This week has been striking for the demonstration of resilience that has been noticeable throughout the School. Most obviously in the preparation leading up to Open Day on Sunday. The children have had a number of rehearsals where they have been required to perform one part of a piece a number of times to get it right, or to wait while another group of children are practising to get their part correct. Some children have had to forgo a favourite lesson to attend a rehearsal. In other situations children have had to face the challenge of overcoming an upset to perform or represent the School. In all cases the children have really worked to dig deep and go the extra mile even when they would have liked to stop. I am sure that their effort will be reflected in their whole hearted performance on Sunday.
