School Colours – a reinstated tradition

In the School’s end-of-term assembly on 12 December, Headmaster Martin Collier awarded full colours and school colours to pupils for their success over recent months and years. 

St John’s is a school that recognises both participation and excellence, and awards colours at two levels – full colours and school colours. Full colours represent those who have contributed to the School at a consistent and high level. School colours are reserved for those with outstanding ability and excellence at representative level.

There was once a long tradition of awarding an embroidered cap for school colours and the Headmaster reintroduced that tradition during the assembly, by presenting a new cap to Cassie Hughes (Upper Sixth, Gloucester House) for her outstanding ability and sporting excellence.

Cassie has set a great example to all hockey players at the School. She has played first team hockey for five years, captaining the 1st XI for two. The Headmaster commented, “As a player Cassie has been the equal of any on the circuit; with outstanding technical ability, force of character and great leadership qualities. Her potential has recently been recognised with the award of a merit scholarship at a prestigious American university. In her attitude and play, Cassie embodies the very, very best of sport at St John’s.”
