Mr Wilding's Words Lent Week 10
The extraordinary blossoming of activity in school may have been cunningly planned (ahem, ahem), but to have nature's support through the brilliance of sunshine provision has been a real bonus.
Today's return of Year 8 to Dorney Court, where they were able to workshop through military drill, through theological debate, through art and drama the life and times of both Roundheads and Cavaliers was a wonderful opportunity for boys and girls to appreciate what teamwork can bring. The photo shows concluding prize giving in the barn complex, adjacent to the church of St James the Less.
We have now concluded our four Discovery Days for new boys to enter school this and next September, in the space created by the various offsite activities taking years 7, 8 and 10 away. Our planting of our Tiny Forest and Jubilee Canopy of 5000 trees at Junior Boys is now complete thanks to Year 10, where we've also added a Nottsward artificial wicket to our two new cricket squares. Thursday evenings Year 11 parent evening completed our conversations to ensure our GCSE pupils are in the finest shape they need to be for their forthcoming exams.
AND finally, I'm really looking forward to Saturday mornings cross-country… I've been put in charge of the BBQ - with 150 sausages and burgers to cook, I'll clearly have my work cut out. Anyone wanting to help can just turn up with an apron and tools, and I'll welcome the company!
With best wishes for a sunny weekend.
