You will see in the Newsletter a very long and hugely impressive list of Scholarships won by Year 8 children recently. I mentioned a few weeks ago about how proud I was to be sending all our candidates into the fray as they are a talented, purposeful, assured and upbeat group. It is a measure of the range of very high quality activity they have embraced here at King’s Hall that they have gained about 35 awards between them (I say ‘about’ as there is still the odd result to come in) and this is a remarkable total. Very well done to all who took part as everyone should feel proud to have been in good company and prepared to put themselves forward to be counted.
Next week, on Wednesday, we have the official opening of our Pelican Nursery for two year olds. Pyrland Hall was an all boys, mainly boarding, school and in 1987 Maureen Willson was responsible for establishing both girls and a Pre-Prep here and was the first Head of King’s Hall School. It seems fitting that as she brought the very youngest children to the site she should be here as we grow to welcome another age group and I am delighted that Maureen, with her husband Peter who was Bursar for longer than she was Head, has agreed to do the honours.
I was at a meeting on Wednesday in regard to a terrific concert that is being held next term in Exeter Cathedral. About a dozen Prep Schools in the South West, including King’s Hall, have involved 14 pupils each in collaboration under the banner of ‘Songs For All Seasons’. I know those involved here have enjoyed the experience thus far and there should be a memorable evening ahead on May 16th.
We head into the final section of term after a weekend break with the Year 6 play next week and House Music the following week to conclude the term. Do I see even the merest suggestion that we are in spot of sustained high pressure next week? Fingers, toes etc, all crossed.
