Company Section March 2018
Recent weeks have seen Company Section boys taking part in a number of District competitions, with more to follow in the weeks ahead.
The District Masterteam Quiz sees companies hosting a general knowledge quiz amongst their own boys before sending off the results to organisers to see how boys have fared against those from other companies who compete with the same questions.
At our night, it was the trio of Varnit Gupta, Tom Hamilton and Nathan Alexander who proved victorious, and we now await the overall results to see how they measured up against other companies.
The same format is used for the District Scripture Knowledge Quiz, which this year saw boys studying the first four chapters of Mark's Gospel. Again, we await the results with interest.
Other competitions on the horizon are the District Badminton Competition, to be held at Scotstoun, and the Tenpin Bowling Competition. As the defending District Champions, we'll be hoping for some strong performances in order to boost our chances of retaining the title.
For the most senior boys in the Company, the focus has been on completing their Queen's Badge record books ahead of the residential course to be held towards the end of March.
That's the final requirement for boys looking to earn the badge, which we hope will happen at our 113th Annual Inspection and Display, which will be held in the large hall on Friday, 18th May, beginning at 7:00pm.
Ahead of that we are also looking forward to the second Service for Uniformed Organisations of the session, which will take place at the Church on Sunday, March 18th, beginning at 10:30am.
