Enjoying Balmoral!

Two of our very own boys, James Fitch and James Poland thoroughly enjoyed a few days out of their hectic exam preparations to visit the King’s Hall where the Balmoral Show was in full swing, perhaps for the last time at the city centre show grounds.  The pupils of Years 10 and 11 respectively were assisting, as per tradition, with the scoring of the sheep shearing competition. Boys from RBAI have officiated in this competition for many years since the maths department revolutionised the scoring by creating a formula to accurately keep track of the competitors’ progress.  The tradition was very much enjoyed by the two boys who soaked up the atmosphere of Northern Ireland’s largest Agricultural Show.
