Fr Dodds Blessed our new Artificial Grass Pitch on 16th June and Maura Regan cut the ribbon to officially open it. Directors, governors and staff were joined by Sport England, the designers, contractors and the two local Hockey Clubs (Darlington & Bishop Auckland). Students from Carmel College, St Augustine’s and St Teresa’s gave a demonstration of the variety of activities that can be undertaken on the pitch, as well of course as Hockey.
Thank you to all our parents who have contributed through the College Development Fund to make our dream of providing an all weather, all season pitch for the students a reality; your £5 per month has made a huge difference. The project was also funded by Sport England, England Hockey, Darlington Borough Council and Carmel College.
