Gosfield School celebrated its 53rd Cut Hedge Cup on Wednesday 27th November. We welcomed several schools from across the county to take part in the event. Celebrating its 53rd consecutive year of the event, which was therefore initiated in 1966 and is one of the many enduring legacies from the School’s long history that continues to shape the school’s ethos.
The Cut Hedge Cup, named after our wonderful estate, is another example of the way that our gorgeous natural environment and the freedom of independence underpins so much of what we do. It was a fantastic day which was enjoyed by participants, teachers and parents. Well done to all that took part in the event, we are very proud.
We welcomed many schools from across the county to compete in the race and it was lovely to see old faces, as well as new. Miss White from Colchester High School commented that it was ‘the first time that I have attended this event and I am impressed with how organised it has been, the children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves’. Our very own Lilia from Year 8 added ‘It was a hard run, but I am pleased that I was able to complete my personal challenge.’
A huge thank you to everyone who made this event possible, especially Ms Dixon and the PE team, alongside those who organised and made it all run so smoothly – Mrs Redfern, Mrs Bowles and Mr Bird. We look forward to the next Cut Hedge Cup, by which time the grass should have re-emerged from the mud!
