This weekend all over the world it is Remembrance Day. The 11th November marks the day that peace was declared to end World War I and is marked annually by many countries wearing a red poppy to raise money for veterans’ foundations to support those whose lives have been impacted by conflict.

Thanks to the efforts of Mr Lincoln, Year 9 students have been selling poppies on behalf of the Royal British Legion, and we marked remembrance with some beautiful performances in Friday’s Creative Arts assembly. My thanks go to Ms Pogson, Ms Hutchinson and Ms Corkery for organising such a lovely assembly. 

Remembrance is not only a time to think of those people whom we have lost, or who have been affected by war, but also a time to remember, to celebrate our successes as people in the present. One such success that has been brilliant to celebrate is the achievement of Vu Hoang Minh who has won the award for scoring the highest marks in AS Psychology in Vietnam. My congratulations to her for this incredible achievement. 

School has been back to normal this week following our incredibly successful trips week. All week I have been hearing stories of adventure, challenge, fun and laughter from the experiences the students encountered.

Some students were incredibly resilient, as having got back from the trips, happy but very tired, they then had to get up early the next day. On Saturday we had our boys and girls in the final of the HAC Volleyball tournament; our boys came third and the girls came second overall. We also had three boys and girls teams competing at the BIS basketball festival. One of our boys teams went through the tournament unbeaten.

My thanks to all the staff involved with these teams. As I write, our Under 15 team is competing at the FOBISIA games in Phuket. I will write more about their progress next week, but already I know that they have worked incredibly hard during the tournament and have competed with honour.

Finally I would like to wish our World Scholars Cup team the very best of luck. They have finally arrived in Yale, in the state of Connecticut USA to compete in the Tournament of Champions, and have spent a long time preparing for this amazing event.  More news on this in due course
