Head of school’s Comment

This week in Assembly our Head Boy and Girl, together with our House Captains, spoke to our students about their roles and the effect of their service on their personal development. All six students spoke with great confidence and clarity, giving practical examples of their different experiences throughout the year. They have provided a wonderful model to our younger students of leadership, yet also of the everyday practice of living our values.
The fine examples provided by our 6th Class were continued, as our 5th Class students gave speeches to the Primary for next year’s leadership positions. They were given a short time to prepare their speech in the morning, which was a quote from the founder of our school, Mr Leon MacLaren; Service is the finest and noblest work that someone can undertake . There was very little to separate the children and it was inspiring to see such a depth of maturity and passion.
