The year 8 house football matches were a wonderful celebration of the hard work and commitment the boys have shown this year and beyond. In one competition the final place went to the team with the most goals scored. The Saxons and Viking both got equal points but in the end the Saxons nicked it on goal difference. Not surprising when you consider it was a side containing the attacking threats of Crook, Griffiths, Callow and Williams. Mr Waterfield was thrilled with the spirit and camaraderie shown by the players and it is pleasing to see them understanding the core values of sport.
The Celts emerged as the winners of the participation competition. It was great to see players helping other houses out with numbers and lovely to see the likes of Duggan, McPherson and Dyte score well taken goals. Star turn of the day was Davies, who in reflection probably should have played up a level.
It has been a very pleasing term with excellent achievement across the board. It is a very talented year group but most pleasing to me is that every boy feels valued and appears to enjoy participating in competitive sport.
