I rather enjoyed a walk around the school on Thursday afternoon for what is generally termed a ‘Learning Walk’ but I prefer to call a snoop. As I would expect there was a calmness in the Prep Room with the only detectable noise being Paganini’s Centone di Sonate in the background. Strategy Club provided a slightly different atmosphere with the babble of excitement as four girls pitted their wits against each other in a game of rummy. The delights of ‘Stratego’ were being enjoyed by a mixed group and dominoes by a throng of boys. There were other clubs taking place and the school was still a hive of activity at 5.00pm. The aim of our After School Clubs is to provide the range which will cater for all ages interests; we are not there yet, but I think we are getting there.
Today it is the birthday of one of our great philosophers, Winnie the Pooh, or at least of A.A. Milne, his creator. Winnie the Pooh’s words carry great wisdom: ‘Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why they call it the present’. It is worth encouraging your children to read Winnie the Pooh or some of you might take great pleasure from reading A.A. Milne to them.
Have a super weekend.
