On Friday 24th February Highfield were pleased to host an inaugural hockey festival at Braywick Sports Ground.
Year 2 pupils from Burchetts Green School joined girls from Year 6 for an afternoon of fun and sporting experience for all.
The afternoon included a basic skills training session, provided by our Head of P.E, and England Senior Hockey Team Player, Ruth Young; as well as coaching from our excellent Year 6 Hockey Team. The festival was rounded off with a mini hockey tournament and then refreshments and awards presentation back at Highfield Prep.
Ruth Young commented “It was a great event and wonderful to be able to pass on our sporting skills to future generations. There are definitely a few budding hockey players at Burchetts Green. We look forward to welcoming them back soon.”
