Sunny Sports Days
The Prep School boys enjoyed two Sports Day in perfect sunny conditions last week. We were delighted to see so many parents attending and cheering the boys on. Prep took part in eight Athletics events, competing in Houses and as individuals, with a possible 100 points available for each event. After two hours of grit and determination, it was Roberts House who would defend their title from Osborn, Westbury and Martin.
New school records were set by Riyad Islam in the shot (9.02m), George Turner in the triple jump (6.60m) and Fergus Cooke (9.78s) in the 55m Hurdles. In the Individual competition, Finn Thorpe took the honours in Prep 1, Charlie Roebuck and George Turner defended their titles in Prep 2 and Prep 3 and for the fourth time in four years a new winner emerged in Prep 4. Having finished runner up last year Riyad Islam rose up the rankings to claim first prize.
The following day saw the Pre-Prep department take part in their Sports Day in similar sunny conditions. A far more relaxed atmosphere, at least amongst the boys, followed and lots of fun was had by all. The boys took part in eight relay-based skills stations, scoring points solely for their House. Under the guidance of Mrs Chung the Kangaroo’s took the group prize and overall it was Roberts House who would claim the trophy from Martin.
Well done to all the boys who took part across the two events.
