House Athletics

The sun shone on House Athletics again this year.


The highlight of the field events was a nail-biting high jump contest which held the whole school spellbound as the final two competitors, existing school record holder Josie de Kock, and Annabel Jackson both broke the school record of 1.45m, jumping 1.46m. Cheered on by the whole school Annabel went on to jump 1.48m, the equivalent height of some Year 7s!


The new House Captains were out in force supporting and competing for their teams, especially in the track events where competitors again gave their all. The afternoon ended with thrilling relays, kicked off by Staff v Sixth Form, each with a team of 14 runners! Despite staff legs collectively being nearly 300 years older than the Sixth Form's the teachers put up a valiant fight but were piped at the final post!
