Fair Oak entered two teams into a mixed netball tournament involving local schools held at Wyvern. The participating teams were split into two pools with the winners playing each other in a final to deicide the overall winners. Both of our teams played superbly with some quick skilful netball on display but after all of the group matches had been played, the two teams that made it through to the final were Fair Oak A and Durley. In the final, Fair Oak A dominated right from the start and ran out comfortable winners by a score line of four goals to nil. Well done to all of our players from both our A and B teams for playing brilliantly throughout!

Durley girls were our visitors today for a football friendly game. Despite the blustery conditions Fair Oak had much the better of the first half and were much stronger on the ball than their opposition. A great run from midfield and a composed shot gave Fair Oak a one nil lead at the interval. In the second half the Fair Oak dominance continued but our girls could not find the second goal that their good play deserved. The match ended in victory for Fair Oak. Well played girls.

Wildern School hosted a girls football qualifying tournament for the Hampshire School Games today which is an extremely prestigious competition which will take place on Friday 19th July in Aldershot. Only the winning team would get to represent our area so the stakes were high! Fair Oak began their campaign with a solid one nil victory over Freegrounds and followed that up with a nil nil draw with St James despite dominating the match. Next up were Botley who were beaten by our girls by a goal to nil. Our final match was against a very good Berrywood side and again, the game ended goalless. That left a nervy wait to see if other results would go our way but after the rest of the games had been completed, the Fair Oak girls discovered that they had won the competition by a single point! What a fantastic result from our girls who now go into the Hampshire Games having not conceded a goal during the whole of their qualifying tournament!
One of our Year 6 pupils had previously qualified for the Eastleigh and Winchester District Cross Country Team qualifying race in which only the very best runners in the area from Years 6 and 7 compete. Our athlete ran superbly in a really tough field and finished a highly respectable 53rd which was well inside the top third of runners. Well done and keep up the hard work!

Fair Oak took an inexperienced team to play a girls football friendly match away to Colden Common. Despite being up against some strong opposition, our Fair Oak girls played well and battled hard but ultimately lost a closely contested match by a score line of two goals to nil. A great effort by all of the girls who took part.

Our boys football team played a home friendly match against Herne Junior School in preparation for our upcoming Hampshire Cup semi-final. The game was played at a frantic pace on a rather hard bobbly surface which did not allow the home team to get into their usual flowing style of football. As a result, the match was a rather close affair but in the end Fair Oak ran out one nil winners. Well done to our boys who go into the semi-final with a solid win behind them.

Netley Abbey travelled to Fair Oak for the much anticipated boys Hampshire Cup semi-final. Both teams had been eagerly awaiting this extremely important fixture. The match began with Fair Oak on the back foot and Netley Abbey doing most of the early attacking. However, our boys soon got into their stride and began to take control of the match. This was bad news for the visitors who soon began to leak goals. At the half time interval Fair Oak were leading by two goals to nil. In the second half the home team continued to press our visitors allowing them no time on the ball and imposing our strong passing game on our opponents. This pressure lead to more goals and by the end of the match the score stood at five nil to Fair Oak! Well done to our boys who have set up a mouth-watering final with Lyndhurst of Portsmouth.

Our annual Invitation Cross Country Relay Race took place here at Fair Oak Junior School. 16 schools participated in the event with over 400 runners in total competing. Our school entered two teams in three of the four races that took place and one team in the other. Our lower school girls ran really well but unfortunately finished outside the top three positions. However, our lower school boys, upper school girls and upper school boys A teams all won of their races which is a quite magnificent achievement considering the number of other competitors they were up against. Brilliant running by all of those pupils who participated!
Our tag rugby team were entered into a local area tournament which took place at Toynbee School. They had been attending development sessions previously to really fine tune their skills so that they were ready for the competition. This hard preparation worked showed in the morning pool in which Fair Oak were placed. Our team did superbly, winning three matches and drawing one. Despite going unbeaten in the group we were just pipped to first place by Knightwood who had the same results as Fair Oak but had scored more tries. This meant that we were placed into the second pool for the afternoon matches along with all of the other morning group runners up. The competition here was extremely fierce. After a promising two all opening draw with Berrywood, Fair Oak found the going tough and lost closely in each of their next three matches. This meant that overall Fair Oak finished in tenth place out of a field of twenty six. Well done to all of the athletes who took part.
