Year 8 Expedition Training Walk

Last Thursday, Year 8 went on their expedition training walk from the Junior School to Hopeman and back. The purpose of the walk is to help the children establish the pace that they are comfortable walking at and help determine the groups they will be in for their upcoming expedition. The children also get a chance to enjoy a refreshing walk after a tough couple of weeks of revision and exams. Judging from the pictures, it’s fair to say the fresh air and sunshine worked its magic.

The Last Chapel of 2017-18

On Friday last week, the Junior School held its last chapel service of the year. It was a lovely service, led by Mr Schonken, which included an inspirational talk from Maisie, a Year 12 student who lives in Hopeman House, about living with Cystic Fibrosis. Maisie explained what impact this has had on her life, and has on many others, as well as explaining about common misconceptions  about living with the condition. The talk was concluded with the mention of an exciting fundraiser which may take place in the 2018/19 academic year, as well as encouragement to check out the website below to help raise awareness and understanding about the condition. Thank you for coming to talk to us, Maisie!
