This year we have once again proved ourselves capable of great achievement by winning all four sports trophies, and it will be an event of great importance when our representatives receive them from Mr. Cyril Washbrook on the platform at Speech Day. This will be the climax of a year of fierce competition, with the final results very close. The most commendable feature is the way increasing proportions of House members have contributed small successes to the final all-round triumph of the House, although deserving credit must be given to those individual members who have by their outstanding prowess and willingness to serve, set the very high tone and standard of performance.

It is anticipated that those who have this year assumed important and responsible positions in the organisation of house affairs will maintain these excellent standards and advance our prosperity still further.

In the competition for the Work Shield, we occupied only third place, so this is a department of house activity where there is room for improvement on the part of every member.

On behalf of Lees House we extend a welcome to all 'Blue' newcomers, and we would like to remind them that Lees House is steadily building up a fine tradition for them to follow. Although last year was not quite so successful for our house as previous years, we still hold the Merit Shield, and in sport the Junior boys distinguished themselves by gaining the maximum points possible in all competitions. We must remember, though, that even if Lees House wins no trophies at all this year, it will not be really important so long as we can say "We did our utmost."

On behalf of the officials and members of last year's Walton House, I should like to extend a warm welcome to all those who have joined us this year.

In previous years Walton House has never been able to boast numerous senior members but this year we hope to be able to strengthen our senior teams from members who have moved into the fourth year.

Although it is some years since Walton has attained any particular merits in games, we did manage to come very close second for the Games Cup this year. Despite this fact we did not do too well in the athletics or the swimming.

Last year we again tried very hard for the Merit Shield and did not quite make it, but this year we hope that, with the advent of the new members to help us in both work and play and with the promotion of some juniors to strengthen our senior section, Walton House will show that they still have a very strong fighting spirit.

BARBARA JONES, 6A Lit., Secretary.
