As we continue to navigate our way through the school year, we find so many of our House Events and House Games being disrupted, modified, or altogether lost to the misfortune of COVID-19. During Term 2 we cancelled House Games and the Junior School Fun-a-Rama. For both, schedules and Learning Groups proved to be the biggest hurdles, but as the saying goes, “The show must go on!” As a result, our top-flight Junior School House Leaders created a new event, a House Tournament!
For the first House Tournament, we chose Pinball. It is a popular game in PHE, and it is traditionally used as a House Game in Term 1. Last January, over the course of two days, students from Grades 3-7 joined the rest of their Learning Group (grade), and the House Teams battled for 80 minutes in a round-robin tournament. The results of each Grade Level tournament counted towards the final House Tournament results. There was a very impressive display of teamwork and effort from each of the Houses, and in the end, the results were very close.
Final Results from the 2020 Pinball House Tournament:
- 4th – RED
- 3rd – YELLOW
- 2nd – GREEN
- 1st – BLUE
Congratulations to the Blue team for the 2021 Pinball House Tournament victory!
