CLAIRES COURT BULLETIN

SENIOR BOYS

Bulletin 5| Summer Term 2016

Information correct as at Friday 13 May 3.30pm

FROM THE HEAD'S DESK

We have chosen our new Prefect Body and congratulations to those selected, they have certainly been set a good example by the outgoing team. The boys will now have the opportunity to apply for the post of Head Boy. A huge thank you to all those involved in the Boat Club Dinner last Saturday, a very successful evening and Tom Aggar proved to be an inspirational speaker. The Wednesday wash out not only cancelled all the cricket, but Thames Ditton and Maidenhead Junior Regattas are both cancelled due to excessive stream.


A plea to all parents that if your son has a changed pick up time would you please ensure that they are collected promptly, to ensure that staff can leave the site at a reasonable time. The Summer Ball is a sell out and the weather promises to be good so I look forward to seeing parents there and enjoying a memorable evening.


Good luck to Year 11 next week with the start of their GCSE examinations.


Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground. Theodore Roosevelt

GOODBYE YEAR 11!
