This Wednesday morning the whole school took part in its first (for as long as anyone can remember!) school photograph as part of the 75th Anniversary Celebrations. A little drizzle did nothing to dampen the spirits; the boys looked smart, the staff looked debonair, and the event passed off in a surprisingly merry way. The photograph will be available to parents after half-term - details to follow.
The school's commemoration of WWI came to an end in the early hours of Saturday morning with the return of 80 students from the war graves of Ypres in Belgium. The day trip included a visit to the Menin Gate and its Last Post ceremony at 8pm. Other events on the Friday included visits to various local military museums, and a walk to the local village church for a well-observed two minute's silence.
Earlier in the week, the Christmas Truce of 1914 had been echoed in a Staff versus Sixth Form football match. The staff escaped with a narrow victory - in a dramatic penalty shoot out - but there will be few people who would doubt that the Sixth Form should - and would - have taken the match but for some cynical fouling and some awful refereeing decisions!
The mountains of Snowdonia posed the first practice last weekend for the World Challenge boys of 2015. Resourced with hefty ruck-sacks and clothing for every eventuality, they drove to Wales on Friday morning for a few days of fine, Welsh mountain air. Under the watchful eyes of Mr Johnson, Mrs McGuire, Mrs Murray and some local 'experts', they braved the rugged slopes to demonstrate that they were indeed resourceful, hardy and determined individuals, capable of facing the longer and tougher challenges ahead. Congratulations to all on a super effort and the start of a memorable journey.
Congratulations to all our walkers, staff and boys, for their amazing achievements on the Sponsored Walk. Boys should now try to collect as much money as possible in sponsorship. In the past eight years pupils have raised over £70 000 through the annual walk. This year we need to raise as much as possible to continue funding vital medical training in Tanzania and to support Farnham charity 'Change of Scene'. Donors are encouraged to complete a Gift-Aid form, mailed to all parents and available from the school office. Any cheques should be made payable to ‘More House School’. Deadline is Monday 20th October. Watch this space for the final grand total raised!
