Sports Day (Issue 15 2018)
Written on the 25 October 2018
Last Thursday, the Middle School community celebrated their annual Sports Day. After a drizzly start to the day which saw some events being modified, the skies cleared to allow perfect conditions for the boys to demonstrate their athletic prowess.
Popular events on the day included the 100m and 200m sprints, Tug of War and the various jumping and throwing events. In addition to this, we were entertained by the running finals of the Age Champion competition, performances from the Drum Corps and Vicious Pandas, and the Staff-student 4x100m relay, taken out by Montagne house.
Congratulations to Marian, the winning house on the day and to the four Age Champions: Henry McKinnon (Junior), Ethan McAneney (Under 13), Tinashe Chihota (Under 14) and Brandon Smith (Senior).
This day would not have been possible without the efforts of the teachers and support staff from the Middle School. Particular thanks to Mike Ellul, who not only acted as MC for the day, but who also coordinated the music and audio. Thanks also to Terry Rice and Neil Williams for their outstanding work in preparing the grounds for the day and to Terry McAuliffe for again helping with his commentary of the running events. Well done to all students and parents whose attendance and participation allowed this to be another successful day!
