WATER POLO SUCCESS Coombeshead Academy Year 11 student Heather Tomlinson and Jade Stickland, a Sixth Form student from Teign School, travelled to Blackpool recently to represent the South West in the girls’ U18 water polo team. They were taking part in the Inter Regional Championships, to defend their gold medal from last year. SPORT & PE CHRISTOW It was a great tournament with the South West beating Scotland, the North East, North West Thunder and East to come top of their group. They then beat the South East in the semi-finals and met North West Lightning in the final. At full time the score was 2-2, so it came down to penalties. Heather was selected as one of the penalty takers, and scored the winning penalty for the South West to hold onto their top spot and win Gold again! 28/02/17 http://www.swimming.org/waterpolo/south-west-retain-girlsu18-inter-regional-title-penalties/ South West win Girls' U18 Inter Regionals | Water Polo News www.swimming.org The ASA South West region defeated North West Lightning on penalties to retain their Girls' U18 Inter Regional Championship title in Blackpool.

The intention was to raise student awareness of refugees. We also participated in a Refugee Exchange Experience with Teign School when we swapped four Year 8 students for the day. They were in non-school uniform and paired up with Years 8 or 9 students in the two schools who accompanied them to their lessons for the day.
