots. The England team were dominant throughout and comfortably won 66-60.
The St. John’s students cheered on England and featured on Sky showing their support! Five of our Senior School students were lucky enough to be selected to be the ball girls for the match, they were very professional in this role and showed speed when returning the balls that went out of court. This was an exciting evening and a great experience for the students to watch highly skilled women playing sport live, particularly a sport that our students play regularly.
