Well, where do I start? Our Year 8 Girls (supported by Emilie from Year 7) and our Year 7 Boys Indoor Rowing teams produced some of the best rowing performances I have seen in all my time at CMS. Spirits were high as we left school and headed towards Bryanston School in Blandford for the School Games Finals. The highlight of the journey was timing how long it took us to get from the entrance of Bryanston School to the actual boathouse!!
(over 5 minutes just in case you were interested!)
Each pupil had to take part in an individual row of 2 minutes for the Yr7 boys and 3 minutes for the Yr8 girls. With all the technology wired up, we were able to track each performer's progress throughout the race on large screens, as well as shout words of encouragement to our team mates.
After some tremendous rowing against some of the best from across the county, Cranborne did themselves proud:
Year 8 Girls: Caitlin 1st 746m
Year 8 Girls: Alicia 3rd 725m
Year 7 Boys: Ewan 2nd 505m
Year 8 Girls team: 2nd 4790m (Caitlin, Lucy, Alicia, Emilie)
Year 7 Boys team: 2nd 3759m (Ewan, Josh, Elliot, Hayden)
A HUGE well done to all the pupils. I could not be prouder!
