En Garde!

It was a real privilege to watch our children take part in a Fencing Competition tonight. Children from Kilburn and Smalley joined together to put the skills they have learned at Fencing Club into practice. 

The children demonstrated a huge amount of skill and sportsmanship which was great to see. 

The competition was incredibly close but Kilburn pipped Smalley to the title and have a lovely cup to display in school.

There was a great turnout from parents and grandparents and everyone had a fantastic time. Thank you all for your support.

Thanks also to Premier Sport for organising the event.
