Somes House – joint Interhouse Champion 2022 with Flower's House All of that has been the happening outside Somes House, either through College or outside the gates. The following is a glimpse of what the students have achieved through the interhouse competitions. INTERHOUSE EVENTS Open Interhouse Competitions Swimming was a victim of Covid-19 at the start of the year, but we did have a serious swim team of Jacob Clements, James Drury, Matthew Flint, Callum Gard, George Grace, Finlay Sharpe, Jackson Grace and Mun Chi Jager competing. Hopefully, 2023 will see it return. Athletics was also affected, with only finalists coming out on Athletics Day and no relays. We were 5th overall based on podiums for Tawhiri Cate, Hoani Ifopo-Togia, Louis McKeon, Josh Shannahan, Ihaka Cate, Alf Markham, Sam Chittock, Callum Gard, Armani Lemalu (breaking a College record in the process) and Hopo Leota.

In other open interhouse competitions, the chess team reached the final, where we had a narrow loss to Flower's House. The haka competition made a return after several years, and, likewise, the full school cross country, where we had top-20 finishes by George Howard and Koen Jager in the senior race, Finlay Sharpe and Sam Belcher in the junior race, and Jack Howard, Josh Shannahan and Liam Singer in the U14 race, with Jackson Grace 3rd in the U14 race. Our clay target shooting team was 2nd, with Henry Lassen 2nd and Maurice Gillard 3rd overall, while our team took out the inaugural reading quiz. The two big cultural events of House Music and House Plays were superb evenings for Somes House. William Law pushed the whole House Music from the beginning and brought the small group together, with Jack
