Lord Lieutenant’s Inter School Challenge
16 boys were selected to represent NTC at the Lord Lieutenant’s Inter School Challenge, which is held annually by Challenger Troop at Kings Bastion, Brompton Barracks, Gillingham, Kent. This took place on Tuesday 12th July 2016. Ten schools were in attendance and the 2 teams that we submitted from NTC did themselves, and the school, proud coming 8th and 6th respectively. The boys all gave 100% and were a credit to themselves, their teams and indeed, NTC. We received 3 additional commendations for our ‘tight team work and team ethics’ and achieved 2 personal bests – one for the climbing wall which went to Alex in 25 seconds and the second for the spider web event…we needed to beat 53 seconds and smashed it in 20 seconds!
Personal challenges were overcome by a number of students and this was tested to the hilt by the climbing wall. Huge praise to all of the boys who managed to complete it, some more than once. Team Leaders were recognised by the event and these were awarded to Alex and Jamie.
The rain managed to hold off and we were blessed with a beautiful day, lovely barbeque lunch and fantastic ‘team’ efforts.
