Summer Term 1976


The athletic teams trained hard thoughout the summer term and they were rewarded for their efforts on the day of the Bournemouth Town Sports. The first year team were placed 3rd overall out of all the Bournemouth Schools with Sarah Luke reaching the finals of the hurdles; Dawn Luther the finals of the 800 metres; and Helen Raven the finals of the 200 metres.

The under 15 team had good individual results: Caroline Broughton came first in the Discus, breaking the record for that age group; Wendy Dade and Azuka Onourah came 3rd in the Long Jump and High jump finals respectively.


Taking advantage of our recently resurfaced courts at school, the tennis teams were able to put their practising to good use and had quite a successful season, beating Avonbourne, Bournemouth School for Girls, and Parkstone Grammar and losing to Talbot Heath.

Tennis Teams

First VI: S. Tolhurst and A. Wright; L. Dry and L. Sheehan; T. De Souza and J. Cavanagh; C. Callaghan and L. Arblaster.

U/15 VI: S. Hayes and A. Dry; K. Green and C. McGargle; C. Henderson and H. Davies, C. McAuley and K. Doolan.

U/14 VI: S. Hayes and A. Dry; L. Cristofoli and H. Kohanskij P. Hill and W. Dade.


The Convent U/16 Team came 3rd in the individual medley of the Bournemouth Swimming Association Team races - a considerable achievement for such a young team.

Due to the bad weather, the netball teams have not had many fixtures this year. At the Bournemouth Schools Netball Tournament the 1st, 2nd and 3rd years did well. The 2nd and 3rd year teams both came second in their sections and the 1st years came 4th.

In the Knock-Out Cup, Senior A and Inter A got through to the second and 3rd rounds respectively whilst the Inter B were beaten in the first round. We wish the 3 teams luck who are entering the Bournemouth Schools and District Netball Tournament due to take place Monday 28th March.
