Trennick – Water Polo Champions

What a busy weekend!


Saturday started early with a few senior boys getting ready to travel to Exeter School to play rugby in the U16 and 2nd XV teams. In two very competitive games OJ, Kilian and Robert played well. The U16 narrowly losing 14-7, and the 2nd XV winning 20-17. During an afternoon and evening filled with international sports the boys were spoilt for choice. There were a number of rugby matches and England were also playing football. Both common rooms were well used throughout the day. For some, they found their entertainment completing a few missions on the PS4. The boys also had the option to visit the cinema and watch the new Benedict Cumberbatch film ‘The Imitation Game’ about the cracking of the enigma code at Bletchley Park. Some boys took the option to watch this on Sunday as they went out to the Zen noodle bar for a meal to celebrate Maria’s birthday during Saturday evening.


Early on Sunday morning, Brain left to compete in the Cornwall Open Judo competition. This is Brain’s first competition since joining the school’s judo club last year. During the day he won in the early rounds and made it to the final where he competed and eventually won. He is now the Cornwall County Open Judo champion under 60kg. Well done Brain, a fantastic result!


During Sunday I opened up the pool during the afternoon so that the boys could play some water polo. Eight boys from Trennick were joined by eight from Pentreve to use the 25 metre indoor pool. In a fiercely contested game the boys from both boarding houses had a fantastic time during the session.  You can see some photos from the match here.


The boys were really keen on the idea to run a Trennick FIFA 2014 World Cup Football competition using the PS4. The competition will run from now until Christmas and every boy in the house will have the opportunity to compete.
