Terra Nova School’s Adelaide Sillar shoots a perfect score!

Year 6 pupil Adelaide Sillar – a member of the Terra Nova 1st VIII shooting team has scored a ‘possible’ – a perfect score in shooting, yet another clear indication that TN remains the dominant force in the prep school’s national shooting competitions.

Terra Nova School again scooped top honors in the National Preparatory Schools 10 metre Air Rifle competition in 2013.  After entering two teams in the national championships, Terra Nova’s 1st VIII team – aged between 10 and 13 – retained the St David’s Shield as national champions.

The Terra Nova 2nd VIII placed second overall in the national competition and retained the Lord Roberts Bowl as the top 2nd VIII team in the country.

Master IC Shooting, Nigel Curtis, commented  “This is a special performance by Adelaide who shot the card in training and, as far as records show, this score has not been achieved before in a prep school with 10 metre air rifle on the Olympic targets.  It is a school record and an unofficial national record and cannot be beaten.  Very well done to Adelaide”.
