Have you seen the stunning mornings recently? Having endured some very wet weather and then fog for several consecutive days it is lovely, if chilly, to be enjoying some frosty scenes that lend themselves perfectly to the Christmas mood in the camp.
We have the Nursery Nativity today, Prep Carol Service on Sunday and then Pre-Prep Nativity next Friday. Along with a couple of assembly re-tellings, over the next eight days we will make our annual pilgrimage through the greatest story ever told.
We have seen the last major sports fixtures and there has been a huge amount of enjoyment over the last few months and much progress made. Well done to everyone for heading out with enthusiasm even when it has been colder recently – that includes parents on the sidelines!
Talking of parents visiting for matches, as one visitor from another school came in the front door heading to match tea on Wednesday, they noticed the gorgeous pile of presents/shoeboxes building under the tree and asked “Ooo, are they for the staff?”. It was explained that it was a collection for Ukrainian children about to head out in time for Christmas and I thank the Pupil Council for leading this initiative as well as Harry Sharp, a former King’s pupil, for masterminding the external logistics.
One last Christmas thing to mention for now. If you’re free on Tuesday evening, the College Christmas Concert, which will include some Prep children, will be good fun as well as full of some quality music of varying styles. So, if you’re looking for some light festive musical entertainment then head to the College Chapel for a 7.15pm start.
See you there, anyhow, this Sunday.
