The First Ever Pre-Prep Sports Day!

The First Ever Pre-Prep Sports Day!

Thursday 16th June – possibly the hottest day of the year so far and certainly the most exciting for the Pre-Prep and their parents and teachers!


Guests were treated to a fine display from our young Pipe Band before events got underway with a gruelling 800m. Some of the smaller ones all but disappeared in the dip at the far end of the track, but all eventually resurfaced and ran gallantly, retaining sufficient energy for long jump, high jump and rounders ball and many more races, including the 400m, 200m and the 60m before the real fun started with a tattie and spoon race, a three-legged race and, most controversial of all, the sack race!


After delicious picnics in the glorious sunshine, a brief awards ceremony saw the Headmaster present the new Pre-Prep Victor Ludorum trophy to Xander Langton. This beautiful new trophy is courtesy of the Campbell family to mark George’s fantastic contribution to athletics at Belhaven. The Patrol trophy, after a fierce battle throughout the day between all four Junior Patrols (Owlets, Woodpecker Chicks, Lion Cubs and Wolf Pups), was awarded to the Chicks! 


This was followed by a Form 6 camp out in the Walled Garden – eventually, the adrenaline of the day wore off and everyone went to sleep, although the weather did not bode well for the Prep School Sports Day.
