On the 28th of November, 5 schools; AHS, Brae High School, Aith Junior High School, Sandwick Junior High School and Baltasound Junior High School all gathered at the Scalloway games hall to compete in the S2 Inter Schools Badminton Competition.
Representing AHS were Artur Vavilovs, James Smith, Keegan Brown, Ruth Anderson, Emily Gifford and Gracie Gowans Little.
For the girls, Ruth came first beating Eva Clark from Aith in the final 21-18. For the boys James came first beating Keegan in the final 21-16, 21-11. AHS also won the team trophy for having the highest average points per game over the day.
The first and second place boys and girls will go onto Perth in March next year to play in the Scottish Schools Badminton competition. We wish Keegan, Ruth, James and Eva from Aith good luck.
S3 pupils who have chosen P.E. as a subject, took part in a Volleyball event where there were 20 teams of 4. Matches were played on a badminton court size court and round robin format was used. Lots of games were played and our pupils demonstrated some excellent volleyball skills. Results:
The 60/40 hosted an entertaining game of football as Mid Yell JHS visited the Anderson High School on Friday the 9th of November. The teams played a very competitive first half with plenty of chances at both ends. The deadlock was finally broken just before half time by AHS forward Marta Leslie. In the second half, both teams continued to work hard but the AHS slowly started to create more chances against a young but determined Mid Yell side. The AHS scored six more times in the second half through Tash Matoba (2), Tegan Hendren (2), Lois Philips and Kayla Shearer to make the final score 7-0. Both teams should be commended on the effort, ability and determination displayed throughout the match. A special thanks to referee Ross Nicholson who did an excellent job overseeing a game played in a very sporting manner.
Anderson High School had the pleasure of welcoming the Scottish Rugby Union into school last Friday as part of their tour around the country with the Calcutta Cup. Chris Patterson, ex player and current leading points scorer for Scotland accompanied the cup. Two of our S3 P.E. classes experienced a coaching session with Chris on Friday afternoon and had a great session. Our thanks go to Active Schools for organising the visit and supporting the sessions that were held.
Another great sports day today with our S3 pupils having their opportunity to shine in athletics. The scores were very close again between the teams, with Hermaness coming out on top. Individual winners are also listed below. Special mention to Isla Murphy and Kara Sharp who won 3 events apiece. Luke Jackson also managed to win 3 individual events. Well done to all who took part.
What a great day today with our S2 sports day. Unfortunately we were not blessed with some of the fine weather we have been having lately however, the day was still a great success. There were some excellent individual results as well as collective efforts from our four house teams which were resurrected from previous years – Hermaness, Noss, Fitful and Ronas. Photos below of the winning team and individual winners.
