King’s Hall Prep has been casual style today in support of Fr Mark’s One World Together concept in support of UNICEF’s global vaccination programme. I know the children have enjoyed wearing home clothes in school as a thank you for donating and, if you haven’t been able to drop in some cash or click on the JustGiving page here, you should also find the link in the Newsletter. More and more of us are receiving the vaccination so easily here – another two KHS staff in the last day or two – yet we must not ignore the fact it is not the same for all citizens the world over. There is a complementary benefit to us, of course, in that we wish to return as soon as we can to a world where travel is as unrestricted as possible.
There has been some travel to matches here in our very own Zummerzet. I was chatting to one of the staff who brought some Hazlegrove children over to play cricket and not only was it so great to be playing a fixture but she was most excited about simply leaving the school site and getting on a bus for a road trip. Who knows what the blasted weather will do tomorrow, there is the grave possibility it will either do enough damage beforehand or still be raining to put a stop to the games planned. Is it my selective memory or does it seem to have picked out match days to be at its worst?
There are more covid announcements ahead this month. Today sees some updates to travel rules with a traffic light system, the 17th May is a milestone already marked in the government’s roadmap and we will be looking for any alterations updates will allow here in school. I, personally, am hoping for changes to face coverings and suitably distanced spectators at matches as fairly high on my list. We mustn’t pre-empt things though – note to self: enjoy the growing freedoms but keep managing your expectations.
However it turns out, have a good weekend.
