Half Term and the School pauses for breath.
Consequently, there are no new stories this week but it has been a chance for the Boys’ Division Senior School to reflect on how far it has developed in terms of its rugby offer.
Rugby Buoyant Despite Semi-Final Loss
The First XV fought a close duel with Lancashire Cup holders, Lancaster RGS, in this year’s semi-final; in a dramatic game, they ended up on the wrong side of a 20-17 scoreline. It is the farthest the School has ever gone in this competition.
Chess Success for Junior Schools
The Junior School chess teams could also look back on an enjoyable term, as teams from the Junior Boys’ and Junior Girls’ Schools met with success in the English Primary Schools’ Chess Association Cup. A number of their teams progressed to the semi-final, which will be held in Prestatyn over two days in June.
Hair for Haiti
On the last day of term, the Junior Girls’ School held an hair for Haiti day and, once the money was collected in, over £550 was raised for the disaster fund.
