Our virtual St Christopher’s Day Service on Thursday saw performances from ensembles and a soloist.

It was a tough cricket fixture against Cumnor House on Wednesday, but lovely to see so many boys enjoying their cricket, just as it was good to see the senior girls enjoying success in a close encounter with Brighton College Lower School. Some of our sports teams feature in next Tuesday's edition of The Argus, as part of a supplement celebrating the return of inter school fixtures. For a number of pupils, these fixtures were a perfect opportunity to escape the rigours of study after internal and Scholarship examinations. I wish all success as they wait for results. We could do with summer arriving soon, but in between the showers there has been plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities.

In the playground, as I write, some of our Year 4 girls are having a lovely time launching model planes provided by Mr Stead. Indeed, I could not resist a break from my keyboard to go and join in – they flew rather well. On return to my office there was a queue of children waiting to show me work that has been commended; its range and variety just a snapshot of the wonderful work your children are doing.

I wish you all a very restful and happy weekend.
