Head's Words Summer Term Week 8
I hope all have enjoyed a beneficial break whether involved in various activities or simply putting your feet up.
The U13 pupils enjoyed a successful tour to North Devon and I am delighted to report that they were praised for their behaviour and manners around their Holiday Homes, well done boys.
Our Senior Quadruple Scull has put its marker down for contention at Henley Royal Regatta by winning the Championship Quad Event at the National Schools Regatta, we follow their progress with eager anticipation.
This Wednesday I was lucky enough to be at the Regional ISA Athletics Championships supporting our athletes, a number of great performances and congratulations to all who competed.
We have completed the marking of the exam papers and the boys should have brought them home for you to sign, next week we will send out their grade card and we will be discussing any problems with individual families.
I hope you have booked the 25 to visit our Fete, it promises to be another grand occasion.
Along with my last quote about how we need to experience failure to move forwards, the great man said-
"Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even." Muhammad Ali.
