Verulympics VIII Update

Once again the whole school came together for the flagship event of the annual Hawkes House Cup. The success of the event is very much down to the positive attitude generated in the weeks leading up to the day.

The pupils competed in 22 events over a four day period which culminated in our annual track and field athletics event at Westminster Lodge. An underlying theme of the event is to try something new and I was very pleased to hear of one pupil who has joined a local tennis club on the back of his Verulympic experience.

Special mention must go to the school film crew who captured the essence of the event using a drone to obtain fantastic footage from high above the track. I look forward to the finished film coming out very soon.

During the afternoon track and field competition, the following school records were broken, special congratula- tions must go to these athletes.
Please find below the official overall (Years 7-10) Verulympic results for 2017. The results of the annual Hawkes House Cup will be formally announced in the closing assemblies on Friday 21st July.
