Second Year Blog

What a beautiful way to end the week!  The 3G has never been busier with boys rushing out at break time and lunchtime to let off steam and bask in the long-awaited summer sun.  The summer sports are finally getting some sunshine too:

“On Monday 22nd of May the team and I played Kingston Grammar School. The team instantly bounced back from a disappointing loss to Cheam High School with an 8-1 win. It was a great feeling winning convincingly and playing in beautiful weather for once.”  Ben Bird (2B)

“On Thursday we enjoyed another sun drenched match. However, Ibstock Place School gave us a run for our money. The team of Ben Bird (2B), Rohan Vasudev (2B), Billy Atkinson (2W) and me beat them 4-2. It was a very close match but we played well and in the end got the result we hoped for. Overall it has been a good week for the tennis team.” – Jai Saha (2J)

Our cricketers have been slightly less successful this week but remain in high spirits nonetheless:

“On Monday, the U13B cricket team played a Middlesex Cup fixture against Isleworth and Syon A team. Unfortunately, we lost badly. Having been bowled out for 68, our opponents easily made the target and deserved the win.” –  Luca Parrish (2P)

Let’s hope that the glorious weather holds out for our inter-form athletics competition in exam week.  The event is scheduled to take place on Tuesday afternoon and should be a great break for the boys after a morning of Latin and RS exams.

Speaking of exams, Mr Chaveneau, Head of Modern Languages, would like to congratulate the Second Year boys for their excellent preparation for the oral exams, which have been taking place this week. He says that both 2B and 2H displayed a really impressionnant et formidable niveau de français and il souhaite aux élèves bonne chance et beaucoup de réussite aux examensMs Buckley, who conducted the Spanish orals, says that the hispanists were un placer and wishes them mucha suerte in the remaining papers.  Herr Turner says that 2P war wunderbar!  Viel Glück für die Prünfungen.

Finally, we congratulate those boys who have picked up merit certificates this week: Theo Wedge, Jamie Lund, Jay Heading, Ethan Cox and Fraser Dunlop (30 merits), Ben Wix and James Bantick (50 merits), Sandy Mitchell (60 merits), Samaksh Agarwal (70 merits), Jai Saha (80 merits), Sam Colvine (100 merits), Abhi Sundaram and Nayaaz Hashim (110 merits) and Ben Francis (140 merits)!  Brilliant work, boys!
