Boarders' Achievements Celebrated!


The Boarders Assembly on Monday 22 April celebrated the achievements of some of our boarding community. There were over 150 in the Chapel at the awards assembly, all sharing in their appreciation of what particular individuals contribute toward make our boarding community a better place.

The evening started with Mr Cowie reflecting on some of the global events which happened over the turbulent April holiday period. Mr Cowie stressed the importance of keeping abreast of world events and the being aware of the complexities of the issues facing many parts of the world (including Syria, North Korea and Mali) which have recently been in the news. Adding that despite some tragic events (including natural disasters and acts of terrorism) it is a wonderful world that is full of so much that is good. All were encouraged to share the highpoints of their holiday with others within the boarding community so we understand each other better and focus on the positive.
