THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING SAW A BUSY ROUND OF INTER-HOUSE COMPETITIONS TAKE PLACE AT CHRIST COLLEGE.
In cold but bright sunny conditions, the CCF held its annual Drill and Turnout competition. All the houses had put in many hours of practice into the drill sequence, and the preparation of their boots and uniforms. The cadets were inspected by Sgt Ray Cooper, from the RAF, and as a RAF Drill Instructor, he was meticulous in his inspection.
Later in the evening it was the turn of the House Quiz competition.
For the first time in the history of the House Challenge competition the evening saw an all-girl final. The preliminary competition saw Donaldson’s finish with a particularly strong round to take top qualifying spot with de Winton maintaining their early lead over School House. St David’s snatched the fourth qualifying spot from Orchard.
Donaldson’s selected St David’s as their Semi-Final opponents leaving de Winton to face School House. De Winton took an early lead and were never in danger running out comfortable winners by a scoreline of 135 to 50. The second Semi-Final was finely balanced at the halfway stage but Donaldson’s moved up a gear to beat St David’s by an impressive 180 – 50. The final looked to be a formality with Donaldson’s storming into 120 point lead with 6 minutes to go. De Winton rallied strongly to close the gap to 25 points and could tie the match if they had got to the buzzer first on the final question. It was not to be and the final scoreline of 170-135 was a credit to both teams.
