Sports Day this year was Friday 29th May and as usual we all went into Downhills Park where freshly painted running lanes and finishing lines were awaiting our eager feet.

The heats had already been run, the throwing and jumping events had been decided, and the points already gained were so distributed that although Roberts House was slightly in the lead the Mercer Cup was at the mercy of any one of the four houses.

The weather had been so bad that the field had been unusable and in effect the houses had had only one day each in which to practise. Still, many people had trained hard at every spare moment and when Finals Day arrived, competition was keen and there was an air of excitement throughout the afternoon as each result brought the scores closer together.

Eventually Semmons emerged the winners with 288 points, with Wilson second (277½ points), third Roberts (269½ points) and Mandall fourth (259 points).
