Selsted School’s outstanding performance at the Shepway Schools Basketball Tournament last year saw them winning Gold medal position, & being forwarded to represent Shepway District at the Kent Schools Games in Medway.
With 14 teams & 6 tough qualifying matches against Medway, Tunbridge Wells, Canterbury City, Thanet, Maidstone & Mid Kent & Dover, Shepway performed well managing 2 wins & 4 losses which placed them in the playoff against Dartford. This was a close fought exciting match - result:- Shepway 3 Dartford 4, giving them a creditable 10th place overall.
The highlight of the event had to be the presence of Andrew Bridge - British & Commonwealth Basketball player - who came along to open the event & present the medals. During the matches Andrew took time to meet each team, give an inspirational talk & answer questions.
Team Captain George Heath said ‘We all got to hold his Bronze Medal won at the Commonwealth Games. The medal was broken after he came back home, but he told us he hadn’t had it repaired because although it wasn’t perfect, it was still special because he’d done his best to win it. He said even if our matches didn’t go perfectly, we should still be proud we had represented our school & district at the Games.’

Another wonderful evening was spent with members of the school singing carols to the accompaniment of the Snowdown Colliery Band.
At the end, children were invited to learn an instrument by joining the Shepway Brass Academy to be held on Saturdays in the New Year and conducted by Snowdown Colliery Bands very own conductor Christer Aberg
In early December children, staff and parents from Selsted School travelled to London to attend a performance of Tchaikovsks`s Nutcracker Suite at the Royal Opera House
In spite of a long day for travel either way, children were transfixed by the dancing, costumes and set portraying Winter and Christmas scenes. Everyone also had the opportunity to meet with the dancers from the ballet itself. It was a wonderful experience for all.
Once again, after school, families were able to get in the festive spirit and participate in the School Christmas Fair.
Stalls, lit up with Christmas tree lights had, games to play, things to make and presents to buy or win. Even the choir sang Christmas songs to set the scene for the approaching holiday.
