Many congratulations to the prize winners at our annual Sports Awards 2023!
The evening centred around the theme ‘Memories’, with John Patterson, Director of Sport, kicking off with an opening address assuring the pupils how fondly they will look back on their school years.
Before the prize ceremony, John continued to thank the many supporters that contributed to our sporting success this year:
Special guest Lowri Norkett, Welsh Rugby International, then spoke to the crowd, alongside her dad Kim, who is a past CCB teacher and first team rugby coach, inspiring the sporting stars of tomorrow to follow in her footsteps.
The prize-giving ceremony started with the Sports Day Awards, with the Victor and Victrix Ludorum awards given to the outstanding male and female athlete on the day – Jack Organ and Olivia O’Brien.
The Girls House Cup contest was separated by a single point, with De Winton House coming out on top and Charlotte McSweeney accepting the award. The Boys House Cup was awarded to Orchard House and representative Jack Perrins.
The team captains then took to the stage, with Poppy and Charlie, Lucy and Poppy, Meg and Floss, and Ewan and Owen each reviewing their team’s year, before the sports awards presentation got underway:
Team Awards followed with the array of trophies across the stage showing what a stellar year it has been for our team sports.
The Senior Sport Cap Presentation followed, with Year 13 pupils who have showed dedication and commitment to their sport, fantastic leadership qualities and exemplar behaviour on and off the pitch being honoured and given their leavers cap onstage.
The Captain’s Blazer Presentation proceeded; a high honour for next year’s captains to receive their green and gold blazers.
