As part of a year-long series of events to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of St. Mary’s Menston, a Sports Day was held last weekend for former students and staff. Over one hundred participants took part in Football, Netball and Multi-Sports competitions with as many others spectating.
The Football competition involved seven teams with some players having left the school thirty years ago. After a full afternoon, the Football competition was eventually won by Sam Townend, Ryan McMurray, Martin Roberts, Mark Roberts, Patrick Clough, Rauri Docherty and Aiden Webster.
The Netball competition was won by the St. Mary’s Staff team consisting of:
- B Pounder
- A North
- A Murphy
- C Anderson
- J Greenhalgh
- N Mallinson
- D Neale
- H Burton
- E Maguire
- C Parlby
The Multi-Sport competition consisted of eight sporting challenges of skill and fitness. This was open to anyone who attended the day’s events and was won by Alan Storey who attended St. Mary’s in the 1980’s where he was an outstanding athlete and footballer. Second and third places in the competition went to current students Kieran Roebuck and James Key.
During the afternoon, visitors enjoyed guided tours of the school and students provided live music. The afternoon concluded with refreshments and the presentation of prizes.
Assistant Headteacher, David Geldart, who organised the event, was full of praise for all the participants, spectators, organisers and volunteers who made the day such a success.

A fantastic success involving parents, former students and staff
Our beautiful chapel has never been furnished with a Presidential Chair which is the Priest’s chair. To mark the 50th Anniversary of St. Mary’s, a bespoke joiner, who is one of our parents and carers, has been commissioned to design and make a chair in keeping with our chapel and fit for a Bishop.
