Sports Nutrition, Blind Wine-tasting next week’s fixtures and more


This week, our resident cricket professional Gavin Griffiths will be giving a talk on Sports Nutrition on Wednesday at 12:30pm in the Library. This is a must for all aspiring sportsmen and women.

Blind wine-tasting

I have attached a copy of the details for the Blind-Wine tasting evening. In conjunction with Catalan wines, the evening will take place at Waterloo Rugby Club on Saturday 26th November. The cost of tickets is just £12 per person and all proceeds go towards the Portugal Rugby Tour. We hope as many as possible attend what promises to be a fantastic occasion. Tickets are available from the School Office.
