The inter-house competitions proved extremely challenging during last term.  Students have taken part in chess tournaments, tug-of-war, dodge ball, spelling bee and escape room.  With such a wide range of activities and sports there is something to suit every student.  Well done to all students who took part and represented their house, and thank you for those who came along to support their fellow House members.  The leader board as of the end of Term 3 is as follows;
