  • Year 7 Boys are Borough Champions in Football!

    Published 11/05/17

    On Tuesday 2nd May 2017, Year 7 faced Haydon School in the Hillingdon Cup Final for Football. We had already played Haydon earlier in the season and lost, so we knew we would be in for an extremely tough game. The first half was very even with both sides having chances to score, but the score stayed at 0-0. The score line gave Douay great confidence to up the tempo in the second half and two great individual goals from Nunu and Ellisha gave us a 2-0 lead, however this was not to last long. Haydon as expected fought back into the game and drew level meaning the score was now 2-2. A couple of attack minded substitutions from Douay allowed us to gain the lead again through Richard and with the help of our goalkeeper Alfie, we were able to see out the victory.

    Well done to all involved and thank you to the parents and Mr Corish who were in attendance to watch a fantastic victory.

    News article by By Naiya Adrien and Sore Ogunmoyero: 10R

    Recently a selected bunch of our hardworking school ambassadors, accompanied by Miss Brazier and Miss Meade, had the honour of going to an event called We Day. We Day is  a day jam-packed with excitement, inspiration and the motivation to make a difference in our communities, homes and schools. Schools from all over Britain gathered to celebrate all of our achievements as Ambassadors and as students. It is the kind of event where your ticket cannot be bought, but instead must be earned. Because of the great work done by our school’s ambassadors we were rewarded with 14 tickets. Throughout the day there was never a dull moment; appearances from singers such as Jessie J and Conor Maynard, also stimulating speeches and works of encouragement from speakers such as Paula Abdul and a former refugee Muzoon Al-Mellehan and many many more. Older students from many different schools even went the extra mile and volunteered to do some charity work in India for year clearly proving that a small change can make a big difference. As the day came to an end our school’s ambassadors were filled with ideas and were driven to want to tackle more problems within our school

  • Netball Success

    Published 04/04/17

    The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School recently got through to the Netball Borough Finals. The Year 7 Netball Team have shown sheer determination and persistence throughout training and games over the season, which has propelled them to become one of the best teams in the Borough.  After winning every game in their group, they were then selected to go through to the semi-finals.

    The semi-final was against St. Helens. The Douay team started strong with our defence marking tightly, turning over balls and putting enormous pressure on their opponents. After the first half, Douay were winning 6-4. The lead gave the girls great confidence and in the second half, St. Helens struggled to get the ball down to their shooting half. The end result being 10 – 4 to Douay.

    The pressure was on! Douay then had to play against their toughest opponents yet.... Northwood College in the Borough Finals. Both teams fought it out, scoring after each other making it evenly matched. Every quarter saw either a Northwood or Douay lead by one. In the final quarter the game finished 11-11; officials gave an extra 2 minutes for a golden goal and unfortunately this wasn’t achieved by Douay. Northwood College took the victory in extra time. Even though the girls didn’t win the Borough League, this is amazing achievement for them and a great start to the team's secondary school life.
