Lathallan School, Johnshaven, is taking 23 Senior pupils to Malta this week for a competitive Netball tour of the island.

Further to the school’s recent successes reaching S2 Silver Quarter Final and S1 Gold Semi Final in the Netball School’s Cup last week. The girls are looking forward to the tour.

The tour will involve playing other school teams in Valletta, sightseeing tours of both North and South Islands, with also an opportunity to enjoy some leisure activities.

Fiona Howie, physical education teacher and tour leader, said: ”This tour is a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to widen both their playing and cultural experiences. Sports tours build strong camaraderie amongst players and an understanding of teamwork and co-operation that will enhance the life skills of all who participate.’’
