Racket sports success
Congratulations to James Vincent who with his partner Angus Howard completed their debut domination of Racketlon World Championships defeating all opposition before them to claim a spectacular world title! Our youngest ever team World Champions! James also won bronze in the U13's singles."
There were over 500 entries from 29 different countries and five continents in Zurich playing across multiple events and age categories. Racketlon involves playing your opponent in all four major racket sports: tennis, squash, badminton and table tennis. Each sport is played to 21 and the player with the most points across all four sports wins the match.
On Sunday 8 July – the day after the Summer Term ended – our very own Mr Lawes, Mr Rainer and Mr Arnold completed a Team Ironman Relay at Hever Castle, in an incredible 13 hours and 39 minutes. Mr Lawes kicked off at 6.00am with a 3.8km swim around the Lake and River Eden, before handing the baton over to Mr Rainer for his 180km cycle; Mr Arnold then took over for the last leg, a 42km run (a marathon). All of this was completed in 32ºc heat, which did not let up all day. It was the most incredible effort from every one of them, pushing themselves to their physical and mental limits to complete their section.
All their efforts were in aid of the Dusty Yak Foundation, our school charity for this year. The Ironmen have raised a significant amount of money already, and they are so grateful for all the support they have received so far. Following Miss Higham’s recent trip to Nepal to visit the girls in the orphanage, we know exactly how much the money raised will mean to them.
Aldro's team of four Form 5 boys: Ollie, William, Luke and Arthur competed in and were named the overall winners of the Pangbourne College Performance Poetry Competition. After a poetry workshop each team were given a choice of two poems to prepare for their performance. The Aldro team demonstrated great team work, enthusiasm, originality and a wide range of performance techniques. Many congratulations boys.
