Football Team - Gosport League
19th December 2017 - Leesland v Elson
Last game of the year 2017 - our boys suffered a 6-0 defeat against Elson Juniors. However, they played with enthusiasm and enjoyment, giving it their all until the very last second. They even stayed behind to help take down the goals! Well done boys, you did Leesland proud with your positive attitudes.

We played a netball game called Golden Child. We played with other schools and we had a great time. We got tips on how to play better at shooting.
Q and A
We had a question and answer it,e with a professional net baller named Kelly. She had a great sense of humour and gave us great answers to the questions we asked her. Here are some of the questions we asked her:
When you were younger, did you play a range of different sports?
What did you do before netball?
Have you always liked sports?
What do you eat before a match?
What position do you prefer to play?
We went into a large room and played lots of games to improve our speed, concentration and agility. One of the games we played was called volcanoes and craters. All of the games we played were great fun and are good for keeping fit.
Tour of the grounds
To end the day, we went on a guided tour of the stadium and grounds. On the tour, we saw the Hilton Hotel and got the chance to have our photo taken in front of the cricket pitch. After the tour, there was a presentation where they thanked us for coming and gave out some awards based on the school games values of determination, respect, honesty, self belief, passion and team work.
