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.

HEADMASTER’S REFLECTIONS ON THE WEEK

It was lovely to see so many parents, grandparents and siblings at two drama productions this week which showcased the community that is St Christopher’s at its very best. The Year 2 production was a visual and oral feast which took us on a journey celebrating the wonderful cultural diversity of the world and the Year 6 production of ‘Charlie and The Chocolate Factory’ combined energy with real dramatic impact. Both productions had things in common: the children in both had enormous fun, the confidence they showed belied their age and both brought smiles to the faces of all who were there. Perhaps most pleasing of all, every child had a significant role on stage and the collaboration of the children heart-warming.

There has been rich variety in assemblies this week. Teachers, including the Headmaster, danced, a group of Year 4 boys danced rather more rhythmically, we celebrated money raised through ‘Row for Refugees’, some excellent sport results and some equally impressive academic work. Our Year 5 departed for France this morning, for many their first trip abroad without their parents. They will have a wonderful time, though I know they will be missed.

I look forward to seeing some of you at our Jazz Cocktails and Canapés Evening tonight, others at the Teatime Recital next week or the Cross Country in Hove Park on the final morning of term. We are hugely grateful for all that you do to support the very busy and rich extramural life of the school.
