Haileybury's 1st IV (Tim Condon, Tom Haslam, James Symes and Tom Hardman, cox: Olly Kent) rowed superbly last Saturday to win the Men's Novice Coxed Fours at the Twickenham Regatta. With a 12-crew entry, the knockout format meant that they had to race (and win) four times. First Putney Town, then Eastbourne College, Brunel University and finally Kingston rowing clubs were duly shown Haileybury rowing's class. The last two races were particularly hard fought and the boys truly deserved their tankards. Well done!

The result was that at the end of the innings we had a total of 15 rounders, averaging a rounder a minute Becca Woodhams became the first victim of 'The Swamp', a rather muddy and wet area just after 4th base. What a reward for scoring

Personal trainer, Gary Johnson, who runs Haileybury's boxercise classes and trains some of the school's sports stars, has come second in the Gobi March, a 158-mile, six-day race across the Gobi Desert. Members of the boxercise classes were so determined to support Gary in his quest that they teamed up to run 230 miles last week across a specially set up track in the school grounds. Gary and the pupils all agreed to use the event to raise money for one of Haileybury's chosen charities, The Attlee Foundation, set up in memory of former Prime
