26th January 2018 | In Headmaster's Newsletter
This week saw the start of our parent lecture series and we were delighted to welcome Maz from the Self Esteem Team, who not only holds a world title in Taekwondo, but is also a leading self-esteem speaker who addressed nearly 100 parents on Monday night. We hope that all who attended gained an insight into how you can support your children to navigate the fast-paced, busy and socially complex lives of modern childhood. We look forward to bringing you news of our next speaker very soon.
I was fortunate to witness some beautiful performances in our Musical Theatre concert on Tuesday and was very proud of every student who took part from Years 3–8. The standard of performance was extremely high and I am grateful to Mrs Patterson and Mr Fisher for their hard work in putting this lovely concert together.
We were also lucky enough on Thursday to see the Dining Hall transformed into Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Dining Hall complete with Butter Beer, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans and some magical balloon entertainment. All boarders gamely entered into the spirit of the evening and many looked uncannily like members of Gryffindor instead of Galahad. I would like to thank Mrs Irons and the Boarding and Catering Teams for putting on a wonderful evening.
