At Henley Regatta on Sunday I was lucky enough to be following the boys in the launch as the quad won the Fawley Cup, it was an experience I will never forget, the noise from the bank showed the great support that both crews enjoyed, the win reflected the efforts that the boys, coaches and families have given through the year.

Our Year 7 and 8 Drama performances showed their usual level of enthusiasm and skills that will ensure our long history of success in this field continues, the winners will be announced next week.

Well done to our 100% attendance boys who enjoyed Pizza and an early lunch today.

Next week we have our Activities whether Camping, Dragon Boating or working with the Community it promises to be an enjoyable week.

As there is no bulletin next week I will take the opportunity to wish all a restful and happy holiday.

To finish a quote from Jono Cameron who was at 3 in the quad - "Brilliant, awesome to have done the triple, especially considering that three years ago we didn't have a J18 here. To now have a full squad and winning all three is incredible."

Exhibition TODAY please drop in
