The first Thursday of the term saw the infamous Kingham Mass take place. All students run the cross-country course and everyone’s position carries points. The House with the highest point’s average wins. The senior team have won this trophy for the last two years so the pressure was on them to attain the hatrick. Last year Nikita Cretu came in second place and so he was out to further improve on this and gain top spot if possible.

Being about to take off for the Arctic again reminds me that I never reported on last year's expedition!

Sheffield House had gained a reputation, over the last few years, for producing the worst cacophony in the old House Shout competition. This year the school revamped the contest and made it a much more serious event where houses would be measured solely on the quality of the sound they made.
