BASKETBALL TEAM UNBEATEN WINNERS
Congratulations to the Team Garlinge Basketball team who were unbeaten at this year’s Thanet Finals. They went into the competition with an amazing attitude ,taking each game as it came.
With the top 8 teams in Thanet competing, it was going to be a close competition but, with the values at the heart of every game, we played some fantastic basketball. From coming from 1-0 down to draw with Upton, to beating St Josephs who had beaten us in the previous competition, it was a stunning all round performance.
Team Garlinge will now go on to represent all Thanet Schools at this year’s Kent School Games finals.
Well done to everyone who took part and for showing real team spirit and great aspiration.

The boys played four matches, winning each of the games convincingly and also demonstrating the school values and good sportsmanship. Leon took home the ‘Star Player’ award for his hardworking attitude and superb performances.
A number of boys from years 5/6 continued to represent the school admirably in the Les Riggs Cup, consistently demonstrating great teamwork and togetherness. They navigated their way to the Quarter-Finals, beating Drapers Mills and Bromstone before losing narrowly 2:1 to Upton in what was a fantastic and hugely competitive performance.

Well done to the 3/4 team who finished 5th overall with the girls’ team finishing a grand 4th place.

Margate Mascot Experience
On Saturday 24th November, twelve lucky children from years 4, 5 and 6 were mascots for the Margate FC vs Bishop’s Stortford match.
The experience provided the children with the opportunity to: play on the 4G pitches before the game; welcome both teams onto the pitch at the start of the match; play the role of ball boys and girls during the game itself and step onto the pitch at half-time for a penalty shoot-out. The children had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - despite seeing the home team lose the match 4:1!
