HEADMASTER’S REFLECTIONS ON THE WEEK


A number of prospective teachers visited the school on Thursday. I always ask visiting teachers about their initial impressions of St Christopher’s and their responses share a few things in common. Without exception they comment on the warmth and friendliness of the teachers and the children. Without fail they mention the buzz and energy of St Christopher’s. They comment on the courtesy of the pupils and they are unfailingly impressed both by the confidence of the older children who act as guides and by the pride they show in their school.

It was lovely to welcome your children back at the beginning of term looking smart and rested after the Easter break. The last time I saw many of them was at Hove Park for the Cross Country run which brings to an end the Lent Term. There are pictures within of a competition in which participation is as important as success and in which the children show great support for each other. At the end of this term our Year 8 pupils will leave the school well prepared for their senior schools. I wish every one of them a happy, successful and fulfilling term, a wish I extend to every child in the school, from Reception to Year 8.

HEADMASTER’S REFLECTIONS ON THE WEEK

A windswept Hove Park witnessed the whole of the Prep School competing in our House Cross Country Competition this morning. The sea of red competitors, a little chilled but very excited, took up the challenge of the course with relish. Some are born to run the longer distance, some are not, but it was heartening to see so many children enjoying the exercise and the competition. Cross Country running tends to show character and I was delighted that not one of our pupils fell short in showing it.

This morning there were goodbyes in Assembly as well as the celebration of achievement which our Final Assembly brings. The applause for our departing Junior Masters and trainee teachers was as generous as the service they have given. It was testimony to the very high regard in which they are held by both children and staff here. In Milan Shah, Riya Joshi, Mimi Fullerton, Charlie ... and Billy Murphy we have been lucky indeed. They have been wonderful role models for the children, whose lives have been the richer for their service. I wish them, the extraordinarily dedicated teachers at St Christopher’s, our pupils and you a very restful and happy Easter break.
