Archers went head-to-head at the first ever archery competition to take place between the Boys’ and Girls’ Divisions. It was held in the Boys’ Division gym in the run-up to the Christmas holidays.
There was a strong sense of friendly competition as both Divisions fielded their best archers for the tournament. Eight girls and nine boys took part in mixed age groups.
The archers were split into groups of three, with pairs of groups competing for one or two points in each round. Pupils fired three arrows each in a round and added up the cumulative score of everyone in their group to find out which group came out on top.
Boys’ Division teacher Mr Howard was the referee for the event and kept the scores.
At the end of the competition, he announced that the result was a close 10-8, with the girls victorious.
There are hopes that the boys vs girls archery competition will become a half-termly event, swapping between the Girls’ and Boys’ Divisions, which will allow the boys to seek their revenge early in the New Year.
