The school year has got off to a fine start, packed as usual with a multitude of activities which you can read about in the various News Sections in the website.
There have been several rugby and netball matches played against a range of opponents in all age-groups, and the Music Department has been busy with a singing concert and a trip to the opera, and the Pre-School has made a brilliant start also.
One of the most pleasant tasks in the early weeks of the academic year is to choose new school captains. By recent tradition, the role of head of school is shared between a boy and a girl. These are important appointments as the pupils in question set the tone for the year and are very strong role models for other members of the school.
This year, the two captains are Arabella Jones and Tom Hubbard. Both are huge contributors to Stoneygate life and both have the respect of the school at large. Their first duty of the term was to come into Pre Prep assembly this morning and read out the prayer. They were then introduced to the younger children and spoke for a few moments about their interests and ambitions.
I am sure that we have two excellent school captains in Arabella and Tom and I know that this will be a successful year both for them and for the school as a whole.
