The 5th Year gathered in Chapel on Friday 12th May to mark the beginning of their study leave. It was a wonderful occasion and I am so grateful to the large group of students who made a significant contribution to this service of celebration. Tara Bartell set the tone with a beautiful performance of Danny Boy on the flute. Jonty and Dewi McConnaughie changed the temp with ‘Me and My Shadow’ and the 5th Year Choir sang a very upbeat ‘I’m Yours’. Alice Grundy, Kimberley Punwani and George Flashman spoke of their time at the school over the last three years and Lucy Wilde and Bradley Comber reminded us the very many sporting achievements and talents in this year group. Mr Wignall, gave a heart-felt address in poetic style to warm applause and the service drew to a close with some uplifting jazz from the 5th Year Jazz Band.
My prayers are with them all as they begin this season of examination.
