Canterbury Duathlon

On Monday a team of year 5/6 children represented St Albans School at the Canterbury Primary Schools’ Duathlon held at Ruapuna Speedway.

Cricket Semi Finals

Last week both of our girls cricket team played in semi finals.

The Blue Team had a win (by approx 100 runs) against Roydvale, cementing their place in the final after a season of very convincing wins.

The White Team played Russley, the school that beat the White Team in the 2017 semi finals by 2 runs. This year however, the result went in our favour, with St Albans winning by 12 runs. Below is the White Team after their win.

The All-St-Albans final will take place on Wednesday 11th April at 1pm at St Albans.
