Prep Sports Day
It was already 26 degrees at 10 in the morning and parents were grappling with their gazebos to provide shade for the day. Sports Day, a festival of inter-house athletics had finally arrived and was underway with the traditional athletes' parade.
Years 3 and 4 began the track events while Years 5 and 6 were in the field. Competition for places was fierce as every pupil gave their all for their house, yet when they finished they embraced and congratulated each other. This was Chandlings at it’s very best.
Following a picnic lunch with parents and friends, the competitors then reversed events swapping the track and field. It was an extraordinary afternoon with records being broken by Kai Wilkinson and Oliver Roberts, but it was triple winners Jack Veal and Amy Frost who lifted the Victor and Victrix Ludorum trophies this year.
The House Trophy winners were Astley.
