The first half of the Michaelmas term has seen a sports programme like never before at Christ College. The unique circumstances that we currently find ourselves in created the ideal opportunity for a meaningful inter-house competition to take place with a whole host of sports and activities to be sampled. As we approach the end of the first half term we have seen some fierce inter-house competition occur in a number of sports and activities including rugby, hockey, football, rounders and team capture the flag.
The regular competition has breathed new life into the traditional house rivalries and in the penultimate week the scores could not have been closer. The final standings in the junior competition saw Usk house crowned champions with Wye and Taf in second and third. In the senior girls competition de Winton house finished in first place, closely followed by Donaldson’s in second and St Davids in third. However, St Davids fared much better in the senior boys competition finishing first, followed my School House and then Orchard.
Here Ella (Usk) , Nia (deWinton) and Llyr (St Davids) collect their cups.
