A year 4/5 handball team was entered a festival held today at Wildern School. Ten schools from the local area participated in the event which gave all of the pupils an opportunity to improve their skills in the sport. Fair Oak played really well in their fixtures but lost close matches to Wellstead, Berrywood and Durley. However, our team performed brilliantly to beat Bursledon comprehensively. Well done to all of those who took part!

The Fair Oak boys football team travelled to Princes Mead school in Kings Worthy to play their next match in the Hampshire Cup today. Princes Mead have been performing well this year, scoring lots of goals in the process so our boys knew they would be in for a tough match. In a close encounter with chances for both sides, it was Fair Oak who finished one of theirs in the second half to win the match by that single goal to nil. Well done boys. We look forward to hearing our opponents for the next round.

Today our ‘Bling Your Bike Day’ winners travelled to Winchester to complete a seven mile bike ride. The route included both technical downhill riding as well some tough uphill sections. The pupils all really enjoyed the day despite being rather tired at the end of it!

Blackfield visited today to play our girls football team in the second round of the Hampshire Cup. Our girls knew that they would be in for a tough afternoon right from kick off as Blackfield played some very sharp incisive football, racing into an early lead. The visitors continued to dominate the first half and at half time the score stood at five nil. In the second half, Fair Oak battled hard and were unlucky to concede one more goal to leave the final score at six nil to Blackfield. Well done to our girls who never gave up right to the final whistle.

Wildern school today hosted a qualifying tournament for the Table Tennis Individual County Finals event which will be held later in the school year. Fair Oak entered seven boys and four girls into the competition which took a league format with each player playing every athlete in their group. The winners of each group would then progress into the semi-finals. Despite some fantastic performances from our players, after all of the group fixtures had been played, only one of our boys made it through to the semi-finals where he lost narrowly to a player from Botley. Mr Stredwick was really pleased with all of our athletes who did the school proud, showing fantastic sportsmanship throughout!

Swanmore visited Fair Oak today to play an upper school friendly tag rugby match. The first half was a tight affair with some quite breath-taking rugby played from both sides. At the half time whistle, it was Fair Oak who led by eighteen tries to fifteen. In the second half, the home side began to take control and build up a healthier gap and at the end of the match, Fair Oak were ten tries ahead, forty-two to thirty-two. Well done to all those involved – what a fantastic team performance!

Our boys 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 extremely 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 Marchwood which ended four all. The match was decided by totalling up all of the points players in each team had amassed and unfortunately, Marchwood just pipped Fair Oak 287 to 268. Next up were St Bedes and Fair Oak put in a convincing display to win five three which meant that they finished second in their group and would play Horndean, the other group runners up, to see who would finish in third place overall. In a tight match it was Horndean who ran out winners by five games to three. This result meant 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 the venue for an indoor athletics event between year five and six pupils from local schools. 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 first place! The final standings were as follows:
1. Fair Oak - 233
2. Freegrounds - 210
3. Netley - 191
4. Berrywood - 181
5. Wellstead - 180
6. Botley - 152
7. Hamble - 145
8. Upham - 139
What a great effort from all of our athletes.
