This week the weather took a turn for the worst and suddenly we needed to wrap up a little warmer; well that was the case for the staff at least, the pupils however, were kept very busy and I am not even sure they felt the cold at all! I secretly think the U13 boys enjoyed the experience of a mud bath in their rugby matches, it certainly didn’t dampen their spirit against Queens on Wednesday 13th November, where Alfie H in year 8 led the way with an outstanding performance.
On Thursday the cold and rain didn’t stop the Year 3&4 pupils against Blundell’s. I was so impressed with their grit and determination to play, they worked really hard and competed in great matches across the board.
Our Year 7 and 8 girls went to Energie Gym on Wednesday 13th November for an afternoon filled with circuit fitness and to use the cardio machines. A great afternoon had by all, the girls even had a go at the ‘Member of the Month Challenge’. The challenge was how many box jumps can you complete in 90 seconds. You’ll be impressed at the leader board where 5 of our girls made the top 10, with Bea W in year 8 stealing the top spot and is now the one to beat.
We are looking forward to our U9 Festival at Blundell’s on Saturday for both hockey and rugby and also to our fixture list next week where we have a host of matches against St John’s, Bramdean, Exeter School and West Buckland.
Please note there will be no Year 7&8 Games on Friday 22nd November and also no Year 3&4 swimming due to rehearsals for the Autumn concert.
Well done everyone on another great sporting week.
