Netball News & Which is the Fittest Class in DESS?

DESS U11 Crowned Netball Cup Champions!

What a great season of training and results from the girls. It just goes to show that hard work really does pay off!

Their commitment to training, attitude to learning and striving to succeed has shone week-in-week-out both on and off the court. They had a hard job returning from their residential camp and having a quick change into their kits to head straight to their finals tournament – suitcases and sleeping bags in tow! However, as soon as they stepped onto the court their performances were outstanding and they managed to win all their pool games against 4 schools. They therefore qualified for the Cup Final against Foremarke School and were crowned Cup Champions after a 5-2 win at full time.

We are extremely proud of the girls! Well done to every single one of them, very well deserved and a great team performance throughout the season. Training will continue after the Festive Holidays as we have BSME Netball, the NAS Cup and BSME Games to compete in 2020.

DESS U11 Youth Sevens Finalists! Thursday 5th December, 4:20pm, Court 4

The girls also recently took part in the U11 Youth Sevens Netball Competition at The Dubai Sevens Stadium. After playing all their matches in the pool stages they played a thrilling game in the semi-final against JESS Jumeirah and scored the final goal in the last 30 seconds to win 6-5. They therefore have qualified for the Finals which is to be played on Thursday 5th December v JESS Ranches at the Sevens Stadium. Their game is at 4:20pm on court 4 and we would love to have lots of supporters cheering them on from the sidelines!

Our DESC U13 Netballers have also qualified for their Finals against DC, which is to be played at 4:50pm. Again, we would love lots of supporters to this game also to support #teamDESSC! A lot of you will recognise most of this squad as they are previous students from DESS who are now in Year 8.

Lastly, the Senior Girls have two DESSC teams competing in the competition over the full weekend and we wish all players the very best of luck! Follow our progress via Twitter and Facebook.


Which is the Fittest Class in DESS?

Over the last month, children, staff and parents have been hard at work competing for the title of ‘The Fittest Class in DESS’. To win points for their class, there have been a number of challenges including half term family fitness bingo, a lapathon race and, of course, the 30minutes of fitness everyday target.

The results are now in………

A huge congratulations to 5Y who are officially the fittest class in Dubai. They will enjoy a lovely morning of fun activities in the last week of term as a prize. A big thank you to Ethan who took on the role of Fitness Champion for the class, ensuring everyone kept up with their fitness activities.

Well done also to 3B, 4R and 6G who were the fittest classes in each year group.

Thank you to everyone who put on their trainers in support of this very worthwhile event.
