The Summer Concert and Leavers’ Valetes on Thursday evening was an occasion of great warmth and lovely celebration. The concert showcased the versatility and range of talents at the school and included a number of performances of great charm and pleasing confidence. My thanks to Miss Huber for putting together such an impressive collection of musical pieces. My thanks also to Mr Holt and Ms Laatz for the beautifully chosen words about their tutees which showed just how well they knew and understood the children. Above all, though, the occasion was about the children who are leaving the school who are the source of enormous pride to us all. Their parents have been hugely supportive and I am very grateful for that support.
Today, between 12:00 and 12:30, a number of our pupils will pass through the school gates for the last time as pupils of St Christopher’s. They take with them strong foundations for future success, interests which will make their lives rich, and the values which will serve them so very well in their future schooling and beyond. Perhaps most important of all, though, are the lasting friendships they have forged. We wish them every success and happiness as they embark on the next exciting adventure in their life.
I wish each and every child, teachers, staff, parents and grandparents a very happy and sunny Summer.
