Sports Day 2023
Sixth Form, Senior School, Nursery and Prep School, Sport
Last Friday saw RHSB staff and students from our Senior and Prep Schools have a fantastic day competing in our annual Sports Day at the University of Bath Athletics Centre.
The day was full of colour and excitement for students, friends, family and staff alike, nearly all of whom were kitted out in their House colours - red for Austen, blue for Bronte, yellow for Du Pré and green for Wollstonecraft.
In rain and some shine, the girls showed tremendous enthusiasm and effort, broke school records and cheered each other on. The Prep School showed great perseverence as they ran various races in rather trying conditions - many of our younger pupils finding themselves having to balance beanbags on tennis rackets while running against a very strong wind!
The Senior School competitors were equally determined, competing in a range of track and field events, from hurdles to relay races and from javelin to high jump. It was really encouraging to see everyone giving it their all - as well as to see so many family, friends and fellow house members cheering them on.
In the Prep school, Wollstonecraft managed to take first place. Well done Wollstonecraft Warriors! Overall, Austen maintained their victory coming first for Senior and Prep combined, Wollstonecraft a very close second, followed by Bronte in third and Du Pré in fourth.
Our annual combined Prep and Senior School Sports Day is one of the highlights of our school calendar. It is such a great example of teamwork and positivity, and what makes it so special every year is that every student is able to make a contribution and by doing so, make a difference.
Thank you everyone - staff, students, parents, families and friends - for helping make this such a successful event. We also want to say a huge thank you to the University for hosting us again and for being so accommodating as they do every year.
