West Buckland hosted 30 pupils for a day's hockey on a newly laid astro pitch last week. Coach, Mr Rudge along with support from students, Harry Sampson, James Tyson and parent, Mr Lansley ran the session covering a number of skills including Hockey Golf, the Tennis Ball Challenge and some small-sided games. Due to its success, Mr Rudge will be looking at other opportunities to organise camps in the future.

Pupils have also been training as part of the Devon Development Centre at Kingsley School with  Year 5 and 6  players progressing to represent North Devon and Exeter at the South West Games. Megan Thomas, Etta Vipond, Luke Stapleton, Isaac Worthington, Archie Shawcross and Sandy Carrick all took part with brilliant performances resulting in the girls coming away with the gold and the boys, the bronze. Congratulations to Luke Stapleton, who was selected to compete in the Year 7 World Cup event and gained nomination for County selection on the 23rd September.
