Friday 19th May
A lovely result for Rizwan, Harry and Zain (all from Year 8) with wins in the National Independent Schools Religious Studies Association Competition. Their “passionate and carefully considered essays” examined what this academic subject means for their own understanding of the world.
On that theme, do have look in the Foyer as there is a fine collection of model Mosques from the senior boys’ homework. Thanks for parent support with any encouragement and construction (one model even has electrics). The Mosques are giving the recent Motte and Bailey Castles a run for their money!
Both competition and joy here today with our annual Music Festival and House Music Competition: Mr Meyers skilfully brought together our talent in strings and guitar, piano, wind, brass, percussion and composition in celebration and performance.
We will list the prize-winners next week and thanks to Mr Stephen Willis, Director of Music at The Abbey School in Reading, who attended as our external adjudicator. We are fortunate to have terrific parental support for Music with a remarkable 80% of our boys choosing to specialise in a musical instrument. Please do speak to, or email, Mr Meyers if you would like your boy to take up an instrument.
At the weekend we have the Homefield Association May Ball so thank you in advance especially to Lizby and Chris Sharpe and the Association Committee for organising the event at Kingswood Golf Club. We look forward to joining parents for an enjoyable evening.
Have a good weekend.
