Wednesday

The day started with a wake up call at 7.55 followed by breakfast at 8.25. In the morning we had two activities one after the other. The Village Quiz consists of 25 cryptic questions about the village which saw groups of children running around Molveno searching for answers to questions about the village. The standard this year was very high and the winning team were Mr Thomas' group. The next event was the Basketball Tournament. This was hotly contested by 4 teams and was finally won by the Roberts team (Hobson, Corsini, Glanville, Kuzntesov, Wood and Hatoum). In the afternoon the football squad had an intensive training session led by Mr Thomas and ably (?) assisted by Father Alexander. Whilst the footballers were footballing, the rest of us went on a walk along the river up to the waterfalls where the majority thoroughly enjoyed getting very wet! Before supper, everyone had the opportunity to swim in the hotel pool or enjoy some free time.

Following several re counts and independent adjudication by Mr Thomas, the results of the Swimming Gala are that Mr Gasiorek's team bravely led by Hallam won with a score of 38 points followed very closely by Father Alexander's team on 37 points.

Tomorrow at 6pm is the annual Bennies V Molveno football match. Watch this space for the final score!
