The celebration of sport event recognises athletes from the VI-VIII who train so hard for their sport to be recognised. With so many girls involved, it was a long but inspiring evening. It began with Kiko Matthews, our guest speaker, speaking of how, having managed to conquer a life-threatening disease called Cushing’s, will attempt to break the women’s record for fastest time to solo cross the Atlantic Ocean later this year. She discussed the importance of not being afraid to try, as well as living every day like your last, and delivered a moving and provocative speech. Awards were presented in the form of colours and trophies, and everyone in the VIII who has participated in extracurricular sport was given a rose. The evening ended with the senior rowers eight being awarded team of the year.
