This years’ races were held in cool, damp conditions but this did nothing to qwell the crowd’s enthusiasm. There was a tremendous “house spirit” throughout the races with much vocal support.
As well as teams from all ten Houses, two staff teams earned the pupils’ respect and seemed to enjoyed the challenge. McClure won both races emulating the success of School House in 2007.
Individual successes included Naomi Kendall (Weymouth) beating her own record by completing the course in 6 minutes 15 seconds whilst Joe Sherry (McClure) shattered an already unbelievable record with a time of 4minutes 48 seconds (previously 4 minutes 56 seconds by Jack Perry-Williams).
The music department organised live entertainment during the event whilst Mrs Miner ran a food corner in support of our Partnership School in Nicaragua.
Well done to all those who played their part in this event.
