Senior School Report

by Director of the Senior School, Mr Hamish McCrum

Last night we farewelled our Class of 2022 at our  Valedictory Cocktail Evening.  The atmosphere was very positive as families took the time to catch up with each other after what has often been a six, or even 13 year, shared educational journey. A night like this does takes considerable effort, so I would like to thank Roger Le Grand and Tanya Drake from the events office, Michelle Roberts from the Uniform Shop, Andrew Chamings and Shane Murphy for their work behind the scenes, and Andrew Ballesty our Business Manager because he will be having to cover the shortfall. Thanks also to Helen Lee and Denise Walsh who prepared our flowers for the evening, they were quite spectacular.  We wish all the boys well with their future endeavours.  We hope that they develop into men who are a strength to those around them in times of difficulty, men who are purposeful and who choose to do what they know is right.
