This is likely to be the last HEADlines of the year. Don’t get your hopes up – it could be a little more Friday-shattered than earth-shattering! Anyhow, it’s the content of the Newsletter that is really worth looking at. Some reflections on Arts Week last week and Maths Week this week are in there.
Cricket, end of term and the increase of Covid cases have been amongst my thoughts for the week. The Under 11 boys took on schools from the South West region as the newly crowned Somerset County Champions and, on winning that day, now progress to the National Finals at Oakham School on 8 July. On the same day, our U13 girls and boys both won tournaments against several schools in our area and both teams are also due to compete in County Finals next week. Not to be forgotten, the Under 12 boys are in their County Final. Phew! You may also have heard that the College boys 1st XI have made it through to the National T20 final to be held at Arundel Castle over the weekend. Good luck to all!
Those of you with dogs will know that whilst on occasions they are a pain and a hassle (cleaning Somerset red mud off a white dog in the cold, drizzly gloom of a January evening after a walk you didn’t want to have at the end of a weary day!) is more than offset by the better times. Recently, Meg has been a boon not only in making me go out and get away from the paperwork but she is great fun when out and about with the children at break times on the front field. She’s quite a capricious flirt, though, as she will prostrate herself in a group for tummy rubs but then unannounced jump up to scamper across to another cluster and similarly recline for her next luxurious body massage.
No doubt we will be taking her for an amble somewhere over the weekend and then it is into the last four or five days of this academic year…… and even the final days for some at King’s Hall.
