Last week parents and staff came together to have a friendly football match after school.  In the words of Ms. Nwaneri here's what happened:


Despite both teams starting strongly, the school staff rammed home two shots before half time through skilful passing. Frustrated, the parents came into the second half hungry and keen to make their mark. After a number of powerful shots and attempts that were disappointingly off target, the parents were thanking their lucky stars when they pulled back a goal. Soon after, the staff conceded a second goal, the equaliser. Both sides attacked fiercely keen to get the winner but with a solid line up at the back and sterling goalkeeping on both sides, neither team could get the winning goal. With both teams neck and neck at full time, the game was decided on penalties. Fans had their hearts in their mouths,  tormented by save after save and missed shot after missed shot. Finally, cool and collected, a dad sneaked the ball into the bottom right corner, gaining the parents success at last.

'Man' of the match: Jessie (the parents goal keeper)  and Mrs Anunobi (staff goal keeper)
