Although the calendar of house events has been cut drastically short due to the ongoing pandemic, the annual challenge for the coveted House Trophy and Sports Day Cup is still firmly on.
From today, students in Years 7, 8 and 9 are being urged to log on to Class Charts and download the activities to gain house points for this year’s virtual competition, which is set to run over the next few weeks.
Week one kicks off with PE and maths, the second week centres on a virtual sports day, and the third and final week is all about the BES Biathlon.
Activities will include running the length of the pitch at Twickenham, climbing the height of The Shard, taking on the speed bounce challenge and running as far as possible in sixty minutes.
PE teacher, Mr Chase, said: “The students have been amazing during these past few months. They have overcome problems and demonstrated a great deal of resilience.”
“To end the year on a high, we’ve decided to run a virtual competition. Each day students will gain points for submitting their efforts and we’ll report the house scores every Wednesday.”
“We’re all extremely excited to see which house colours will be tied to the BES cups on the last day of term. The challenge is definitely on – so let the games begin.”
