Week 11 of Term 1 saw the Junior School boys compete in their annual Summer House Games. The boys were confronted with a very hot and unseasonal autumn day. The boys are to be commended for their efforts as they battled the higher than usual temperatures.
Every boy from each of the four Houses is put into a team to compete in a sport against the other Houses. The boys can represent their house in cricket, modified cricket, tennis, tee ball or volleyball. For the first time we introduced kickball for the Year 3 boys to compete in this year.
The competition throughout the events was fierce but it was great to see a high level of sportsmanship from all the competitors.
I would like to thank all of the boys for their participation and the Senior School boys who helped to umpire the cricket matches. I would also like to thank the Junior School staff for their efforts in running the different matches.
A big thank you must also go to our four house leaders: Mr Athanasiou (Head of Brooks), Mr Burridge (Head of Alliston-Jones), Mr Crawley (Head of Clayton-Dyer) and Mr Davey (Head of Stokes-Ware), for all of the time they invested to ensure all of the different teams were selected and that all of the boys in their House were able to have an enjoyable day.
The results were as follows:
