A week dominated by the Year 8 play has brought the richly deserved rewards for the children and to those staff involved.I had heard glowing reports from adults and children who saw the school performance and so was eager for last night’s performance. What a wonderful range of talented and confident and composed and vibrant children who collaborated so powerfully to realise Mrs Keirle and Mr DJ’s vision for our marvellous entertainment.So many aspects brought surprise and delight as a familiar tale was delivered with great style, sense of fun and ingenuity. If you are reading this and coming for the final performance tonight – you’re in for a treat.
Another moment of delight this week was umpiring the Under 12B girls’ hockey team on Wednesday afternoon.Bar a slightly flat five minutes in the second half, it was a great game with the girlsupbeat, energetic, supportive of each other, determined and full of positive intent about playing good hockey.Having spent the morning in an important (but very long) Finance and Estates meeting held at the College, it was particularly delightful to put on a tracksuit and get out in the (very) fresh air!
Working even further back in my week to Monday, the third delight to mention came when I visited the King’s Equestrian Centre that we have created within the Netherclay stables, just on the edge of Taunton.The King’s unit stands out and is clearly a great facility which King’s Hall children have already been to on several occasions; one child even stables their horse there permanently now.The official opening is next week and so I’m sure we will hear even more about this in the future.
