A few months ago a small group of year nine and ten pupils were hand picked to form a charity committee to support an orphanage in Gilgil, Kenya. Isobelle Page is very familiar with the orphanage as she is a Kenyan girl who went to the prestigious prep school, Pembroke House just up the road.
Isobelle and Pippa Before their climb - 7.30am
Isobelle and Pippa, both year 9 Robertson, went away to think of fund raising ideas. They decided to climb Winder eight times in one day which was the equivalent of climbing Mt Kenya. They have managed to secure £1600 thus far and this figure is still rising. This brings the overall total to £3000.If you would like to support their fundraising efforts, please use the following link.
We did it!
Channel 4 showed the horrors of the underprivileged children in Gilgil in the programme ‘unreported world’ a few weeks ago.
The programme featured the orphanage and how important money is for their restart centre in saving children from the dangerous streets.
This achievement will change the lives of many children; something Pippa and Isabelle can be very proud of.
Congratulations to Emily MacMillan (year 10, Robertson) who convincing won the Independent Schools Athletics 1500m title on Saturday. In a field of around 20 schools at Huntingdon Stadium York, Emily ran her fastest race of the season so far.
Congratulations Emily and we look forward to seeing you run on Sports Day!

30O0 TRAVELLERS’ SERIES ROUND 2 – CARSINGTON WATER Amalgamated with Laser Vago and National 12 Opens A long drive down on Friday night saw us ensconced in yet another Travelodge at Ashbourne for the night before a short drive to Carsington Water the next morning. A great wind blew for us with a gusty Force ¾ which was ideal for all our crews. Carsington members were very welcoming as we rigged our boats, sampled the breakfast menu (3 races back to back starting at 12.30 don’t leave time for lunch!). Briefing over with the simplest of courses (yet some of the Vagos still have to learn their Port from their Starboard) and we were out on the water for the first of 3 approximately 45 minute races sharing a simultaneous start with the Vagos. Sadly only six boats on the start line with our two 3000s being the only travellers to attend the Open.
The first race saw Nick Arran pinned to leeward of a great start by Katherine Fleck(L) and Chay Turner-Richard (P) but slowly they crept out from under and despite some great sailing they managed to keep ahead. Meanwhile James Thomas (H) and Brad Moss (W) were making steady progress up the course. Finding the best wind downwind made the real difference all day and Nick Arran was able to do so more effectively than the Sedbergh V3000. All boats found some fantastic gusts and all experienced some great 3 sail reaching legs during the afternoon. In the second race a Vago managed to get the best start at the Pin end which none of us had spotted but we managed to claw that back and consign the Vagos to where they belong. The third race was more of the same and we all returned to the shore with a feeling of having experienced a great afternoon’s sailing with the wind just right – not too strong and not too light. James and Brad had successfully finished their first three races in the 3000 and only a couple of wet dips!
Camping at the Knockerdown campsite was enlivened by the menagerie of dwarf goats, ostriches, guinea pigs, donkeys et al….. a healthy BBQ of locally farmed meat and home cooked cakes set the team up for a cold night in our tents. All were happy with their results with Katherine and Chay in 2nd to Nick, while James and Brad were 3rd in the 3000.
Sunday dawned with the lake trying its best to be a mirror but the race officer attempted a start and we even got race 4 off to a start with the start line a little busier with the arrival of the National 12 fleet. Sadly the wind died to nothing and the PRO flew the abandon flag. During our return to the shore, the 3000s picked up some wind and spent a happy 30 minutes practising our gennaker technique. When we got back to the shore the wind had tempted the other sailors out again so we turned round and completed our final two races. Since the wind was significantly lighter the 3000 found keeping up with the Vagos on handicap much harder and unfortunately Katherine and Chay lost the 2nd place on handicap to the leading Vago. However in the overall travellers series, Katherine and Chay now have a 1st and 2nd which puts them in a strong position as we think ahead to the 3000 Nationals at Grafham in early June.
