House Notes

The Spring term is nearly over and the time has come for us to write our House Notes again. First, we would like to welcome
Thomas Walmsley, our Irish friend, also George Wallace and Peter Copping. We did quite well in boxing. We drew with
Buxton and so share the Cup for this year. We are also doing well in football and table tennis. We would like to congratulate
David Hilton on gaining his School Colours for athletics. All Pelham would like to wish the Headmaster and Mrs. Wheatley
and all the staff a very happy Easter.

Once again it is time to look back into our diaries to remind us of the activities we have had this term. Firstly I should like to
welcome the following six boys not only to Pelham House but also to Goldings and hope their stay will be a happy one.
Kevin Man (who joins his two brothers in Pelham), Kenneth Stephens, Brian Stephens, David Powell Robert Unwin, and
John Robson. We are sorry to have to say goodbye to Peter Law who was our cricket team captain. We all wish him the best of
luck in the future and a most successful career.
Last term Pelham managed to win back the most coveted trophy in the School, the Queens' Cup. This term's competition is
wide open and at the time of writing only a few points separate Pelham, Aberdeen, and Somerset, any one of three houses can
carry off the trophy.
In the cricket Inter House competition both Pelham juniors and seniors got into the finals. The juniors were beaten by Aberdeen
juniors but the Seniors won their section by beating Cairns in an exciting game. We did very badly in the Inter House
swimming but we managed to win two events. Charlie Hill won the springboard dive and David Langler won the high dive.
We did much better in the athletics. After a hard struggle Pelham juniors just failed to beat MacAndrew for first place.
Congratulations to Gordon White on not only winning the Victor Ludorum but for gaining half of the junior points!
Well done Gordon and hard luck juniors.
The Inter House football hasn't really started yet but we have had three juniors in the junior 'A'
School team; Ray Hillier (Capt.), Raymond Man, and David Abdi In the Senior 'A' team we are very well
represented by David Langler, Derek Hammond, Ray Hillier, Stephen Howard, Charlie Hill, Dennis Ager, and Billy Campbell
Quite a few Pelham boys received prizes at Prize giving Day namely David Langler, Senior Painter;
Derek Hammond, General Standard; Joey Law, junior Painters; Michael Butt, Senior Bootmakers; Raymond
Man, Intermediate Gardeners; and Christopher Florence, Senior Gardeners.
I should like to finish these notes by wishing Mr. and Mrs. Wheatley and all the staff and boys a very

happy Christmas.
