Events at St Petroc’s

Children from St Petroc’s School Bude donned their scariest Halloween costumes and enjoyed an evening of spooky fun at their annual Autumn Fair held on 24th October.  Apple bobbing, biscuit decorating, piñata, popcorn making, balloon modelling and a lantern decorating competition were a huge hit with the children as was the star attraction of the evening, Mr Cool Hand Luke, who entertained the crowd with his fire-eating juggling act.

Headmaster, Dan Thornburn, said: “The children had made a superb effort with their costumes and decorating their lanterns; it was a tremendously fun evening to end a busy and successful half term”. 

Scary Girls

Meanwhile, St Petroc’s U11 boys travelled the long journey to St Christopher’s School in Totnes on 22nd October for an ISA (Independent Schools Association) 7-a-side Tag Rugby Tournament.  The boys managed some good wins against local schools which took them through to the semi-final.  A closely fought contest with hosts and eventual tournament winners St Christopher’s, after defeating Polwhele School in the quarter finals, secured them third place overall.  

Ben Hilton, Head of Games, said: “Unfortunately the boys didn’t quite manage to produce the form of some previous matches but nonetheless it was a spirited performance to the end and an excellent learning curve. Playing tag rugby was a new experience to most of our players but nonetheless they did themselves proud.”
