From the Office
Rabbit winners this week are Liam Byng-Maddick and Seb McKee. Both Liam and Seb are two boys who always try hard to follow their Golden rules and at the Outward Bound Camp last Friday they were extremely kind and caring towards their peers, helping those who were struggling with their tents, and more importantly, helping those who were feeling a bit low. They are excellent role models for other boys to follow and are worthy winners of the Rabbit award this week.

St Benedict's Ten Over Tournament Winners

Huge congratulations to our Junior Boys U11 cricket team who won the St Benedict’s Ten Over Tournament. Read the report on each match, as written by cricket coach Martyn Goddard:

Year 3 and 4 Outward BoundYear 3 and 4 Outward Bound

Junior Boys and Girls came together and enjoyed some outward bound activities that were not only fun but proved that with team work and resilience you can achieve anything...including conquering lava flows and extreme shelter building...
News from the Sports Master
This has been quite some week of sport! Since I last wrote the U10s played last Friday. The U10A team travelled to St Benedict’s in Ealing and recorded an excellent 6 wicket victory, while the U10C&D teams travelled to The Beacon and both teams returned with solid wins under their belt.  
Back at school the Year 3 and 4 pupils were enjoying their outward bounds experience. The Year 3 boys and girls enjoyed a day of bushcraft activities involving shelter building, orienteering and lifesaving skills in the pool. The Year 4 pupils all travelled to Summerleaze Lake to take part in sailing, canoeing and team building games. The vast majority of pupils stayed and camped overnight in the school grounds to enjoy more fun and games.
On Saturday the U11A team travelled to St Benedict's to take part in a 10/10 tournament. The whole team played superbly well beating Ealing CC and St Benedict's in the group stages to go through and beat High Wycombe CC in the final by 41 runs.
This week U9 teams played Gayhurst on Tuesday with the U9B&D picking up good wins by 64 runs and 23 runs respectively. While on Wednesday the U11 teams played Long Close and St George’s with all teams recording fantastic wins.

News from the Chess Master
Of late every week brings more success. Harry and Meghan may have been tying the knot this weekend, and Conte may have been putting one over on Mourinho, but my focus, along with the focus of several Claires Court boys was on the Delancey Megafinals in Newbury and High Wycombe.
In Newbury on Saturday, Josh Sharma stormed through as "Supremo" in the U9 section with Aaran Hitschmann joining him in qualifying for the Southern Gigafinal. Also through in fine form was Samuel Tschiesche, who finished the day as joint 2nd in the Under 10 section. On Sunday, the Suriarachchi brothers, Moksha and Kanishka, both qualified from their respective sections in High Wycombe.
Very well done to all the Claires Court boys who took part over the two days.
The Regional Gigafinals are on 30th June for U7-U10 and 1st July for U11-U18. The Gigafinals can be entered through this link: Gigafinals
