In order to represent better value for money, the European Directors of sport have agreed to develop the programme of these tournaments to include a social activity and as a school, we will be endeavoring to ensure that the only costs charged to parents are for pupil transport and accommodation.
In addition to the above, we have planned some tournaments against other independent schools in Poland, we will continue to compete in the Mokotow district competitions where appropriate and also prepare for competitions with a range of friendly fixtures.
