Third Year Boys took part in an exciting day of team building challenges to bond with their new classmates.

Held in the sunshine on the School fields, the annual event encourages new boys and existing pupils to get to know their new Form Group and Sixth Form mentors as they compete in a series of exciting activities. Third Year Hamptonians learned that excellent communication skills, cooperation and lateral thinking were the key to success.

The boys faced puzzles including ‘Deep Sea Rescue’, ‘Egyptian Moves’ as well as the hotly anticipated ‘Giant Ski Race’ finale – all producing lots of laughter, head scratching and great team work.

After an exciting day, 3J emerged as the victorious form. Joint Head of the Year, Mr Tom Rigby, was delighted with the Third Years positive approach to the day:

We were absolutely delighted to watch the boys in action together on Thursday as they tackled a variety of problem-solving exercises with intelligence, enthusiasm, imagination, tenacity and good humour. It was hugely encouraging to witness the boys implementing our advice to communicate effectively and work together as a team. These are strong early signs that the boys have understood and are attempting to achieve the aims we set them at the start of term:

  • Strive for Personal Best
  • Be Kind
  • Get Involved

Well done to all the Third Year boys who embraced the day with such enthusiasm.
