A perfect warm afternoon saw over 120 children take part in the House multi-sports competition. Each pupil played for their House in one sport, so everyone was occupied all afternoon.
The sports on offer were Tennis, Table Tennis, Rugby, Quik Cricket, Multi-Skills and Mini Golf. It’s great to see that sportsmanship is now just an everyday part of life in the school. The huge number of red faces in the Hall at the end when we were announcing the results proved how hard they had been trying.
All the games were competitive, yes, but it was self competition, a genuine appreciation of how the opposition were playing and at the end, a friendly chat about the game and in many cases an ability to laugh at oneself when he/she had been at fault in that “ dropped catch “!!
A relaxed friendly, best team won competition. Everyone watching had a great afternoon supporting.
