House Notes

HOUSEMASTERS: Mr. G. White. Mr. H. Tempest, Mr. J. E. Bishop, Mr. G. Fogg.
HOUSE PREFECTS: L. Boddy, R. Howitt, M. Hobday.

Since the last issue of the GOLDONIAN, we have said goodbye to two of our boys, Norman Culliford, and Prefect R. Moss
who were very popular with the house. We wish them every success in their new life in the "outside" world. We welcome to
Cairns House, lan Sangster and Raymond Boswell, who came to Goldings from W.N.T.S., and hope they like their new
surroundings. In foobtall, Cairns fought their way into the Cup semi-final and a very good game, including extra time,
ended in a draw of 11 after Kessack scored from a pass by Baggaridge. Our opponents. Somerset House the League leaders,
won the replay by 2 goals to 1, Morgan scoring for Cairns this time. In the League, we hold fourth position.
A word of congratulation must be given to Prefect Howitt on his excellent goal-keeping, for he has saved many shots that
looked certain goals, and our position in the League is very largely due to his good play.
Our Junior XI are still heading the Junior League table having won every game, their goal average now being 143 for and
10 against. They have, also, great hopes of winning the Junior Cup Final. At the time of writing Cairns hold top position in
the inter-house Billiards competition, thanks to our four successful players, Walker, Baggaridge, McLean and S. Dean.
Keep it up, boys! After a lapse of many months Cairns have at last succeeded in winning a Good Conduct Supper again. This
was mostly due to the boy's who gained special mention in school work. Well done, those boys! The standard of conduct is
steadily rising but there is still plenty of room for improvement. On behalf of all in Cairns House,
I send greetings to all Old Boys, at home or abroad.

House Notes

Housemaster: Mr. J. H. Clarke
House Captain: Peter Howe
Group Leaders: John Allen, David Fall
Colours: Red and Black
Welcome to Goldings and Cairns, Paul Talbot, from Borley near Sudbury in Suffolk, Frank Cooke from Barkingside,
Gilbert Brown from Glasclune Stephen Williams (Rusty) from Clacton, and Robert Willbourne from Leigh on sea May
their stay be happy and prosperous.
Farewell to Tony Wright, ex House Captain, who left to take up an apprenticeship in his trade.In this fast moving world
today, fast cars, moon shots and beat music are slow when compared with the way time flies at school, and again the Editor
is breathing down our necks for our notes. Coming back from summer holiday we found the weeks ahead were to be very
active. First we had the swimming sports, in which we came second, closely followed by the athletics in which we won the
senior event and were runners up in the junior section. John Allen won the Victor Ludorum for the seniors. Well done.
Football started very well, and our seniors have won all matches played so far, but the juniors have not been so lucky,
although they have all tried very hard.
Prize giving Day went off very well, and our Robert (Hendry) was presented with his Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award. In
our 'Little Wimbledon' tennis competition, David Fall did remarkably well to reach the final, but was beaten into second
place by Keith McSweeney of Somerset. We are lagging behind in the continuous Queens' Cup competition, although over
the last week or two we have improved, but are still too far behind to offer a real challenge to the leaders. Our sitting room
has improved a lot
through the hard work done by Michael Longman and Allan Bayliss, likewise the toilets which are maintained by David
Gallagher and John Daglish. With the dancing season now in full swing the demand for clean shirts, hair cream and trouser
is very great, and Friday evenings are full of activity. Christmas 1964, is upon us, and as usual we in Cairns would like to
wish everyone, near and far, a very merry Christmas, and a happy New Year.
