Sports Shield

This beautiful copper shield was a competition prize across the three sports of Hockey, Lacrosse and Tennis, played between Berkhamsted Girls and St Margaret’s School, Bushey.

The first record shows a win for Berkhamsted and the last a win for St Margaret’s. Results from 1901 – 1930 are recorded in the central column.

The School motto ‘Festina Lente’ (make haste slowly) appears with the tudor rose on the left of the results panel.

‘Sursum Corda’ (in full Sursum Corda Habemus ad Dominum – we lift up our hearts to the Lord) the motto of St Margaret’s, at the time,appears with Marguerite daisies on the right.
