Following a most successful Sports Day for the Junior Department, it has been the turn of the rest of the school.
A fine day and some excellent performances gave the spectators a very pleasant afternoon on the last Wednesday of term.
Laurie Salkeld’s high jump of 4 ft. 5 in., Michael Carritt’s hurdling, and Cyril Gadney’s all-round performances are worth special mention.
Laurie jumped in beautiful style.
The school hurdling has improved tremendously. The regular practice they have had made a deal of difference. Michael Carritt won with a time of 17 seconds, with D Hunt second and K Horsley third.
Other results included:
Broad Jump (Open): Ist – C Gadney (14 ft. 7 in.), 2nd – W Kaye, 3rd – G Hardman.
Hop, Step & Jump (Open): 1st – C Gadney (30 ft. 6 in.), 2nd – L Salkeld, 3rd – G Hardman.
100 yds. (Open): 1st – C Gadney (12.2 seconds), 2nd – B Sheard.
Cricket Ball (Open): 1st – V Forrester (65 yds.), 2nd – F Grove.
We also had 100 yd races for under 9/10/11/12/13/14 year-olds, a Bicycle Race (6 laps), Girls’ Races & High Jump, a Tortoise Race, a Three-Legged Race, A Donkey Race, a Team Race (Boarders v Dayboys, in which the Dayboys went all out to win by 3 or 4 yards) and senior and junior Obstacle Races.
We hope that this year’s practice of timing the races will be continued.
