Fresh Competition in Guernsey

Fresh Competition in Guernsey

Year 6 pupils from Cheltenham Prep had a superb couple of days of sport and beachside fun during a sporting tour to Guernsey. 

The schedule was jam packed with Hockey and Netball, with some sand castle sculpting and dodgeball thrown in for good measure! Cheltenham Prep's children were hosted by families of Elizabeth College Junior School pupils; this gave our children a fabulous opportunity to make new friends and experience island life as part of a Guernsey family.

On Friday evening and Saturday afternoon our pupils were treated to a huge variety of activities from movies, shopping, bowling and meals out to trips to one of the many beautiful beaches that can be found across the island. For some of our children, it was the first time on a plane and staying away from their own families. The staff on the trip were impressed with how well the children dealt with this and they were all excellent ambassadors for the school.

Aside from the brilliant experiences off the field, there was the small matter of the Hockey and Netball matches to attend to - 33 in total! Staff are very proud to report that our teams performed impressively against the various oppositions. A collation of the sports results from the weekend are below.
