We’ve had a few lovely mornings recently – the low lying mist is very atmospheric on the front field and of course we all welcome sunny starts. I hope you’ll forgive me when I say that the school is glorious without children! The peace and beauty of an amble around early on a fair morning never fails to fortify the repositories of natural delight, serenity and perspective.
We have certainly had a metaphorically sunny start to term not only in regard to bedding in new beginnings but, in not wasting a moment, we have been straight into various regular activities.
To mention a few: hobbies have been heavily attended this week, orchestra have convened, King’s Loop was immediately into its stride (and brilliantly popular), Year 3 are off on a trip today, the boarders had a cracking day by and in the sea at Dawlish Warren, Year 6 were on the Quantocks hill walking on Wednesday, ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’ rehearsals are more than underway, the top field was splendidly covered with seven different rugby matches with spectators, we have been to hockey tournaments, creations are already emerging in Art and DT and I know Mr DJ has had excellent first sessions on the new instruments. And that is, of course, on top of and around all the considerable endeavour and hard work applied to academic development.
Even though the last fortnight has flashed by, this is no longer the start of term and there is much to anticipate ahead.
