16 children attended an event at Raglan School to explain to Public Health Enfield about the benefits of The Daily Mile. They also played football with some Tottenham coaches, met an Olympian athlete and tried many other sports.​

Gaelic Football – July 2019

We have been very lucky this year – Gavin, an experienced coach, has worked with years 4, 5 and 6 over the last few months. The children have loved learning a new sport that require different skills. Lots of our children then went on to play and were very successful in Gaelic football tournaments in Greenford, home to the GAA.

Middlesex Cricket Taster Day – Wednesday 12th June 2019

We were very fortunate to have 7 professional coaches from Middlesex Cricket Club visit our school and train the pupils in Years 3 – 5. The children learnt cricket skills and thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. Let’s hope it will inspire them to play more cricket in the future!

Years 5 and 6 Music Assembly – Thursday 6th June 2019

On Thursday Years 5 and 6 performed music compositions that they had been working on in class. Year 5’s work was based on “Mars” from the Planet Suite by Gustav Holst. They had also listened to “Clair de Lune” by Debussy and one group chose to show their work on that piece. Year 6 have been studying “In the Hall of the Mountain King” by Edvard Greig and had composed their own versions. It was lovely to hear their pieces and see how well they worked together in small groups. ​

Vitality Mile – 26th May 2019

Five of our Year 5 pupils took part in the Vitality Mile outside Buckingham Palace. Over 300 students took part. St Monica’s are so proud as all our boys finished in the top 15. The boys trained really hard and they loved having the opportunity to run down The Mall. Well done!
