During the penultimate week of term, students at St Edward’s Senior & Sixth Form had a fantastic time celebrating House Day, with various competitions taking place virtually.

There was a huge amount of House Spirit on show with students doing their best to help their respective Houses earn as many points as possible. Three elements made up the event – A Scavenger Hunt, A Workout and World Record Attempts. With bonus points on offer for the best entries in each section of the event there was certainly a lot to play for!

A great deal of fun was had, especially with the World Record attempts section of the event. Ten challenges were set for this part of the competition, including:

  • the fastest time to put on a double duvet.
  • the most marshmallows eaten in one minute.
  • the fastest time to unravel a toilet roll.

Along with the House Points accumulated throughout the year, the totals from House Day, as well as the Lockdown Decathlon, were then all combined to decide the overall winners of the House Cup. This year, Newman House took the Crown, having performed exceptionally well throughout!

Congratulations to everyone for the dedication and commitment shown to all House events this year!
