Sunday 24th

A cold Sunday morning started with our church service. The choir sang beautifully with Oliver Raymond singing a wonderful solo. For all those who were in church we had a very humorous and thought provoking sermon from Rev Tiffer, the first of many which warmed us up in the very cold church!

On our return to OBH, the morning was taken up with the parents’ and pupils’ clay pigeon shoot. In a keenly fought contest second place went to Robin and Archie Maxwell and winners were Nick Drake and Freddie Price with a special prize going to Tim and Billy Vestey who I am sure will enjoy their shooting lesson!

In the afternoon some of the boarders enjoyed their cooking with Mrs Chapman while the rest of the boarders played in some very entertaining Netball and Hockey matches against the mothers and fathers. The girls were victorious against their mothers – just, while the fathers were clearly determined to win. Player of the match in the 1st XI game was Mr Bahar who made some outstanding saves with the Fathers winning as Robin Maxwell slotted away a goal against Archie! Some tired legs left the field and courts for a well deserved cup of tea!
