Transition Time for Year 8 Students

Middle School is all about Transition but there are certain moments when the process becomes particularly obvious. For Year 8 boys this is on Speech Night. Following speeches and performances our Year 8 boys are presented to the audience and then cross the stage and form up in their new Senior School Houses. Then under the direction of the Pipes and Drums and their new House Captains, the Year 8s march out of the Dickinson Centre as Senior School boys. It is a simple but poignant scene, and hard not to consider how far they have grown in every sense as they file past.

I look forward to seeing all Year 8 families at your final event in Middle School.

Head of Middle School
