The last year has been a particularly successful one for the house, in that by the end of the year we held all the house trophies—the Swimming Cup, the Merit Shield, the Games Cup and the Athletics Shield.

Everyone fought and worked hard for these trophies, and now, after winning them, I'm sure everyone will strive to keep them, keeping up the house tradition of having at least one entry for every event and thus, win or lose, gaining valuable points for the house.  So remember this year -  whether you can win or not - enter and gain points for your house. 

               The results of games, 1956-57, are as follows:  


Senior Boys :
  Football 
  Cricket 

Senior Girls :         
  Hockey  
  Netball  

Junior Boys :         
  Football 
  Cricket 

Junior Girls:         
  Hockey
  Netball

On behalf of the officials of Walton House I welcome all new members to Walton House.

The year commenced by the strengthening of the contingent of house prefects.  In previous years Walton House has struggled to put forward senior teams in football and cricket, but now the senior section of the house is strengthened by the members who have moved into the fourth year, giving Walton House a fighting chance for the Games Cup.

In the senior football, cricket and cross-country matches, Walton was at the bottom of the table, but was compensated by winning the senior netball and tennis matches and attained second position in hockey.

Walton House, although weak in the senior section of the house, is strong in the junior section.  The junior soccer team drew, with the junior cross-country and cricket teams going on to win.  In all the girls' junior matches, netball, hockey and rounders, Walton House made a draw.

Although Walton House in previous years have not attained any particular merits for games, we hope to see Walton House with their strengthened numbers again reach the top of the ladder of success.
