Boys from year 8 and 9 attended the Devon Winter Games at Exeter University on Tuesday April 1 to represent the College in table tennis and hockey.
The hockey players played really well and came 3rd in their group, unfortunately not qualifying for the final. BUT: they won the fair play award!
The table tennis players worked incredibly hard all day in a long tournament and ended up coming 2nd place overall.
The festival of sport was a great event with all the pupils meeting an Olympian Zara Dampney from volleyball.
Fair Play and Good Results at Devon Winter Games
LOT 13 – A short film written by David Quantick
Lot 13 is a dark comedy short written by David Quantick, charting the increasingly bizarre bidding war for the mysterious auction lot. The film stars Simon Evans and Sanjeev Kohli with Meat Bingo regular Joe Hancock, plus new collaborators O’Shea & O’Gaukroger. The producer is Moose Allain. The composer for Lot 13 is Nick Harvey.
Students Dale Pendlebury (2nd camera and some VFX) and Stuart Smith (production assistant) both helped the production get made. Teachers Sally Wright and Penny Froggatt also appeared as extras, with Penny also doing the makeup. Head of Media, Thomas Stanier, did sound as well as helping to produce the film.
The film was shot at the incredible Salem Chapel in East Budleigh, whose staff were exceedingly supportive.
