It was another gloriously sunny day as our Prep pupils took to the School field for their Sports Day.
Parents and supporters were there to cheer on teams and individuals in events including long jump, hurdles, sprints and relays. Every pupil was encouraged to take part in events designed to be fun as well as challenging. It was wonderful to see our children rise to the occasion and encourage their peers to do their best in each event.
As the day drew to a close, there was a fiercely contested House tug-of-war competition, which provided some brilliant photos, before a final presentation for each year’s victor and victrix ludorum and the House Cup.
Thank you to all of the brilliant staff and helpers who made the day such a success, to all of the parents who braved the sunshine and to every pupil who showed true determination and compassion throughout the day.
Self-belief, making the impossible possible
Passion, having the drive to be your very best
Over the moon, joy at the unexpected tiny successes
Respect, encouraging each other, celebrating, commiserating
Teamwork, taking the strain in the tug-of-war competition
Sunshine, the mercury rising to 21 degrees, gazebo shade, refilling water bottles
Determination, when the going gets tough, the tough get going
At last you understand…
You can do it!
