News This Term - Week 4
It is always worth recognising boys who have gone the extra mile to present their well-researched work in a thoughtful, organised and engaging way. Head Master’s Credits were awarded this week for their colourful science diaries. More of the same, please.
Raffle ticket donations and purchases – thank you
We are extremely grateful for the many parents who donated prizes and purchased raffle tickets this week despite the postponement of the PA Quiz Night. Thank you to the boys for selling so efficiently, whatever the weather threw at them along the way.
The boys had a tough set of fixtures against old foes Tower House on Wednesday, in the glorious afternoon sun.
The whole school gathered for Mass
The whole school gathered for Mass at the Oratory Church on Thursday. Thank you in particular to the Schola who were singing together in the Oratory for the first time this year they sang Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus and the Gloria from Terry’s Mass in C.
The Form 3 and 4 boys spent Monday at Painshill Park in the Surrey Hills. The aim of the day was team building alongside den building, fire building and running free for a day. Excellent
Robitocs Club saw the boys navigate mazes.
Each boy in Forms 3 and 4 is heard reading for approximately 15 minutes per day, for which many thanks to Mrs Gilfeather and Mr Hunter. Form 8 boys will be invited to apply to be reading prefects next week with those selected being paired up to hear the younger boys read over lunch.
Individual photographs and sibling photographs were taken by Gillman and Soame on Thursday, and the boys were all very well-turned out.We will circulate the link for ordering of photographs once they have been processed by G & S.
The first fixtures played
At assembly this morning, the boys were reminded that during the upcoming sporting year they will meet victory and defeat, and are expected to treat both imposters with equity and dignity: “play hard, play fair, play to win, respect the referee…have fun”.
Energy and optimism abound at the dawn of any new academic year, and this year was more energetic and optimistic than usual as the School reconvened after a long summer break at 8.00am on Wednesday.
Congratulations to all boys who have been awarded their music and LAMDA certificates from the summer term.
