Mr Spanswick's Words Lent 4
I spent two days away from Claires Court Junior Boys this week inspecting another independent school on Compliance and Regulatory matters. It is always a privilege to be allowed to visit and assess other educational institutions and this school was no exception. It also reaffirms to me how lucky I am to be leading such a wonderful school as Claires Court, and as I have said before, it is always very nice to come back!
Our boys have been very busy this week as they always are. We have been learning in assemblies how animals can teach us so many important human qualities in life, and there has been plenty of amusement taking lessons from meerkats, kangaroos and elephants over the past week. I was also able to praise Gursahej Bakshi for his brilliant performance at the ISA National Swimming Gala where he achieved a personal best in the backstroke coming 4th (by 2 milliseconds!) and picking up the bronze medal for the 200m freestyle relay. We are very proud of his efforts.
Our Pupil Voice representatives visited Spinfield primary school in Marlow yesterday to meet their school council and compare notes on how things are done! All the boys found it a worthwhile experience and have come back with some great ideas, which Mr Stay and her team will be sharing with us shortly. Indeed, I have been really impressed at some of the sensible and constructive suggestions that have come through on my School Development Plan which your sons have had access to, and have been editing.
The rest of the week I will tell in pictures as they often tell better stories than I could possibly hope to! I hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend and manage to stay out of the rain!
