Representing Ross Boys, Micah clears well over the bar in high jump during the annual inter-house track and field meet yesterday. Students compete based on their age (bantam, junior, senior) in different categories. There are six events: high jump, long jump, running (100 m, 200 m, 400 m, 800 m and 1600 m), discus, relay, softball throw (girls) and cricket ball throw (boys). This event spans two days and helps students escape from the stress of exams by having fun outside with their housemates. At the closing Chapel next week, the individual and house awards will be announced. We will all have to wait until Graduation to find out who the senior girl (Morton Shield) and boy (Rankin Cup) all-around athletes are… Suspense is building!
This morning, we also announced our new Head of School for 2015-16. Mr. Tyler Lewis will be joining us from the Holderness School in New Hampshire. We are excited to tell you more about him in the coming weeks! Read the full announcement from Board Chair Tim Price.
