A very Happy New Year to you all and I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas.
This week’s newsletter is a little shorter as we have only been active for a couple of days. It just contains a few reminders and ‘usual service’ will resume next Friday.
I will, however, share two humorous moments from the week to help fight off any January blues.
I passed through Heathrow on Monday heading off with the Custos on school business and, of course, underwent the usual bag security check. My backpack was pulled aside and the security woman had quite a smile on her face. ‘Do you know what’s in your bag, Sir?’. I replied, ‘chargers, passport, notebook etc but nothing like scissors or liquids that would be a problem’. It turned out, though, that this was not the case as a small hammer had been left in there from a New Year’s day family trip fossil hunting on Kilve beach!
Then, just this morning, Mr Halls was taking assembly and asked if there was anything people might do differently in 2019. One child piped up, ‘Don’t be fooled by Black Friday offers’ – sage advice indeed!
You might be interested to know that by the end of assembly Mr Halls had announced the brilliant creation of a King’s Hall weekly Park Run – it starts next week.
Finally, this term we have our very popular FoKHS Quiz and I believe the Chief Pelican will be writing to you soon so remember to set the date aside and sign up.
