Interhouse Athletics Day 2017

October 9, 2017

The annual Interhouse Athletics Day took place on Friday, 22 September at the Westbourne Oval. There was great excitement amongst the pupils as they could compete in almost all the events.  Our dedicated staff once again ensured that proceedings ran smoothly. The class shuttle relays were closely contested and increased the excitement amongst the pupils and staff.


The highly anticipated sprint finals didn't disappoint and each race was nail biting. The ever-popular relay baton races were the crowd favourite and ran without any hiccups.

Chapman House won the Interhouse trophy and Kennersley House was awarded the Spirit trophy.


The final results were as follows:           

1. Chapman             591
