Friday evening last week saw a large gathering of parents old and new who attended an evening reception by the School’s Board of Governors. The purpose of this event was to greet new parents and to introduce them to the School Board and offer a chance to meet other families. Brief speeches were made by Philip Wolfers, Chairman of the Board, Simon Beissel, the Treasurer, the Headmaster, and by Indu Balachandran, this year’s President of the Parents and Friends Association. The food was a showcase of what the children eat, but morphed into canapÈ-style. And delicious it was too! The School’s Office Bearers from Sixth Class did a marvellous job in unobtrusively and happily serving the food.
Most of the parents had attended class meetings beforehand. These were informative and successful, and thank you to those who attended. Lower First parents were introduced to the School’s values and heard about how they are implemented and practised on a daily basis. There was also a practice of the pause and dedication , which of course the children do many times a day.
Phillip House had a working bee on Sunday under the care of the Tate family: there was a good attendance and lots was done. Very many thanks to all! Tuesday 4th March sees Phillip House hosting the Market Day.
Unbelievably, we are already half way through the term, and the children are working beautifully.
