This year, the weather was kind for Sports Day, with near on perfect conditions for the houses to battle it out for individual and team honours. There were some strong performances in all disciplines, with two school records broken – Benedict W in the Junior Boys Triple Jump set a new record of 11.69m (replacing the 2008 record of 11.6m) and JoJo G in the Senior Girls Shot with a distance of 9.01m (replacing a record from 1984 of 8.87m).
