Unbeaten Boys Win Presidents Trophy
A great week for sport as Bolton School Under 13s water polo team celebrated winning the prestigious 'President Trophy' tournament where they remained unbeaten in all their games to take the title! The boys won all of their five games to become the champions, against top class teams from all over the country. The last time the school won this trophy was back in 2005. Over the last two years the team has only lost one game and in that time has won five trophies - the Bradford Cup, City of Manchester Tournament, Bolton and District Knock out and league, and now, the President Trophy.
Continuing the sporting achievements, a team of Bolton School girls competed in the Northern England and Scotland Aegon Team Tennis Regional Quarter Finals, narrowly missing out on a place in the National final. The Senior girls progressed through the North West league and knockout stages to get to this level of the competition where they snatched victory in an extremely competitive semi-final match but lost out in the final.
Our Year 9 Percussion Ensemble took part in a Community Music Event this week, performing a 30 minute concert to the children of Brownlow Fold Primary School. The concert consisted of some full ensemble items, some solo items and some audience participation involving the children, who were given the opportunity to try out some of the percussion instruments, in what was a very worthwhile event both for the Bolton School students and for the children at Brownlow Fold.
Old Girl and author Mrs Pat Turner returned to the school this week to personally donate a copy of 'Head Girl at Vivians' to the Girls' Division library. This is the second book in her 'Vivians' series which is being published after 60 years!
Infant children at Beech House celebrated Children in Need day with a really spotty non uniform event raising over £700 for the charity. And as part of the Parents' Association's fundraising activities, all this week they have held a Breakfast Club for the Junior Girls to come along to school early and choose from a selection of pancakes, mini doughnuts, pastries, fresh fruit, muffins, hot chocolate, orange juice and blackcurrant juice.
