Rose Hill's first Basketball team
This week we took part in our first ever basketball match. A squad made up of boys and girls from year 6-8 hosted a triangular match versus Uplands and Solefields. The pupils were understandably nervous as they have only been playing since half-term. Our pupils soon settled into the game and realised they were more than a match for the opposition. Excellent all-round team play saw Rose Hill pip Uplands to the post with and 18-16 victory. It was straight back onto court for our second match, this time against Solefields. Solefields are a well-established team and have entered the IAPS national competition for a number of years. We did really well and narrowly lost the match by two baskets, 22-18.
Well done to all our players, you all contributed to the success we had.

On Thursday, 9 November Year 7 went on an Art trip to the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne. After a bus journey to Eastbourne College we had a delicious lunch in their canteen. We then walked a short distance to the Towner Gallery which is located right next to the College. It wasn’t hard to miss as there was an amazing mural painted on the side of the building, in all sorts of shapes and colours, celebrating the Towner’s 10th Anniversary.
