The Rope Cup recipient: L. M. Eglinton
The Rope Cup is for the best all-round young man in the School, the young man who has been most outstanding for personality, leadership, strength of character, a sense of responsibility in performance of duties, scholarship, co-operation with staff and an athletic prowess and record in school activities.
The emphasis is on personal achievement – the best young man on the above points. Much of this could be achieved in his final year and the 2022 recipient is Head Prefect L. M. Eglinton.
Louis has distinguished himself for his intellect, quick wit, inclusive style of leadership and a good sense of humour. He has acquired a broad range of knowledge that he has utilised well in the Cambridge pathway over the last two years.
Louis has been fully committed to School life through the alignment of his words to his actions. He has acted with courage to uphold high expectations most readily seen as a Cricket player and Premier Touch player and in the quality of his interactions with others. He has represented the School with equanimity in all capacities.
As Head Prefect, he has been an exceptional leader, always questioning with purpose and betterment in mind.
Louis has personified the School’s values through his genuine interest in others, together with his sensitivity, kindness, and his understanding that he is part of something bigger than himself. Alongside these more personal attributes, he has achieved well, and in doing so has built strength of character and integrity.
These characteristics along with his humility and empathy have engendered confidence in those around him while earning the respect of staff for knowing who he is, where he belongs and his preparedness to serve others.
