Well done to all the boys involved - they played the games competitively but in the right spirit. Highlighs included Will B pulling off a series of magnificent saves during the evening (leaving one teacher from another school in disbelief at one point). The boys must also be commended for how quickly they got back on thebus at the end of th night, so that Mr Reeve could make it back to school in time for Year 8 Parents Evening!
