The first school term for 2019 finishes on Friday15 March 2019 - traditionally Founders Day.

Founders Day starts off with a Founders Day Service in the War Memorial Capel at 07:45am.
Thereafter ODs can participate in various activities with the current pupils.

These include:

  • The Avenue Mile
  • Shooting
  • Tug-of-War
  • Basketball
  • Debating
  • Cricket
  • Tennis
  • Sailing
  • Waterpolo
  • Indoor rowing
  • Touchies, and 
  • Hockey

ODs interested in participating in any of these events are welcome to contact the OD Secretary ([email protected]), who can put them in contact with the various OD captains of the different sports.
Founders Day participating ODs are also welcome to a lunch hosted by the school in the Dayboy dining area between 1 and 2pm on Founders Day.
