St Edmund’s Day this year focused on the life of St Edmund and celebrating College life, with a particular focus on raising the profile of House events and fostering House spirit.
Following a wonderful Whole School Mass in the morning and an enhanced lunch, students took part in our first “Winter Sports Day”. With the emphasis on participation, students were involved in a wide range of inter-house competitions from Rugby and Hockey to Dance, Chess and E-sports. Despite the autumnal weather, it was wonderful to see students embracing the day and getting involved, with House spirit very much to the fore.
The day finished back in Chapel with a hugely enjoyable evening concert performed by the College Orchestra and Choir, including an outstanding performance of John Rutter’s Requiem.
