Sports Day 2019

Friday 5th July

Both Pre-Prep and Prep Sports Days were competitive but fun-filled. Pre-Prep, on Wednesday, saw all pupils run in flat, egg and spoon, friends, sack, obstacle and relay races. The Kindergarten children joined in too, as did some very game mums and dads! On completion of the races, all participants received a rosette and a chocolate treat. Medals, for accruing the most points were presented to:

Reception class Hugo
Form 1       Geordie MC
Form 2 Girls Matilda
Form 2 Boys  Finnian
Squad winners Home

The culmination of a term’s work in athletics comes to fruition on Sports Day, for the Prep School. Heats and in some cases, finals, take place in all events, with the displaying of score sheets an eagerly anticipated day in the last week of term. From this, the top athletes can work out just what they need to do in order to secure Bronze, Silver or Gold on the big day itself. This year, there was fierce competition in all age groups but none more so than in the Senior Girls Championship-with an incredibly able bunch of girls all in with a chance, the title came down to the last event, the 200m, with Emma SW staking her claim.

The Victor Ludorum competition too was tight but with this battle being between two rather than six athletes. Another tussle, in the sprints saw genuine all-rounder Caelan take the trophy. Four records were broken this year; John I broke the Junior boys cricket ball throw with 48.34cm, Beatrice C knocked one hundredth of a second off the Pre-Junior 75m record which now stands at 11.30s. Home Junior boys broke Percy’s 10 year old relay record, now 1m05.00 and Scott broke their own 2006 senior girls relay record, which is 1m01.80s (it was 1m05.98s)

Scott squad won both the Sports day Cup and Sloan Cup, adding to their successes on Squad day, The Swimming Gala and Prize Giving (Calistri Cup) Very well done!
