Special Assembly

Posted on : September 15, 2018

On Friday 14th September a very special guest addressed the school in the first whole school assembly of 2018/19. The Anglican Archbishop of the Congo, most Rev’d Massimango Katanda spoke about poverty and unjust discrimination and favouritism. The Archbishop also took part in the presentation of the new Prefects to the rest of the school. The prefects were elected from the 6th year class by both their peers and their teachers. We wish them all the best as they take up their duties this year. Prayers were led by Canon Patrick Bamber while the choir, under the baton of Jonathan Carter sang. Our traditional musicians played some Irish music for Rev’d Katanda – and their fellow students and teachers! We wish all our students a very successful and enjoyable year of study.
