Merit Award

At each Guest Night Dinner we ask the Head Teacher of the School to announce the School’s recommendation for the recipient of the Mal de Mer Merit Trophy for the year. Some Mals may be slightly unsure as to the full detail of this and it is as well that we again place on record the importance which we – the Mal de Mer Club – attach to this annual award.

It is our premier contact with the School and an important link between the Islanders and the Club since many earlier holders of the trophy will now be meeting us in our various sports or in the shops/hotels on the islands. The award is accompanied by a cup and cheque donated by our President. The cup was introduced in 1956. Unfortunately our archives do not show the donor but the first name engraved upon it was J. R. Williams.


Mal de Mer Merit Trophy:

The Mal de Mer Merit Trophy is not presented for scholastic success, it is not even competed for.

It is awarded to the boy or girl who over his or her school career, has contributed something of merit, by his or her example and personal effort made to help others.
