    Mathilde 9C

    How fabulous that Mathilde 9C has once again been recognised for her achievements in hockey! Last year we featured Mathilde in our November Friday News when she was awarded a Hackney Council Sports Silver award for her achievements; this year Mathilde has been awarded a Hackney Council Sports Silver award for her contribution to hockey. 

    She will receive a cash sum to pay for hockey equipment and free membership of a local sports centre. Well done Mathilde!
