No Pain... ...no gain!

When I first arrived at Orley Farm, X-Country day was kept a closely guarded secret as we tended to see a surprising lift in 'off games' notes and a queue to see the nurses that would rival one that you see on the M25! However, since introducing our Thinking Skill, Resilience - this is no longer the case!
This year, Miss Hehir wanted to create more of a 'celebration' atmosphere in which Houses really get behind all abilities aiming to encourage everyone to live out one of our values - 'do your best to be your best'
And they're off...
Muscles are made to be worked and it's extraordinary how the brain can overcome those messages that tempt us to give up...throughout life, we're going face uphill battles...X-Country can teach us to push through...
To the line...they pushed!
A great run from Tani...
Ollie had the hare in his sights and then cruised past...
A new feature this year was the introduction of a hare...bonus points for catching it motivated everyone. However, in this race the Mr Du Plessis took things a little literally!

Pain is something that needs to be felt for a million reasons...firstly, it tells us that we're alive!

Whilst everyone was running for personal pride, the House Cup was also at stake here and this added a healthy additional motivation to the mix...
Congratulations to Broadrick who were overall winners today, Mrs Gascoigne was suitably attired to inspire her House in a fetching high viz yellow coat...and was delighted with the result.

"We've put in a great deal of training for this event and I'm delighted that this is evident in the result!"
