JUNIOR SPORTS DAY

On Friday afternoon we were joined by families and friends for a fantastic afternoon of competition and teamwork at our Junior Sports Day. There were sack races, running races, obstacle races and relay races as well as the ever popular parents’ races! The event demonstrated the effort, enthusiasm, determination and all round good sportsmanship shown by our Junior School pupils at Chard. There was plenty of individual talent on show on the day with Grenville winning the day overall. Well done everyone!

The sun smiled down on us last Friday for the annual Pre-Prep Sports Day. It was lovely to see so many parents and family attending and cheering on the children. Everything ran like clockwork, thanks to Miss T, Mrs Downing, Mrs Snell and Mrs Lewis and ice creams rounded off the day beautifully! Well done everyone!

Quadkids Success

Our QuadKids team had a fantastic and sunny afternoon of athletics last week, competing against 9 other schools in a range of disciplines. There were some brilliant individual performances, special mentions for Oliver and Josua who both won the 600m event in their age categories and Rowan with the longest vortex throw of the afternoon. Oliver was placed 2nd overall in his age group and Rowan 3rd in his, whilst the team was placed 3rd overall – a brilliant result. Congratulations!

OCA Annual Reunion Dinner

OCA Annual Reunion Dinner

Once again numbers exceeded expectation for the annual reunion dinner of the Old Cerdics Association last Saturday 10th June 2017.  Long before the closing date a record attendance was assured with former pupils travelling long distance from as far afield as Lincolnshire and Cheshire to be in Chard for this popular event.  Many met beforehand at our Summer Fair on Monmouth Lawn.

Our Headmistress, Sarah Graham, was the principal guest.  Having responded to a Toast to ‘The School’ she in turn proposed a Toast to ‘Old Cerdics’ to which OCA President responded.   After a sumptuous buffet dinner live musical entertainment was provided by two Old Cerdics Stewart Hull and Darryl Uprichard.

This annual event is already booked for the same weekend next year – Saturday 9th June 2018.  It will be a special year for the OCA as the association will be celebrating its 90th anniversary having been founded at Chard School on 1st December 1928 – so an even larger attendance is expected.

A little bit of drizzle did not deter crowds at our annual Summer Fair today where families, past pupils and visitors were treated to a wide range of stalls and activities whilst being entertained by our pupils in the busking corner. Thanks to the Friends of Chard School for a lovely afternoon!
