A prize given by locally billeted soldiers shows what qualities they valued.

The Piggott Schools: The School Challenge Cup

The Cup was presented by the Officers and Men of the 83rd and 84th Companies of the Royal Engineers, Feb. 13th, 1915. It is held yearly, for one year only, by the best boy in the school in regard to conduct, knowledge, manliness, and sports. Half marks are given by the Headmaster and half marks by the votes of the boys themselves. It has been awarded this year to Thomas Dover.
