Project Explore, Dorset and Surrey U13 Cricket

1st Year Blog

It’s been a packed final week of this short half term, and the boys seem to be revelling being in mufti for one final day in School before the May break. I do wish them all a relaxing and fulfilling half term, and I hope that they achieve the right balance between revision and relaxation. Good luck to all our intrepid coasteerers who are setting off to Dorset today – I’m sure it will be an adventurous trip, and I look forward to hearing all about it when you get back. It isn’t all exams the first week back, and I know many boys are looking forward to the much-anticipated inter-form athletics competition – I’m sure you are all awaiting the results, and I shall bring them to you in the first week back.

Everybody who had contributed a project can be exceptional proud of their achievement. It was wonderful to see so many different creative takes on the experience of visiting a local landmark. Whether it was poetry, creative writing, photography, sculpture of film-making, the skills on display were truly exceptional. Well done to everybody who took part, but especially to our winner Fahad H, and our runners-up Abhay B and Sam R.

The photos and video below really show the diversity of projects on display. Well done everybody!
