Freegrounds Junior School brought their boys football A team to play our A team in a friendly in preparation for our upcoming Hampshire Cup quarter final. Fair Oak performed brilliantly throughout the match and at times played some quite breath taking football despite a rather heavy pitch. The goals flowed for the home side and at half time the score stood at 8-0 to Fair Oak. The dominance continued from our boys in the second half with the final score a resounding 11-0 win. Well done to each of the players involved.

Two boys and two girls were entered into a qualifying tournament for the County Individual Table Tennis Finals which are to be held at Testwood College in February. This qualifying tournament took place at Wildern School and involved schools from throughout the Hamble area. Competitors were split into different groups with the top two from each group going through to knockout stages. Both of the Fair Oak boys won their groups and so made it through. One of our girls finished second and so joined the boys but unfortunately our second female competitor finished third and so just missed out on the next stage. In the knockouts the Fair Oak pupils did superbly. Our boys finished first and second overall and so have now qualified for the county finals while our Fair Oak girl finished a very creditable fourth overall. Well done!

Fair Oak entered four mixed teams into a basketball tournament between local schools which was held in Wyvern sports hall. The standard of play was high throughout from all of the competitors. For many of the Fair Oak pupils this was their very first basketball tournament but each and every one of them acquitted themselves superbly. The teams were split into two groups. The winners of each group then played each other in a final and the second placed teams played against each other for third place. Fair Oak Reds won their group and went on to win the final comfortably. Although our other teams did not make it through to the play off matches, Mr Stredwick was extremely pleased with all of our competitors.

The Fair Oak boys football A team made it through to the Hampshire Cup semi final with a fine six nil win against Oakley. The score line could have been even more emphatic but for some excellent shot stopping from the visiting keeper. The pitch was rather cut up due to the recent cold, wet weather but our team still managed to pass the ball about which was very pleasing to see. Well done boys for another great win!
Swanmore College was the venue for an indoor athletics event between schools from our local area. Fair Oak entered both a boys and a girls team. Competitors 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 athletes had finished their events and the calculating was completed, Fair Oak ended up in second place overall. What a great result, especially as this was the first school athletics event that some members of our team had entered.

Stoke Park hosted a hockey competition open to year 3 and 4 pupils. Fair Oak entered two teams into this event and both did very well indeed. Initially all of the teams involved were split into two groups with the winners of each group playing each other in a final to decide the overall winning team and the runners up from each group playing each other to decide who would finish in third place. Fair Oak A won their group with three wins from three matches. Firstly Upham were beaten four nil followed by Durley by a score of two goals to one. Finally the A team beat Stoke Park four one. Fair Oak B also won their group with a one hundred percent record. They beat Upham two one, Durley two nil and Stoke Park four nil. This meant that both of our teams reached the final. In a close game in which our B team took the lead, the eventual score ended in favour of our A team by three goals to one. What a brilliant result for both of our teams!
