Pre-Prep Sports Day

Pre-Prep Sports Day

The Pre-Prep department enjoyed a super Sports Day on Saturday morning.

Although it was rather windy on Top Field it was bright and sunny, enabling the competitors and supporters to make the most of this popular event. Thank you to the ground staff for the enormous amount of work in preparing the Top Field, which looked fantastic.

The races started at 10am with the Reception children showing genuine enthusiasm for their running races. The Year 1 and 2 children were equally excited and determined, and many events were competitively run. From traditional egg and spoon, to bean bag and sack races, the children really did themselves proud as they tried their utmost every event.


The final race was the inter house relay, which was hotly contested by children and staff alike! For the second year running Churchills came a convincing first place, followed by Wellingtons  in second, Pitts in third and Nelsons in fourth.


A huge well done to all of the competitors who showed very decent sporting etiquette throughout. Thank you to the games staff; Mrs Brailich and Mr Wood,  for preparing the children so well for their events.  Finally,  thank you to the many supporters who came to cheer the children on and make this such a lovely occasion.
