The last full day of tour proved to be exciting and eventful with super fixtures played at St. Columba's College. The boys ran out winners 33-24 in a thrilling match with tries from Freddie M (2), Henry H (2) and Freddie S. The Hockey fixture was equally exciting and despite going 1-0 up in the first half with a goal from Saskia H St. Columba's fought back extremely hard and ran out winners 2-1.
The matches were followed by a trip to a local leisure complex where the children enjoyed bowling and Quazar. Tom R celebrated his 12th birthday with chocolate cake, happy birthday!
The pupils have been super ambassadors for the school and drawn many comments from the general public and the hotel staff who have praised their behaviour and attitude over the past few days.
A huge thank you to all the parents who have supported the children during their fixtures and we wish everybody a safe journey home.
This year's concert will loosely have a "country/farm" theme and will include items from both of our orchestras, the two choirs, wind and strings groups, along with a cross section of the school's solo instrumentalists and singers. All main school children will be singing the concert songs which should provide a super finale. The words can be downloaded by clicking here.
The concert is a compulsory event for all children in years 3-8 and there will be no evening buses running that day. Tea will be provided at school. The hall is usually very full, so if you want a good seat you will need to come early. Doors open at 6pm.
A total of 23 pupils from Years 3 to 8 took part in the annual Shrewsbury School Prep School cross country races last weekend, with over 60 runners in each race and 10 schools competing. All 23 pupils tried their hearts out and produced some fantastic results. On the day, the highlight was thought to be William S coming second in the Under 11 boys race. However Shrewsbury have since said that there was an error with the recording and in fact, not only did William come second but the U11 Boys team actually won the team title, a tremendous achievement. It is just a shame for the boys that they were not able to pick up the trophy on the day.
