Summer Term 2017

Inter-House Tug o' War

Mr Devey prepares to start the tow   Hopeman Seniors

Last Sunday saw the re-instatement of the inter-House Tug o' War competition, which turned out to be a very competitive though enjoyable competition for all who took part and spectated. Firstly, thanks are due to Mr Devey for his help and drive in getting the event completed, Mr Georgeson for his support and scoring and the staff supervising and encouraging the teams and supporters.

Junior girls winners - Plewlands

In the junior girls competition the team from Plewlands swept all before them winning both of their bouts, Windmill beat Hopeman to gain second place. The senior girls competition followed similar lines with the girls from Plewlands displaying their power on the south lawn, not to mention the volume of their winning screams...

In the junior boys competition Bruce competed well without being able to muster a winning pull, Cumming beat Bruce but could not cope with Round Square who, in turn, were unable to cope with the raw power of Duffus House who won all of their bouts.

On your marks...   On duty First Aiders

      

In the senior boys competition, G-House huffed and puffed but were unable to blow anyone down, Bruce competed with great enthusiasm and passion but could not match the other three Houses for power, Cumming won against everyone but Duffus, Round Square beat everyone but Cumming and Duffus only lost to Round Square. A three way tie ensued but Cumming lost 2-0 against Duffus. Round Square and Duffus won 7 pulls each, scoring 1 despite their losing performance, so a one off winner-takes-all bout was undertaken and the boys from Duffus mustered the power at the end of a long afternoon to beat the boys from Round Square.

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you for your considerable efforts.
