Rector’s eNews – 01 September 2021

/ Rector's eNews

The end of last week proved to be one of the high points of the term with the Athletics Sports Day, brought forward from Saturday as a result of the expectation of snow on the weekend to Thursday and Friday afternoons. The boys competed with immense verve, enjoying the competition with each other, in blustery conditions and some excellent times were recorded. Founders snatched victory from Farfield in the dying moments of Friday afternoon as the temperature suddenly dropped by 10 degrees.

The final results were : 1st Founders (531), 2nd Farfield (519), 3rd Pascoe (450), 4th McCormick (395), 5th Ralfe (387), 6th Baines (382), 7th Mackenzie (366), 8th Tatham (359) and tie 9th East & West (346).
