Did you know that James Naismith, a physical education instructor born in Canada invented basketball in 1891?
English, French and Physical Education departments held two sponsored basketball sessions last Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th May.
The activity took place during break time and consisted of shooting to the basket for one minute. Each basket counted as one point and each point counted as agreed with the sponsor.
The sponsor will pay the agreed amount for each shoot made.
The total amount raised by the students will remain at the school funds to aid students depending on their needs.
Luís, Anabela and Nuria will collect the money raised from Monday 27th May onwards.
