Primary school lacrosse day

Primary and preparatory school pupils from Dormer House, Airthrie, Rodmarton, Sherborne Primary and Christchurch School enjoyed a day of lacrosse on Field.

This was a new sport to many pupils and they all went away having learnt new skills. The tournament in the afternoon was great fun and they all want to come again next year.
