The art of Tea Duelling, ‘an elegant sport for a civilised age’ comes from the realms of Steampunk and involves contestants duelling with biscuits dunked in hot tea, rather than with swords or guns. This was the third time we have held our Annual Tea Duel and, as always, it was a fun way for the boys to relax after the stress of a week of exams. Our esteemed Tiffen Master even sported a dashing new red top hat for the occasion!!
This year the School Captains, along with captains of various sports and cultural activities, invited their favourite teachers to duel against them in a riveting series of contests! Until this year, no-one has been able to match the prowess of the teachers with Mr Timms and Ms Bruerton taking out the Winner’s title in our first two contests but, this year, the teachers didn’t stand a chance. Despite cooling tea, which necessitated multiple biscuits being called into play, our final two contestants ended up being students with nerves of steel!
Congratulations boys, and enjoy the holidays!!
