Commonwealth Games call-up for New Hall coach

Students at New Hall School, a Roman Catholic boarding and day school in Boreham, Chelmsford, are celebrating their teacher’s success after she was selected to compete in the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast of Australia. Michelle Drayne (centre), who has been Head of Netball at New Hall for three years, received the call up for Team Northern Ireland. Michelle’s actions have led to 26 goal assists in three games so far.

The students at New Hall are very proud of their teacher, who has acted as an inspirational role model for many aspiring athletes at the school.
