Our girls table tennis team had previously qualified for the prestigious country finals tournament held at Testwood College in Totton. As usual, the standard of play between the teams was unbelievably high but our team really gave a good account of themselves. The competing teams were split into two groups with each team playing the other sides in their pool. Fair Oak began with a fixture against Springhill and won a competitive tie by five games to three. Next up were St Marys who proved too strong for the Fair Oak team and won a comprehensive victory by eight games to nil. This put Fair Oak in second position in the group and meant that they would play off for third place against the other group runners up, Horndean. In another very tight tie, Horndean just go the better of our girls, winning by a scoreline of five games to three. These results mean that Fair Oak finished in fourth place in the county which is a fantastic achievement! Well done to all of our fabulous players.

Hamble College was again the venue for an indoor athletics event, this time between year three and four pupils from local schools. Just as in the upper school competition last month, athletes scored points depending on how well they did in their track and field events and these points were collated to give an overall team total. The boys and girls points were then added together to give a school total. When our competitors had finished their events and the calculating was completed, Fair Oak ended up in third place! Well done to all of our participating pupils.
