Once again the sun shone on the senior school sports day for nearly all the day; although there was a pre-lunch period when the scorers were having to avoid some rather large but fortunately few rain drops. Lots of tea, coffee and cake was provided and rapidly consumed by the spectators, and lots of honest endeavour from the children in a wide range of athletic events.
Records tumbled with Amber, Zac C, Ella, Beau and Harriet (2) all beating the previous bests in their events since records began more than 50 years ago … so no mean feat there. Sale were the triumphant house winning the house athletics trophy but I feel the school was the real winner having so many children “doing their best”.
I think it is appropriate for me to thank all the many people who make the day run so smoothly: the prep school staff on the events and scoring, the kitchen staff and matrons for producing and serving mountains of food and drink, the grounds staff for the preparation of the field and the Head for his running commentary throughout the day. I hope you all enjoyed it as well. J. Coulson
