Headmaster’s Roundup 30 March 2017
Red Nose Day was a lot of fun and thank you for all your donations. Our Values leaders explained during our Monday assembly how the money raised is used to benefit charities at home and abroad and we are pleased to be supporting such good causes.
A big thank you to the kind group of parents who gave up time to make the Easter Egg hunt such fun for Lower School children on Tuesday. I know that the rabbit suits are hot anyway but in the warm March sunshine I imagine they were unbearable. A great sacrifice to give the children so much fun!
On Wednesday, Year 3 went to Go Ape for their fantastic finish to their Combined Humanities topic on the Rainforest and on Friday, Year 6 finished their Combined Humanities topic on China with a great dance workshop, which they shared with their parents in a show afterwards along with the excellent projects they had completed.
We cannot let the momentous news of our senior school’s tremendous success in the Natwest National Rugby tournament go unannounced. They made it through to the final of the Plate competition and came away victorious this Tuesday. A brilliant achievement and this bears testimony to the high standards of sport at RGS.
This morning we enjoyed a wonderful Easter service with all of Lower School. The children read, sang and played instruments very well indeed, and all enjoyed learning more about Easter. Tomorrow we hold our Upper School service at 11.30am. Everyone is welcome.
As the term draws to an end we always enjoy our House Captains, Games Captains, and Head Boy and Head Girl speeches as they remind us of the successful and exciting events of the term. It has been a hugely successful term in every respect with exceptional performances from many of our sports teams, wonderful drama and very pleasing offers of places at senior schools for our current Year 6. More than 90% were offered places at Reigate Grammar School and their peers have received offers to other excellent senior schools as well.
I wish you all a very Happy Easter.
