How far can you walk into a forest? Those who enjoy quirky questions will know that the answer is ‘halfway’, thereafter you are walking out of the forest. Well, today, in relation to our seasonal calendars, we are halfway into winter and now begin to move out as we head towards Spring. I hope you have other reasons to be cheerful (and how many of you can’t help saying ‘Part 3’ as a natural extension to those four words?) as we enter February. Father Mark was reminding us of this and related it to Candlemass and Groundhog Day as well – it’s also (inevitably) a couple of important birthdays today for some.
A few other reasons for some to be cheerful also cross my mind: Year 8 CE candidates have completed a week of exam trials without too much fuss (well done to them), Six Nations start this weekend, the gorgeous sun has been wonderful recently, Year 6 are getting to grips with their play, Mrs Hand’s senior netball group all know they can shoot more accurately than me, it’s half term in only seven days – oops, shouldn’t have said that last one out loud!
Before then, one other reason to be cheerful if quizzes float your boat is the FoKHS quiz which is now looming next Thursday. If you’d enjoy an evening of fun with some friends do sign up as plans will need firming up pretty soon.
Have a good weekend and I may see many of you on a touchline tomorrow - I won’t be either the GS or GA!
