It has been a pleasure this week to experience the developing strength of our Prefect team. This week I met with Esmai and her Mum and Dad to hand over a cheque for over £1000 raised by our Prefect team. Esmai's Mum had some beautiful things to say about our students and how young people are so often poorly represented in the press. 

This week I was also reminded of the fantastic work completed by our very first Prefect team. They too, through a pier to pier walk and other events also raised £1000 to support students at a sec-ondary school in Uganda. Those students have just all passed their O levels - the first young people to pass this level of exams in the village where they live. 

I am delighted that we have such caring students who are developing such great skills as citizens. I look forward to the next stages of their exciting work. 

Kind Regards
