Last night saw St Edward’s Senior & Sixth Form pupils attend the annual Senior Sports Dinner, where their participation and success in sport throughout the academic year so far was celebrated and rewarded.

The evening began with some canapés, before the attendees were welcomed to the event by our Director of Sport, Ms Kenyon.

The sports being celebrated on the night included Netball, Hockey, Football and Rugby, with coaches reporting on their season, along with team captains, who gave very entertaining accounts of their seasonal highs and lows.

Awards handed out on the evening included “Most Improved Player”, “Players’ Player” and “Player of the Year” for the various teams. Also awarded were St Edward’s Half and Full Colours, rewarding great commitment and attitude in a particular sport. In addition, the Victor Ludorum and Victrix Ludorum Cups were awarded to the best overall male and female performers. This year the awards went to Daniel P and Monica A – many congratulations to them on their achievements.

The large number of pupils in attendance reflected the ambition and approach that students of St Edward’s have towards sport, and was testament to the motivation and drive that our PE staff have to help all of our students strive for the best.
