Swimming Gala Finals 2015

ImageOn Wednesday 18th  February we held our Inter-House Swimming Gala and it was lovely to see so many parents coming along to support the event. House spirit was riding high with students artistically adorning their bodies with face paints in blue, yellow and red and house flags proudly hoisted in their respective seating areas. The day began with Eagles in the lead by 50pts after the heat stages, Dolphins in 2nd and Phoenix in 3rd.

There were excellent performances by many students in all year groups, but a special mention goes out to Louis Tether in Form 1, who in his first Northfields swimming gala snatched the title of Junior Victor Ludorum away from last year’s winner Noah Gruter. There were also great performances from Arissa Daby, Kayla Besson and Aurelie Tang Yan in the younger year groups.

The Upper Six truly enjoyed their last Northfields gala, making the day competitive yet fun at the same time. There were some brave performances from students not usually known for their swimming prowess, such as Adrien Lalanne, David Hardy, Jean Armand Du Plessis and Melanie Loisel. All who participated with pride for their houses and made the most of the day.

However the day belonged to Eagles who romped away with the house cup beating their nearest rivals by 60pts!! Since the institutionalisation of houses at Northfields, Dolphins have never been defeated at a swimming gala so this year was a real milestone in the school’s history.

Congratulations to Eagles for their historical overthrow!

Founders' Day 2014
Image"On Friday 24th October, Northfields held its Annual Founders' Day. This is the day of celebration, one where students are applauded, recognised and praised for their hard work. The event consisted of numerous speeches, and musical items. The prizes awarded were for all the hard work of the previous academic year. The first three and the best sports girl and sports boy are awarded in each form. Those who sat International Exams such as the IGCSE and A-levels received awards for being best in the subject. We also award special prizes which are kept secret; when announced it is great to see the surprise it brings to the winners. Often these awards include leading personalities, outstanding commitment on the sports field, signs of high improvement and overall excellence. This annual event is always great for our community, as it reveals the talent, dedication and continuous strive for excellence, which has been implanted within the student body."
