A day of blue sky and unbroken sunshine cooled by a northerly breeze was the setting for the 2013 Sports Day. The unsung heroes of so many school events, groundsman Doug Nutley, marquee constructor Adrian and many others were busy late on Friday night and again very early on Saturday morning. Chris Brannam, member of staff responsible for running the day, wrote,
'Adrian and Katrzyna were down on the games field helping to set up at 6.30am and Adrian was still down there tidying up at 8pm. We could not have managed without their help.
I am sure that everyone will agree that Piotr, Ewa and all of the domestic staff did an absolutely splendid and professional job in providing such a delicious spread both at lunch and at tea. Many parents passed on extremely complimentary comments.
Last, but by no means least, we would like to thank Doug Nutley and the rest of the ground staff who ensured that the games fields looked so good. We often forget how much work goes into the upkeep of the grounds.'
Records were broken by:
Ella Houston: Senior 100m, 800m, Long Jump, High Jump and also as a member of the record-breaking 4x400m Bronte relay team
Charlotte Bateman: Senior discus
Abigail Rennie: Intermediate Javelin
Charlie McLaren: Intermediate discus
Samuel Rahaley: Intermediate shot
In addition all winners of 300m events are current record. This is a new event because the school athletics community has reduced the traditional 400m race to 300m for all except Under 14 boys.
