Soccer Sixes

There is nothing like a Set (House) competition to get rivalry going, especially when it is on a football field! Down came the rugby posts and in their stead, on were wheeled the football goals. All six Sets were in...

Red Nose day

There was a loud shout from the Boarding House this morning at about 7.20 and thinking there was an emergency I dropped everything to respond. Actually the shout was “Bring the camera!” In the Boarders Common Room our boarders were...
