Sports Day

On Wednesday 20th June the Physical Education department hosted its annual Sports Day at Cromers Corner, where the four Houses of Cromer, Hales, Morrison and Stanhope compete for lower school (Years 7 and 8) and upper school (Years 9 and 10) trophies across the traditional Olympic track and field athletic events. We were very fortunate to have ideal conditions for the competitors; the very pleasant weather plus an athletics track in wonderful condition made for a great spectacle and no doubt assisted our athletes in the quality of their performances. All of the students who competed on the day epitomised the school ethos of ‘Everybody Matters, Everybody Succeeds, Everybody Helps’; no matter their ability, their level of fitness, their level of experience, their apprehension about performing in front of a large audience, all of the students who participated embodied the qualities that are a major strength of this school. As I said at the close of competition, everybody contributed in some way, be it staff, competitor or spectator, to make Sports Day a memorable day. Indeed, the spectators from all of the four houses (and the staff!) were amongst the most animated I can remember. Thank you again to all of the staff and Sixth Form students for their help, co-operation and camaraderie in the build up to and during Sports Day. Again, I would like to praise every single student who competed on the day; well done, you were a credit to your House and you demonstrated that, regardless of what position you finished in your event, you are a real team player and this attitude will serve you well throughout your life.
