Writing the Raison d’être is a bit like squeezing the juice MYVT[OPZWHZ[`LHYH[4VUR[VU¶^P[O[OL MVSSV^PUNWHNLZVM[OLTHNHaPULHZ[OLÅLZO Once all the photographs and articles dropped into the Magpie folder have been trawled through, with considerable pleasure, the over-riding essence of the ‘juice’ starts to seep through… It was one particular photograph that captured my attention and seemed to epitomise this past year. The photograph below is of a Year 3 pupil holding in the palm of his hand perhaps one of the most unwelcome garden creatures of all: A snail. And a small one at that! This picture spoke to me of an innocence, a wonder and a delight. Innocent wonder at the delight of creation.
Indeed, I believe there is an innocent delight in cooking T\MÄUZNVPUNVUHUH[\YL^HSRNYV^PUNWLHZPU gardening club, playing chess (trying to beat the /LHKTHZ[LYSPNO[PUNÄYLZV\[ZPKLHUKJVVRPUN sausages as a Beaver or Cub, collecting eggs on a farm trip, sewing purses and bunting for fun, decorating candles for home… these are just a mere cupful of the clubs and activities our pupils choose and so enjoy each week.

I glean from the many hundreds of photographs taken throughout the year for The Magpie, an underlying sense of this innocent wonder and joy – in adventurous outings and enriching trips, friendships, Christian fellowship, laughter and support between colleagues in the Staff Room. It is something that I think Monkton at all levels – Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior - does so well, possibly without realising. The whole school encourages its pupils at all stages to enquire, to discover, to wonder and to be thrilled at creation in its entirety. And most importantly, its Creator.
Matthew Chapter 6 verse 28
School Â Review Headmasterâ€™s Â Speech Â July Â 2012 Lord Hastings, Mr Chairman, Governors, Staff, Parents, Friends and Pupils: welcome. I am well aware that for many of you, this is your last day at Monkton Prep and I trust that for you especially it will be a happy day in every respect. Some will enjoy a moment of glory receiving a prize but try not to be disheartened if youâ€™re not one of the chosen few: this is a day when we celebrate together what has been a very successful year PU[OLSPMLVM[OLZJOVVSÂśHZJOVVS[OH[0ILSPL]LPZ the best school in the world. That might appear to be an odd thing to say but the best school in the world is the one that suits your child most ÂśHUK`V\OH]LJOVZLU[OPZWSHJLILJH\ZL`V\ believe that to be the case. I wondered long and hard about a theme for my speech this year and I mused on the IAPS Olympic theme of â€˜Torchbearersâ€™. What a great day that ^HZ^H[JOPUN[OL6S`TWPJĂ…HTLWHZZ[OYV\NO Bath. I could have gone for â€˜Jubileeâ€™ and drawn comparisons between my time at MPS and the 8\LLUÂťZYLPNUÂśI\[T``LHYZH[4VUR[VU seemed feeble compared to her 60 in Buckingham Palace. In fact, Iâ€™ve already mentioned the theme a few moments ago when I said that the fundamental principles of MPS will remain unchanged. Principles. So, what are the principles of Monkton Prep School?
One principle that should abound in all schools is respect: respect of others and I would like to start by paying my personal respect to 3 members of staff who are not only leaving but are also retiring. Tessa Moriarty has taught English as an Additional 3HUN\HNL,(3H[4VUR[VU:LUPVYHUK47:MVY over 30 years. She has always been very part-time due to the fact that sheâ€™s been in and out of prison for years â€“ she teaches adult literacy courses to the inmates. She has been a loyal and faithful servant here and we all owe her much gratitude, especially V\YMVYLPNUUH[PVUHSW\WPSZ^OVOH]LOHK[OLILULĂ„[ of her tuition. Gilly Potts has been on the nursing staff at MPS for some 8 years and has been an integral member of the community here, especially PU/H[[VU/V\ZL5L]LY[OLSLZZ^LOH]LHSSILULĂ„[LK from her medical experience, enjoyed her lovely sense of humour and the odd 5 mls of Calpol now and then. Gilly, we cannot thank you enough for your care and compassion. Last December, we said farewell to Mr Baker who taught Art here, incredibly successfully, for 26 yearsâ€Ś and one term, to be precise. In December we tried to give Mr and Mrs Baker as good a send off as possible â€“ gifts, balloons, champagne et al but we could hardly interrupt the Abbey Carol Service to praise the Prince of Red Loftra â€“ we were there to celebrate the birth of Jesus. And so we invited Mr and Mrs Baker back today to be our respected guests and to say goodbye in front of the whole school community. Mr and Mrs Baker now live in their cottage in the Derbyshire Peak District looking out over the Dove Valley, surrounded by sheep, though not the blue-nosed ones that eat Zingle grass. Terry, we salute you. Thank you for all you contributed to Monkton Prep over the years as Art Teacher extraordinaire, one of the most caring Tutors Iâ€™ve ever worked with and a very, very loyal colleague and friend. May God richly bless you and Anne in your retirement.
Although not retiring â€“ far from it â€“ Mr and Mrs Cullum leave us today to take up a Houseparenting role at Hordle Walhampton. Individually, they have contributed so much, but collectively they have been a YLTHYRHISLK\VLZWLJPHSS`HZ*OPSK7YV[LJ[PVU6MĂ„JLYZ â€“ an area of high praise in our recent inspection. They arrived as singles in 2006 and depart married and with the delightful Oliver in tow. We wish them success and happiness and may God go with you. And, whilst Iâ€™m talking of leavers, we also say MHYL^LSS[VV\Y.;(ZÂś1VOU4J5HTLL1HTPL5PZO HUK5HVTP>`H[[>OH[HTHZZP]LPUW\[[OLZL[OYLL have had. Iâ€™m delighted to say that it works the other way too: all 3 have secured places to do their PGCE years at great Universities in October â€“ Iâ€™d have them back on my staff, any day. We also welcomed onto the staff Mathematician Mr Chatten (or rather, ^LSJVTLKIHJR4YZ/VVWLY@LHY4Y.VYKVUHZ Head of Art â€“ all 3 have been brilliant appointments; in all honesty, itâ€™s one of the most important aspects of my job. Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what I look for are people who will take the bus with me when the limo breaks down. Another of Monkton Prepâ€™s key principles is that individual talent should be met with opportunity. This is perhaps most easily seen or at least measured, by examination performance. From a cohort of 52 pupils, 17 Year 8 pupils have won awards to 4 different schools. I applaud the effort of the scholars â€“ those waters can be very turbulent and unpredictable, but I really admire those who are prepared to even have a go: in my book, there are winners but no failures. However, I am equally impressed by the efforts of those who have to strive academically and I am delighted to say that all pupils have got through [V[OLZLUPVYZJOVVSVM[OLPYĂ„YZ[JOVPJL>LOH]L seen a remarkable performance in CE results this year and in applauding the pupils, we also applaud the staff who have encouraged and cajoled all the way up from Year 3 onwards. There is no doubt that this school enables pupils to achieve and indeed exceed potential.
But there are many pupils at MPS who have their greatest talents in other, non-academic areas and that brings me to another key principle â€“ that strong tradition of inclusivity, whereby all pupils are given an equal chance to get involved, stuck in, whatever their giftsâ€Śand we work from the premise that every child has something to offer. Another guiding principle of Monkton education is: the development of character*VUĂ„KLUJLTV[P]H[PVU enthusiasm, drive, creativity, resilience, team work, risk-taking, sensitivity, leadership, self-awareness â€“ these are all qualities that cannot easily be measured and not all of them can be developed only within the classroom.
Let Â me Â now Â pick Â out Â a Â few Â of Â the Â highlights Â of Â the Â year: Mr Bandâ€™s sailing trip to CYE and the subsequent LU[Y`VMW\WPSZPU[V[OL0(7:5H[PVUHSZH[[OL Olympic sailing venue at Weymouth. Mr Parnellâ€™s brilliant Year 6 outdoor pursuits adventure at :RLYU3VKNL>LZ[^HYK/V Book Week â€“ most of it focused around Mrs Dydeâ€™s amazing Library. The MPS Quiz raising ÂŁ800 to help support the Girlsâ€™ Hockey tour to Holland, ably led by Mrs Cunliffe. Joseph â€“ over 60 pupils having a whale of a time on stage â€“ such a professional show. Daniel Watt passing Grade 8 in Drum Kit in Year 7. 270 shoe boxes packed with amazing gifts sent off [V<RYHPUL;OL9530-HPYYHPZPUNHZ[HNNLYPUNÂ‰ â€“ thank you Mrs Janes and the host of Mums (and .VYKVU^OVOLSWLKOLY The boys 1st XV rugby lost only one match in an outstanding season â€“ how Mr Lloyd Williams does it year after year I donâ€™t know.

George Adam’s silver medal jumping 1 metre 40 PU[OL0(7:5H[PVUHSZH[[OL(SL_HUKLY:[HKP\T Birmingham. Cubs, Beavers (thank you Mr Dietz and 4YZ/VVWLYMVYNL[[PUN[OH[VMM[OLNYV\UK>LSSZ Walk, Mrs Herbert’s Hand-bell ringers, Mr Thatcher’s Judo Club, boarders’ trips organised by Mr Gollings and Mrs Hodges, to Thorpe Park, mountain biking in the Forest of Dean, camping on the Dorset coast, our own Olympic Games with Bath Schools on one of the few sunny days this term. But it’s really not the successes, although it’s great to bask in the YLÅLJ[LKNSVY`VMV\YW\WPSZ`V\YJOPSKYLU¶[OL^PSS to win is not nearly as important as the will to prepare to win – but it is the involvement and that simply cannot be sustained without the commitment and dedication of the Prep School staff: please join me in thanking them for the hours and hours they put in; going the extra mile really has become the norm.
Another principle: striving for excellence. That’s such a good principle to live by and it translates into every situation, every age, every language… everyone can strive for excellence. The word ‘Excellent’ was etched on every teacher’s brow this term as we entered inspection week. 6 ISI inspectors, 1 HMI and 4 days – no stone was left unturned. Can I say a heartfelt [OHUR`V\MVYYL[\YUPUN[OLWHYLU[Z»X\LZ[PVUUHPYLZ& The response was way above average, which was a big tick in the right box. One inspector went into the English room and sat by a child writing in her exercise book; Today Today Today Grief Grief Grief Tomorrow Tomorrow Tomorrow Relief Relief Relief The inspector got up, bowled over by these profound thoughts and left the class, praising teacher and pupil. The girl’s neighbour leaned over and asked, ¸>OV^HZ[OH[&>OH[KPKOL^HU[&¹¸0»]LUVPKLH¹ said the girl, “but he seemed very interested in T`ZWLSSPUNZ¹ Inspection is a very trying time and quite frankly, my management team were worth their weight in gold. Martin Bray played an instrumental part in the preparation and inspection week itself, but Martyn Creeth, Luke Gollings, Robert Lloyd Williams and Fiona Hughesdon worked tirelessly so that ‘T’s were crossed and ‘I’s dotted. The result – communicated to you in the booklet in your End of Term envelope yesterday – was as good as it could be. Each of the 5 main categories was given the ‘Excellent’ descriptor – the highest ranking. Furthermore, each sub-section – 15 in all – was also given the accolade of Excellent. Sitting there, listening to the verbal feedback will always rank as one of the very high spots of my career – I had a lump in my throat the size of a coconut. I felt genuinely humbled because this report told me more about the real nature of the staff and pupils here; it is very much their triumph and their reward. Time and time again, it was the pupils that received the praise of the inspectors and this is the right focal point – the school is not a collection of buildings, proud as we are of all the facilities; this school does not exist for the sake of the Governors or the Staff – despite their huge commitment and extraordinary gifts – this school is an excellent school because it has remarkable pupils and I thank you for your trust in us, in placing them here.
(UKZV[VT`ÄUHSHUKWLYOHWZTVZ[PTWVY[HU[ principle. Dr Thomas Arnold, Victorian Headmaster of Rugby School and widely recognised as the founding father of the modern British Public School, told his ZLUPVYIV`Z¸>OH[^LT\Z[SVVRMVYPZÄYZ[religious and moral principles, secondly, gentlemanly conduct and third, intellectual ability¹>OPSZ[^L could spend forever debating the order of these 3, I think you all know me well enough that I unashamedly put a great deal of weight on this School’s spiritual dimension. One of the best parts of my job is that I work in a school where there is a freedom to talk about faith, sewing seeds which, in God’s good time, will germinate and bear fruit. At the Senior School *VUÄYTH[PVU:LY]PJLLHYSPLYPU[OL`LHY0^HZ]LY` moved to hear the testimonies of several ex-Prep pupils as they embarked on the next step of their QV\YUL`VMMHP[O(Z0^H[JOLK[OLTILJVUÄYTLK I thought how important it is to equip these young people with the knowledge of how to choose good over evil – so vital in a fast changing world of uncertain standards and values. Fundamentally, as teachers and parents we have an obligation to give our children a vision of life that enables them to understand the science of good and evil – a vision that I believe to be Christ’s vision of life. By so doing, we hope that we are helping to produce citizens who are determined to be part of a community, to share its burdens, to put its interests before their own, to ZHJYPÄJL¶PMULLKIL¶[OLPYV^UKLZPYLZHUK[PTL When deciding what to say in my speech this year I asked Mrs Stafford. Those of you who know us well will understand that I was rather surprised when she quoted George Eliot back at me who apparently said, ‘Blessed is the man, who having nothing to say abstains from giving worthy evidence to the fact’. I’m very grateful to her for that advice as well as the consistent support she provides to me and countless V[OLYZPU[OPZJVTT\UP[`^OVILULÄ[MYVTOLY quiet counsel.
A parent, cross with me for a sanction that had been applied to his child, told me recently that it was about [PTL0QVPULK[OLYLHS^VYSK>LSSOL»ZWYVIHIS`YPNO[ and no doubt there are some here today who would agree with him….yes, I still make mistakes. But if, to quote Bob Dylan’s lyrics, ‘being out of step with reality’ means standing up for lasting values, defending the right of your children to be children and enjoy the freedom that should go with childhood and trying to ensure that every child who passes through MPS under my watch, goes into the so-called real world a decent, upright, moral and emotionally intelligent human being who will play a part in transforming society rather than exploiting it, then perhaps, just perhaps, being out of step with reality may not after all, be such a bad thing.

Mr and Mrs Stafford, this is the last opportunity that this current Year 8 will have to thank you for the many years of enthusiasm and commitment you have shown to every child at Monkton. You have lead this school with dedication, passion and humour. Sir, we owe you so much for setting such high standards and helping us climb the summit of our potential, for catching us when we fall and for your support as you encourage us to achieve our goals.

Speech Day speeches Head Girl First and foremost I would like to thank our guest of honour Lord Hastings, for being with us today. Your career and faith is an inspiration to us all here but especially to those of us who leave MPS today. I came to Monkton 2 years ago but feel I have gained a lifetime of memories in just that short time. When I arrived my dad was away with the Armed Forces in Afghanistan and I was scared and apprehensive about what the future held. But those feelings soon faded when I was welcomed by Mrs Hodges literally with open arms, her big warm smile and her famous OV[JOVJVSH[L;OHUR`V\4YZ/VKNLZHUKHSS[OL staff for making my 2 years so pleasurable and fun. Furthermore the friendships I have made here will stay with me and carry me on to the next chapter of my SPML0[OPUR[OLMVSSV^PUNX\V[H[PVUÄ[ZWLYMLJ[S`!ºKVU»[ cry because it’s ended, smile because it happened.’ Finally, if I had to sum up Monkton Prep School, it would be: M for motivation: The staff have always encouraged me in every aspect of school life. P for patience: Staff have listened and supported TL[OYV\NOKPMÄJ\S[PLZ S for a secure environment. An environment where it really is safe to make mistakes and learn from them. Thank you for 2 precious years.

Chapel The Christian faith lies at the heart of all we try and do at MPS. C S Lewis said that ‘Education without religion, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.’ In other words, what we teach and what our pupils learn, are not ends in themselves; they are insights into the way God works in His world and in our lives. And the fact is inescapable – the world view of the teacher, gradually conditions the world view of the pupil: the spiritual guidance and example offered by the staff is second to none. There is an understanding amongst the pupils – at different levels – of what it means to give: donating money to a worthy JH\ZLZHJYPÄJPUN[PTLMVYZVTLVULLSZLVMMLYPUN oneself for service. The Christian stance of this school challenges the notion that anything’s fair as long as it gives you a competitive edge; as a Christ-centred community, we take a different line to the commonly OLSK]PL^[OH[PUZPZ[Z^LW\[V\YZLS]LZÄYZ[ILJH\ZL no one else will. We often say a prayer together in JOHWLS[OH[NVLZ¸.VKOLSWTL[VW\[`V\ÄYZ[V[OLYZ next and ourselves last” and this is a helpful maxim as we go about our normal work either as staff or pupils. The Chapel ‘highlights’ include the Act of Remembrance and this year the names of all former Monkton pupils who were lost in the 2nd World War were read out by Year 8 pupils – 56 names in all. The launch of the Operation Christmas Child shoe box appeal and the Wells Walk cheque presentation, which kick-starts the next walk, are occasions when visiting speakers from the organisations come to inspire the children in their endeavours. The Advent Carol Service and the Leavers’ Service are the only services held in St George’s but both create a very special atmosphere that is appreciated by all who attend. Harvest Festival is a lovely occasion and one to which pupils bring varieties of dried foods, which are boxed up and taken to the Julian House Night Shelter in Manvers Street, Bath. A wonderful Easter Service was held in Holy ;YPUP[`VU[OLÄUHSKH`VM[OL3LU[;LYT9L]K;PT Buckley spoke at the service and the Choirs sang ILH\[PM\SS`;OLZLY]PJLWYV]PKLKHÄ[[PUNJSPTH_[V the Easter Term… and everyone came back to school for coffee and hot-cross buns! Once again, we are very grateful to the Staff Band, who lead the worship each Saturday morning and on other occasions when the need arises.

ICHTHUS Every other Wednesday, a group of Yr 8s lead a chapel service which is called Ichthus. It involves games, readings, dramas and is lots of fun for the whole school. There is also a band made up of mostly Yr 7s and Yr 8s. We have been in the Ichthus committee twice and both times we couldn’t wait until the next Wednesday. It was a great experience HUKYLHSS`IVVZ[LKV\YJVUÄKLUJL>LSLHYULK[V have fun and enjoy ourselves in front of a great audience and we are sure that next year’s Yr 8s will OH]LQ\Z[HZT\JOM\UHUKSH\NOZ0[^HZKLÄUP[LS`H wonderful opportunity and will be helpful at the senior school because we learned to be comfortable in front of an audience.

PRE-PREP & THE NURSERY Educational visits and visitors can help to make subjects more vivid and interesting for pupils and enhance their understanding. Whether the emphasis is adventurous, academic, sporting, cultural, spiritual or creative, educational visits, visitors and outdoor LK\JH[PVUWYV]PKLÄYZ[OHUKL_WLYPLUJLZ[OH[PUZWPYL and enhance learning and development in ways which are powerful and lasting. At Monkton Pre-Prep we therefore endeavour to give all children the opportunity to participate in a wide range of exciting educational visits and learning outside the classroom activities. From a trip to the ^VVKZ[VÄUKHº)VN)HI`»PU9LJLW[PVU[VH]PZP[ from Sir Robert the Knight in Year One, to baking challah bread with a person from the Jewish community in Year Two to experience how the Sabbath is observed - these visits and visitors provide a foundation for life-long learning and healthy lifestyles, as well as complementing classroom learning and enriching the curriculum.

Polichinelle Packs a Punch! For one day the Pre-Prep relocated to France! The ^OVSLZJOVVS^HZKLJVYH[LK^P[OÅHNZI\U[PUNHUK banners as children and staff dressed from top to toe in the French Tricolour shades of blue, white and red. Even the catering staff (suitably kitted out in the French chef attire) had prepared special French fayre of croissant, pain au chocolat, poulet frites, crepes and baguettes.
today was an ideal opportunity for them to see how much fun it can be to communicate in another language. I am very grateful to our Head of French, Madame Hopper and to Alix Booth for introducing the whole school to Polichinelle.”
However the highlight of the day was a performance of the classic Punch and Judy show by renowned French puppeteer Alix Booth. Familiar English nursery stories were retold in French by Polichinelle (Mr Punch) and the children were quickly understanding words for animals, creatures and following simple instructions. They shouted with laughter and leapt from their seats to tell Polichinelle just what the naughty animals were up to behind his back and were totally immersed in the hilarious narrative from beginning to end. Mrs Morrell was delighted with the response from the children. “This has been the highlight of this half term for the children. Communicating with other cultures is something we encourage in all our children and

Down At Henley Tyning Farm With Kindergarten! The Kindergarten farm visit was a brilliant success. Farmer Lippiatt and his staff made the children feel incredibly welcome and safe. The huge variety and size of the animals that make up a typical British farm were soon apparent as the children carefully collected eggs in the hen house, stroked the bright yellow KV^UVMKH`VSKJOPJRZ[YHTWLK[OYV\NO[OLÄLSKZ[V]PZP[[OLOVYZLZHUK^H[JOLK[OLMHYTLYYV\UK\W some of his prize cows and day old calves.

Year 1 Checking out Knights and Castles No history lesson is complete without a visit from a Knight and a visit to a Castle and Year 1 were lucky enough to experience both! Robert the Knight dropped in to show Year 1 his splendid armour made of terribly heavy chain mail and he explained what life was like for a Knight of the Realm during the Norman Conquests. A few days later the history lesson continued in the wonderful surroundings of Chepstow Castle. This ÄUL5VYTHUJHZ[SLPZWLYJOLKOPNOHIV]L[OLIHURZ of the river Wye just over the border into Wales. Dating back to 1067 and built less than a year after William the Conqueror was crowned King of England it was one of the most important castles historically that survives today.

@Bristol - Bringing science to life for Year 1 @Bristol is one of the most popular education science centres in the South West and a brilliant place for our pupils to see the world of science come to life! Fossil hunting, meeting Morph and discovering the world of animation, brains, bubbles workshops, theatre shows and lots of hands-on experience left them exhausted but hungry for more knowledge of how our world really works!

Let the Games Begin! There was great excitement amongst children and staff when Olympic sprinter and medallist Jason Gardner popped over the picket fence into the nursery during a visit to the Prep Olympic Day! The children had spent the morning experiencing their very own mini-Olympics – running up and down the athletics track and with the London 2012 games approaching the children were keen to take part in the pre-games atmosphere and were fascinated to touch and hold a real gold medal. However they were not disappointed as each nursery pupil was awarded a medal following their fantastic end of term gymnastics display in front of all parents. A wonderful end to the year and a brilliant chance to show off how much their physical, listening, language and creative development has improved in a year!

Roz and the colouring-in club! Pupils at the Pre-Prep kicked off a week of fun activities and events to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 1st March with a visit from Bath-based illustrator Roz Streeton. Roz is the creator of the wonderful colouring book series ‘Rosie Flo and Johnny Joe’ - the perfect books for children who just love colouring-in and colouring-in and colouring-in! An eclectic mix of action packed templates require some serious colouring skill and imagination but also importantly the arms, legs and heads must be drawn so they become real characters. Having watched her own children colouring-in hour after hour, she realised that there was a need for some good quality, imaginative and quirky books which encourage JVSV\YHWWYLJPH[PVUÄULKYH^PUNZRPSSZHUKJYLH[P]P[` Roz took time to explain how to use the Rosie Flo books and pretty soon they were itching to get the crayons out for themselves. Within minutes they were off creating their own brilliantly coloured athletes, cyclists, ballerinas and gymnasts to name but a few.

Children in Years 3 to 5 were so keen to borrow from a wider range of UVUĂ„J[PVU^OLUSV[ZVM[OLIVVRZ^LYL\WZ[HPYZPU the seminar room. Purchase of a large mobile shelving unit solved the problem and the Easter holidays saw a huge shift of stock. The result was an increase in the childrenâ€™s curiosity, discovering or re-discovering OV^[V\ZL[OL+L^L`Z`Z[LT[VĂ„UKIVVRZMVY themselves, permitting lots of enthusiastic borrowing! The suggestions box was bulging with requests too. In the Fiction area the children are reading and recommending books to one another and even me! Itâ€™s wonderful to hear them talking excitedly about what they have just read - an achievement of which we can all be proud. Next year we are going to focus on promoting a wide variety of authors.

4 Book Week began on an excellent note with the renowned author of The Roman Mysteries, Caroline Lawrence, speaking to the school about her work. +YLZZLKPUH^LZ[LYUV\[Ă„[ZOL[HSRLKHUPTH[LKS` about her latest book, The Case of the Deadly Desperados, which some pupils had already bought. Caroline was able to engage with her audience quite readily as a good proportion of the older children had some knowledge of her earlier books. Several copies of The Roman Mysteries had been chosen by the pupils and these were duly signed by Caroline at the end of her talk. She was an inspiring speaker and we were fortunate that she was able to accept our invitation to take part in our Book Week. The childrenâ€™s competitions offered a range of challenges which didnâ€™t make the judging any easier as the quality of the entries was excellent. The Year 8 short story writing competition was judged by Caroline 3H^YLUJL*OHYHJ[LY+H`WYV]PKLKHJVSV\YM\SĂ„UHSL to the week. The cake competition, based on a Roman theme, excited the taste buds as well as Caroline when she was also asked to judge them. It was even better when ÂŁ130 was raised by the cake sale for Save the Children.
The results of the various competitions were as follows: Cake competition: 1st April Collins 2nd Michael Lansford & Henry Harford 3rd Ollie & Abby Shrubb & Thomas Burrows Year 3: Designing a bookmark: 1st Felicity Kirk 2nd Mima Razak-Soyebi 3rd Abbie Gollings Year 4: Designing a book jacket: 1st Will Gatehouse 2nd Natalya Shaw & Beau Sheppard 3rd Issa Saddiq Year 5: Designing a mobile: 1st Kit Jones 2nd Georgia Huckin 3rd Finlay Gall Year 6: Top Trumps: 1st Freddie Baker 2nd Jamie Cope Year 7: Designing a board game: 1st Joshua Bayntun-Coward Joe Lewis / George Adams 2nd Matthew Venton 3rd Imogen Dawe-Lane Charlie Stanley Freddie Saunders Rory Murchison Year 8: Short story: 1st Madeleine Matthews 2nd Hannah Rustomjee 3rd Jean Serutoke PCS

We dressed the part and carried our gas masks; each one of us wore an identity card with our name and address. We got off the train and queued at the train station waiting to be picked by a family and taken to our â€˜billetsâ€™, before being squished into a community air raid shelter for the evening and singing war time songs to drown out the noise of the aeroplanes. We learned all about rationing and air raids and heard some of the amazing stories of the 800,000 or so children evacuated during WW2.

0 And so it was that on a crisp, cold autumn morning, Year 3 strolled down a Wiltshire country lane 130 years into the past. As they approached the village school they could hear the school bell summoning [OLT;^VĂ„N\YLZMYVT[OLWHZ[^LHYPUNSVUNKYLZZLZ and bonnets waited: the two Miss Squires, the school mistresses at Sevington School: it was 1881. Year 3 spent the day experiencing life as Victorian schoolchildren. The boys and girls quite properly had different lessons, from a different era: sketching; learning poetry; mastering household chores; and making Victorian Christmas cards. No MS Word at Sevington! We wrote on slates and used pens dipped in ink, while hoops and spinning tops abounded in the school yard. Discipline was predictably â€˜Victorianâ€™: everyone had to sit still and straight and be really quiet all day. All wrapped up with a truly Victorian lunch!

%#3L1 Year 3 We were visited by a World War 1 Tommy this afternoon. He showed us all his kit and talked about the war to us. He showed us how a stirrup pump worked too. He was very interesting and I felt as if he was still living at the time. It made us all think too and how bad war is. Year 4 A Tudor gentleman came to visit us. He used to help Henry VIII. He told us all about how the Tudors used to live, the songs they sang, the food they ate and the clothes they wore. He brought in a lot of items that they used too. Year 6 We were visited by a Roman legionary soldier this morning. He talked to us about how he lived as a soldier and what he had to do all day. He told us about the food they ate and how they packed their kit and marched a lot of the time. He showed us all the equipment he had to take with him. This included pans and cooking equipment, tents and all the weapons and armour. I was impressed with his javelin (pilum), his sword (gladius) and armour (lorica segmentata). It really brought to life all the studying we had been doing and it felt as if we were talking to a real soldier as he explained all the problems the Romans had and how they tried to overcome them.
Th e Battle Of Mon kton
Year 7 We visited Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle today. For once the sun shone and it was really quite warm. In the morning we went to Chepstow Castle. It was huge! We thought about how we might attack it and moved around the outside of the castle looking for ways we might have tried to get in. It had a cliff on one side and a large bank on the other and was guarded by towers along the massive curtain wall. The entrances were very well protected with portcullises, heavy wooden doors, murder holes and drawbridges. Both ends had barbicans too to protect the gatehouses. Eventually the girls came up with an idea to bribe the guards and blackmail them. Mr Hicks said it was always the girls who thought of this. After we entered through the gatehouse we looked at the other areas of the castle including Marten’s tower where Mr Hicks told a story that made us all jump. We then looked at the oldest part of the castle, built in 1067, the Great Tower. This was massive. After that Mr Hicks gave an archery demonstration and split his stick with an HYYV^OLÄYLK;OPZ^HZIL[[LY[OHU9VIPU/VVK In the afternoon we visited Tintern abbey. One group OHK[VSVVRHYV\UK[OLHIIL`HUKÄUKV\[^OH[[OL different rooms were and look for clues and work out what had been going on in a particular room. The other group went round the abbey with Mr Hicks looking at medieval religion and why, in some cases, it became corrupt and very rich. We then talked about why Henry VIII wanted to close them down and the difference that made to ordinary people due to the extensive role the monastery played in medieval and Tudor ZVJPL[`0U[OLTVUHZ[LY`PUÄYTHY`OLZWVRL[V\Z about medieval surgery and how Henry V had an arrow taken out of his cheek. He showed us how this was done with the head of a wax dummy he had that had been made by Madame Tussaud’s. When he pushed the arrow head in it spurted blood out. It was a great day and we not only learnt a lot but enjoyed it too. Year 8 Year 8 were visited by a bowman from the battle of Hastings. This was a revision talk but very interesting too. We discussed why William thought he should be the King and why Harold thought he should be King. We looked at the battle itself and the difference it THKL[V,UNSHUK4Y/PJRZ[OLUÄYLKZVTLHYYV^Z at some Saxon shields to show us what it must have been like for the Saxons in their shield wall. It really made us think.

Skern Lodge The whole of Year 6 came into school dressed in mufti and really excited on Friday morning, We were off to Skern Lodge! We heaved our bags into the gym and left them there ready to be transported to the coach. After double DT we were able to leave poor Mr Salmon! When we arrived in Appledore we had a competition to see who could make the best Sea Monster out of washed-up beach debris – the results were all pretty freaky! After supper we took HUPNO[^HSRHUKWSH`LKº*HTV\ÅHNL»;OL[LHJOLYZ seemed to think that this was rather funny, just a few bumps and bruises as I got sent back to the start feeling a little dejected, I had nearly won. On Saturday morning we headed off in our groups and were told to step backwards off a cliff! Luckily we had all the necessary equipment to abseil down to the beach. We then set off across the rocky beach. The instructors gave us challenges of climbing around the rocks near big puddles, some of us thought it would be more fun to just jump into the water... loads of us came back soaked. When the evening came we played silly games - I think that the centre staff were trying to see how silly they could make us look! We all fell asleep exhausted from our day. Sunday morning brought new challenges. In the morning the High Rope and Obstacle Course, we had to work as a team to complete some of the challenges. It was great helping some of the others to get across the obstacles and gaining help from them. The last HJ[P]P[`^HZZ\WWVZLK[VILZ\YÄUNI\[[OL^LH[OLY was too windy which made the sea too rough. We were able to body-board though and we still caught some great waves. When we got back to the centre we sadly packed up our bags.

The afternoon entailed some outdoor challenges with the instructors teaching us to orienteer and then build basic, yet remarkably sturdy, shelters which were put to the test as the heavens opened with torrential rain!
Year 5 ventured to South Wales on a very beautiful day to visit The Big Pit - an old coal mine that now serves as a museum. The children were very excited to be shown around by retired miners who marvelled them with their extensive knowledge about the history of The Big Pit along with some amazing personal stories of what life was like working down in a coal mine. Year 5 impressed with their inquisitiveness and IYPSSPHU[X\LZ[PVUZĂ„YLK[V^HYK[OLMYPLUKS`TPULYZ
A very educational and thought-provoking day was had by all. AC
The day began with a tour around the new mining gallery which is set into the hillside above the colliery. The galleries house simulated underground workings and a multi-media presentation telling the story of how the Welsh mining industry evolved. It was very exciting to see how the miners reached the coal by using explosives, or large mechanical cutting machines. Upon leaving the mining gallery, we were shown into the Pit Head Baths, where the children had the chance to see how the life and work of a Miner has changed from 1850 to 2000. We were very surprised to learn that children a lot younger than themselves were put to work down the mines, spending their childhoods working, with many children doing so, in total darkness. After a lovely packed lunch sitting on the hillside with perfect views of the surrounding valleys, it was the time that we were all looking forward to - the underground tour! We all were given the same kit and equipment - which the children enjoyed putting on, feeling like real miners, helmet, cap lamp, belt, IH[[LY`HUKÂşZLSMYLZJ\LYÂťÂś\ZLKI`TPULYZ6UJL^L were all squashed into the small cage, preparing to be lowered 90 metres down the Big Pit mine shaft for our underground tour, one of the miners sang a traditional Welsh mining song which really added to the experience. The underground tour lasted 50 minutes and the children were captivated every second of the way. The staff spent most of the tour bumping helmets whilst Toby proved the perfect height for a miner! Eventually we came back up the lift, back to daylight and it was time to go home. Everyone had a great time! JMc
Year 5 CYE Sailing Centre trip I am writing to say thank you! I really enjoyed CYE, it ^HZZ\JOH[YLH[0KVU»[RUV^^OH[0KPK[VKLZLY]L it! CYE was brilliant. Before I came I felt a bit nervous but you encouraged me to do things and helped me before I got the hang of it. One of the things I liked about you was that you were always willing to help and waste your time on us. I was so impressed with your new boat, especially the cabins. The boat looked so beautiful and inside was very clean and nicely set out. You must have made a huge effort for making it so clean and comfy for us and I really appreciate that. One of my favourite activities was Pico sailing, it was super fun! When we started I thought “Oh no, I know UV[OPUNHIV\[ZHPSPUN0»SSILY\IIPZOH[P[¹I\[^P[OHSS [OLLUJV\YHNLTLU[0SV]LKP[HUK[OL[PTLÅL^I` and we were having so much fun I just wanted to go Pico sailing forever.
Dear CYE Staff I am writing to say that our trip was the best in the world! One of my favourite activities was the lifeboats because I have never been on a lifeboat before and it was really fun. The cabin was the best because the bed was so comfy and I shared with Caleb, Edward and Will. I also liked the Pico sailing because I fell in and it was really funny. But the best bit was the woods night walk. I was really scared but after a while I felt awesome! When we were about to leave it was really sad and I really want to come back. Yours sincerely George Denning
Another highlight was raft building, I loved making the rafts, and putting up the sail! I also loved going out in the water with them. Doing the rowing was OHYKH[ÄYZ[I\[[OLU0Z[HY[LK[VNL[[OLOHUNVMP[ and how to do it correctly and fast. I really enjoyed the races and the excitement of who was going to win! Of course I also loved jumping in at the end. The whole experience was an absolute treat and I would like to thank you so much for the lovely clean cabins, the yummy food, the support and for all the fun activities we did.

Explorer Dome Year 5 had a show on Forces inside the dome. The forces talked about were pull, push, twist, centrifugal HUKTHNUL[PJ>LSLHYULKHIV\[0ZHHJ5L^[VU»Z theory, how every action has an opposite one which is called its reaction. We also learned a bit about space and we saw what happened when we blew into a tub of dry ice - it made a cloud in your face. We then used the dry ice to fuel some pop rockets and as the dry ice turned into gas and expanded it pushed the rocket up. The show was excellent and we learnt lots.

Activities inside and outside school Craft The craft activity has been enjoyed by a number of different groups of children. Origami, magic books, shoebox covering, card-making and candle decorating have seen children’s creative, imaginative and dextrous skills come to the fore. The wonderful candles were particularly impressive and thanks must go to Carolyn Shirley for continuing to source and prepare materials for the activity. JLH
Handbell Ringing Handbell Ringing has had a busy and exciting year. The excitement came with the arrival of the school’s set of brand new bells, thanks to generous donations from parents and Friends of Monkton. The Michaelmas term saw a group of a dozen pupils from Year 3 to Year 7, many of them newcomers to handbells, enjoy ringing together under the direction of Mrs Herbert and Miss Wyatt. They had a busy time towards Christmas, ringing at the Advent Carol Service, the Christmas entertainment at Holy Trinity and the Nursery Nativity Play. In the Lent term the old hands prepared for the HRGB ringing festival at the start of [OL:\TTLY[LYTILULÄ[PUNMYVT[OLT\ZPJHSL_WLY[PZL of Mrs Gabe, while a new group of Year 3 and 4 children picked up the skill very quickly with the help of Jean Ashelby (a visiting ringer). Both groups rang in chapel at the end of term. In the Summer term the older pupils delighted seasoned handbell ringers from all over the South West at the regional ringing festival.
My afternoon at the Handbell Festival ‘Before all of it happened I thought it was going to be in a church with young pupils from different schools doing different solos on a stage, but it was much more different. They had lots of different team names such as Brue Bells. It was in a big room and all the tables had special sponges on to protect the hand bells. We started off with all the teams joining together and doing a big piece of music and after every three or four songs there were some solos. The conductor was always making lots of jokes which made it fun. During the 40 minute interval, there were lots of things [VKVSPRLHYHMÅLHZOVWHUKWPSLZVMMVVK;OLYL ^LYLHSSZVY[ZVMWYPaLZPU[OLYHMÅLI\[ZHKS`0KPKU»[ win anything, but still it was worth a try.

We had a ^VUKLYM\S[PTLÄUKPUNV\[HIV\[^OH[OHWWLUZ[VHSS the thousands of shoeboxes after we have made them. It was very interesting and we all really enjoyed hunting for the shoeboxes we had brought in. Mr Chatten’s tutor group had brought in 39 shoeboxes, but that was nothing compared to the 3,000 boxes in the church, and this was just one of the collecting points.
hoe Gath e ri n g T h e S
The helpers there told us all about what they do there. There is a ‘hospital’ where boxes go if they have to be repaired. Each box is checked and if you didn’t manage to put enough in then they add things. They only take things out that are dangerous or prohibited. Two of the most wonderful things we did that day were helping off-load shoeboxes from the vans and seeing the pictures of the children’s happy faces when they are given their shoeboxes. I think going to the church was a wonderful experience and it really made us think about children who don’t get anything at Christmas. I hope Monkton carries on making shoeboxes for many years so more children can have something special at Christmas.”

UKMT Junior Mathematical Challenge
This year we took four budding Year 6 mathematicians Lucy Adams, Alex Murchison, Luke Walker and Matt Williams to the Bristol Maths Challenge and competed against 30 other schools in a three part competition. With a wide variety of mentally stimulating problems, mathematical races and tests the children were kept busy. The challenge is not only sitting at a desk working but racing around the hall matching up clues and getting answers marked.

It was really great, we all learnt something new and wished we could do it again!
Physics In the physics challenge we had to invent the best crumple zone for small cars. A crumple zone absorbs the impact of the car in a collision. Again the technology was astounding. The car was placed on a slight ramp and a special device measured the force with which the car hit it at the bottom of the ramp. Out of paper, drinking straws and tape we invented a crumple zone to reduce the impact force as much as possible. It was a truly interesting experience and taught us a great deal. 7HYPZ:HUKMVYK4H[[>PSSPHTZHUK3\RL>HSRLY
Lara Buxton and Lucy Adams Chemistry Challenge We had to mix two clear solutions which when combined would turn brown. By changing the volumes of each reactant we could vary the time it took to turn brown. Our challenge was to work out how much of each solution would be needed for it to turn brown in 15, 30 and 60 seconds precisely. We started using 40cm3 of each and took it from there. It took us 6 tries for the 15 second change, 2 tries for 30 second change and for 60 seconds and amazPUNS`^LNV[P[VUV\YÄYZ[[Y`;OPZ^HZZVTL[OPUN we had never done before and it certainly was very educational!

Verse Speaking Competition The verse speaking competition provides a golden opportunity for pupils to learn a poem and recite it in front of an audience whether it is in the classroom or in the Law Auditorium. For some it can be a nerve-wracking experience but for many it provides HIVVZ[[VVUL»ZJVUÄKLUJLPUILPUNHISL[VLU[LY[HPU an audience. It can also act as a suitable platform to WYHJ[PZL]LYZLZWLHRPUNWYPVY[V[OL4PK:VTLYZL[ Festival.

Valete (Staff) - Terry Baker Nearly two years have passed since Mr Lloyd Williams paid tribute in the 2010 Magpie to mark Terry Baker’s 25 years’ service at Monkton Prep School. His retirement in December, 2011, marked the end of an era after 26 years and one term at the school. 7YPVY[VQVPUPUN[OLZ[HMMPU HZ[OLÄYZ[M\SS[PTL art teacher at Monkton Combe Junior School Terry already had a wealth of teaching experience which had honed his inimitable approach to teaching art. This included working as a medical and surgical illustrator and lecturer in London and Southampton as well as working in Lyon, France for nine years as an illustrator and teacher of English as an Additional Language. His son, Matthieu, currently lives in Paris where he teaches the guitar. Born in Nottingham he brought his own brand of northern humour to both the art room and the staff room which brought many a smile to pupils and colleagues alike. This proved to be an invaluable asset in his capacity as Head of Kearns where for ZL]LYHS`LHYZOL^V\SKL_WLYPLUJL[OLÅ\J[\H[PUN successes of the pupils, especially in the House Music competition. His appreciation of pupils’ artistic endeavours was seen by all during his awarding of the prestigious Artist of the Week on Monday mornings which inspired others to follow their examples. Terry’s encouragement of the pupils to ‘take risks’ in the art room (though not with hot glue guns!) and to persevere with their initial ideas certainly bore fruit. ;OLTHNUPÄJLU[KPZWSH`VM+HUK+HY[^VYR around the school regularly drew praise from pupils and visitors to the school and showed off the pupils’ artistic talent to its best advantage.
Photography was another of Terry’s loves and his gaining of a Master of Arts degree at De Montfort University, Leicester in photography reinforced both his skill and passion for the subject. It was another medium which was successfully incorporated into the pupils’ art work. It also gave him the necessary credentials as the school’s photographer on all the sporting and cultural occasions. It is certainly something which he intends to continue with in his retirement amongst the picturesque hills and vales of the Derbyshire Peak District. That and his love of an eclectic mix of heavy metal music, opera and Beethoven! Monkton Prep School can be truly thankful that Terry Baker was appointed as the school’s art teacher back in 1986. Not only did he bring to the school a YPJO[HSLU[MVYLUJV\YHNPUNHZWPYPUNHY[PZ[ZHZ]LYPÄLK by the numerous Art Scholarships that have been awarded over the last 26 years, but his deep Christian ILSPLMZJLTLU[LKOPZHMÄSPH[PVU^P[OHSS[OLW\WPSZ[OH[ he taught. His writing of the two Redloftra plays that received their world premieres at the school will go down in the annals of the Drama department as being out of this world! In time to come the true believers of Redloftra will be able to click on to redloftra.com and be moved once again by the words of Rathamielle, Mr Baker’s ‘real’ name. We wish Terry and his wife, Anne, a happy and prosperous time in their new home

Kate Cullum Kate Cullum arrived at Monkton in September 2006 as Miss Acton to join the Science department and take on the challenge of Senior Girls’ Games. She wasn’t new to Monkton, having grown up in Bath and previously covered some Science teaching she certainly picked up the baton and ran with it. She was not afraid to take on new challenges and over the next few years took on some Year 5 English teaching (trying her very best in spelling), choreographed a production of Maid Marian and her Merry Men (using her natural dance skills), led countless teams of volunteers in stage make-up (ditto natural artistic ÅHPYHUKVMMLYLK]P[HSZ\WWVY[[VTHU`Z[\KLU[ teachers (superb). Her real strength and experience in sport saw her leading the Girls 1stVII Hockey Team to great success, as well as top teams in Netball and Rounders and her understanding of team spirit and game tactics did much to enrich Girls’ Games. Pupils loved her vibrant Science lessons and her warmth and enthusiasm spread quickly throughout the school.

And then Zuri, a beautiful springer spaniel, came to join their family, followed a year later by Oliver Nathaniel, born in October 2010 and both Monkton babies were adored by staff and pupils alike. Kate returned to teach Science on a part-time basis, taking on the new challenge of PHSE teaching and Junior Swimming. She also returned to the ski slopes with Ollie in tow, resumed her strong pastoral care across the school and even found time to co-direct the Middle School production of Just William in March 2012.

Richard Cullum Gilly Potts To say that Mr Cullum will be missed would be an understatement on a par with saying that the Cuban Missile Crisis was a little bit of a close shave. In his 6 years at Monkton he has packed in more than most in double that time. He has taken the 1st XI hockey - in his last season the team were unbeaten. He has been house tutor in Hatton House where he helped look after the boarders, taking them on numerous trips. He has led a very successful Ichthus group, taken VU[OLPUJYLHZPUNS`]P[HSYVSLVM*OPSK7YV[LJ[PVU6MÄJLY During the course of his time here he completed OPZ.;7THRPUNOPTHM\SS`ÅLKNLKTLTILYVM[OL teaching profession. Richard has also been an inspirational member of the maths department. The children he has taught have loved his style of teaching and the care he has shown to all abilities. Among all [OPZOLOHK[PTL[VÄ[PUOH]PUNHZVU6SP]LY The one low point of his Monkton career was failing the audition to get into the staff band for Saturday chapel. Despite being grade 8 he did not cut the mustard. However his “air trumpet” playing is something to behold! Indeed a list of his achievements and what he has done does scant justice to both how he will be remembered and his legacy to Monkton. What has marked him out is the care he has shown in everything he has done, the attention to detail and the willingness he has shown to go the extra mile for an individual pupil, team or group. His tutoring of pupils has gone way beyond the levels expected and the time he has shown all pupils marks him out as a very special schoolmaster. I use this last term carefully – because this is what he is. He sets high personal standards, gets involved in so many areas of school life and has been a great role model for the pupils here. He is an all rounder but a master of all. Hordle Walhampton School are indeed fortunate to ILNL[[PUNOPTOVWLM\SS`IYPLÅ`ILJH\ZL0OVWL[OH[ it will not be too long until “Rodney” returns to Monkton.

The end of the summer term 2012 sees Gilly’s retirement from her post in the Medical Centre where she has been working as one of the nursing team. Gilly came to Monkton Prep School 7 years ago, bringing with her a wealth of clinical nursing experience from a variety of settings, and this, coupled with her wisdom and a wonderful sense of humour have equipped her perfectly for the challenges of the job. Her calm, pragmatic approach to her work has been a real asset to the Medical Centre and as a colleague she has been an invaluable source of advice, support and guidance. As part of the Hatton house team, Gilly’s role has extended well beyond the Medical Centre. She has showed her agility and sporting prowess by playing rounders with the boarders, camping when called upon, joining the Wells walk and being part of the dynamic Friday night crew one of the busiest nights of the week. Gilly is a pivotal member of the community in which she lives and an enthusiastic gardener. Retirement will, we hope, mean many more delicious, homegrown vegetables and time enough to enjoy them with family and friends. As a passionate eco-consumer Gilly has encouraged and cajoled us to shred, recycle and reuse. We will think of her every time we go to throw away a medicine bottle or piece of paper and quickly recycle as appropriate! It has been a real privilege (and a lot of fun) to work alongside Gilly and to have had her as a colleague, her nursing and pastoral care of the pupils and the wider school community has been exemplary and she will be much missed. We wish Gilly a pleasantly busy, but restful retirement and look forward to hearing of the new projects that she becomes involved in and all the good things that life has yet to bring her. CW/AN
Fiona Hughesdon Miss Hughesdon has been an outstanding tutor to many pupils in Years 5/6. Her wonderfully caring nature has ensured that she nurtures all her charges exceptionally well. Her abilities in the classroom as an English teacher could be described as ‘stupendous’ and certainly ‘inspiring’ – although if you ask 6P about their prep titled “Farmers and their Wellies” they may well offer a different response. (Our very talented English teacher had mis-spelt the last word!!). :VTLOV^PU[OLKH`4PZZ/ÄUKZ[PTL[VÄ[PUHO\NL number of extra curricular activities: Cello playing during Icthus and Chapels, making bunting – which looked so beautiful in the marquee on Speech day, Chapel choir, drama clubs, spelling clubs, Wells >HSRIYPLÄUNZ¶^P[OHSS[OLKYLZZPUN\WHUK^PNZ Helping in Hatton House – camping trips, sandcastles, shopping trips and hair straightening! House music, verse speaking but even more impressive, Miss H has written and directed a number of plays – Pirates of Penzance was only just the start and now she has made her legacy of the infamous ‘adverts’. Although a talented rower, over the years Miss H has turned her sporting efforts towards girls Netball, Hockey and Rounders – there are always shrieks of delight coming from the 3rds pitches as a goal is scored – indeed from Miss H herself.
More recently Miss H made a very brave effort in entering the Guiness Book of World records - with her very dear friend ‘The Minibus’ (they had made close aquaintences with a wall!) The record is titled: ‘the longest journey possibly, ever to get home in the school mini bus’! So Fare-thee-well Madame Mimi we hope you enjoy all that Kenya has to offer and we know you will certainly leave your (delicate) footprint behind – we look forward to your return next year… As we say “salama safari” and send Miss H on her way to Turi we ask ourselves – will she return as “white” or as “fair”, as the African sun is bound to leave it’s mark!

Naomi Wyatt Naomi brought with her a fresh, gentle and kind presence. Much loved by the girls in the boarding house – not least for her sisterly compassion, her readiness to console and to pray alongside, singing the girls to sleep – but also her ability to have huge fun and laughter after a very, very, very long day!

John McNamee has made an outstanding contribution at MPS over the last 12 months. His primary focus has been in the boarding house and the boarders OH]LILULÄ[[LKMYVTOPZJHSTÄYTHUKM\UHWWYVHJO John has great empathy with boys of all ages. For the younger boys his compassion and patience knew no bounds and he was as happy playing lego, Wii and football with them as he was reading a bedtime story. To the older boys John was someone they could talk to about sports, music and contemporary teenage issues with as well as play numerous games of football. John showed great maturity and emotional intelligence when dealing with pastoral issues. Having no previous experience of boarding or private education John approached all he did with fresh eyes providing many insightful observations for more senior staff. Highlights to his time at MPS include the French Trip and Boarders’ Camp. He has been a GTA ‘extraordinaire’, a great leader and role-model to the boys and an invaluable member of the boarding and school staff. He will make an excellent Primary School teacher and takes a huge amount of gained experience and personal attributes with him into his PGCE year at Birmingham University next year. We will miss the dry, Brummie humour and wish him every success with his studies and future career.
Jamie Nish has completed his 17th year at Monkton aged only 23! Using all this experience to the full, Jamie has made an outstanding contribution to MPS over the last year. Primarily involved in the boarding OV\ZLOL^HZÄYTMHPYHUKM\UPUOPZKLHSPUNZ^P[O the boarders. The older boys especially enjoyed having someone on the staff who was ‘up to date’ with their use of technology and interests.

By far his major impact over the course of the year has been on the NHTLZÄLSK(M[LYHZ\JJLZZM\SY\NI`ZLHZVUOLSWPUN with the 5th XV, Jamie went on to successfully coach and manage the 3rd XI Hockey and Cricket teams, both enjoying undefeated seasons; a pretty remarkable HJOPL]LTLU[MVYOPZÄYZ[MVYH`PU[VZWVY[ZSLHKLYZOPW Highlights for Jamie this year include the Boarders’ Feast and Camp, the Wells Walk and Leavers’ trip. Jamie leaves MPS with a wealth of experience, excited to be testing himself in the rigours of a Primary PGCE at Bath Spa University. The teaching profession stands to gain another great practitioner and leader in future years. We wish him every success with his studies and future career.

Oliver Kane led the team admirably with great support from Henry Pope, Tom McNeile and James Burwell in the backs and Marcus Feather and Oliver Morris in the pack. Henry, Oliver and Marcus represented the school in the annual Somerset v Devon match.

The 4ths and the 5ths enjoyed a wonderfully successful ZLHZVU0U[OLĂ„YZ[OHSMVM[OLZLHZVU[OL`Z\MMLYLK only one defeat, drew once (a 21 â€“ 21 thriller) and claimed fairly one-sided victories against King Edward's and Beaudesert Park. However, the narrow victory against Warminster was one they took most pride in.

The â€˜tunnel of doomâ€™, the â€˜house of painâ€™ and the â€˜channel of dreadâ€™ were all conquered!
<UKLYZ The Under 11 â€˜Aâ€™ team had a good season. They were stronger in the backs than the forwards, but had a pack that would keep going until the end. The team saved their best games for the last three of the season starting with a close fought match against Paragon and then two good wins against Beaudesert and *VSZ[VUZ^P[OZVTLILH\[PM\SY\UUPUNHUKSPURPUN WSH`4H[[>PSSPHTZHUK(SL_4\YJOPZVU^LYLZ[HUK out players for their determined running and strong tackling and Mattâ€™s selection for the England Prep Schoolsâ€™ team was very well-deserved. Thank you to a great bunch of supportive parents too! The Under 11 â€˜Bâ€™s were one of the most improving teams throughout the season. They regularly showed great character and worked well as a team. Beaudesert 7HYR^HZ[OL^PUVM[OLZLHZVUPUKPMĂ„J\S[JVUKP[PVUZ Jake Abington and Henry Harford were outstanding PU[OLIHJRZ/HY]L`*OHYSLZ>PSS)YHU[,SSPV[ *OH^SH+\NNHU)LUQHTPU:[LWOLUZVUHUK>PSS*SHWW came on brilliantly in the forwards. Sam Boughton was the most improved player - new to rugby, he was awesome and a great prospect for the future. <UKLYZ We have high hopes for this team, unbeaten now in two years of contact Rugby. The team managed to grab two draws from the jaws of defeat early in the season and never looked back, winning their 9 other matches comfortably. The team look beautifully balanced with a strong set of forwards and a fast and powerful back line marshalled by Rory Myers. They have good back up in a strong Under 10 â€˜Bâ€™ team, ^OVHM[LYHĂ„YZ[NHTLKLMLH[HNHPUZ[/HaSLNYV]L^VU HSS[OLPYV[OLYTH[JOLZ*HSLI:[VJRPUNLYTHUHNLK to score plenty of tries with his barn-storming runs HUKZOV\SKĂ„[PU^LSSPU[OL[PNO[Ă„]LUL_[[LYT <UKLY Z <UKLYZ The Under 9s struggled with the transition to contact Rugby losing all but two of their games. However, the shape did start to come towards the end of the season HUKHUPUĂ…\_VM[^VVY[OYLLWSH`LYZ[VIVVZ[[OL[LHT should help this group of boys start to win a few games. The Under 8s enjoyed their Tag Rugby term but are itching to move onto the full contact version.

Sports Girls Netball Report The netball season started without the usual chill, which was great! We hosted 2 touring teams, one from the South East, Edgeborough and one from North Wales, Rydal Penrhos. We had great games against both and the girls did a great job of playing host. The 1st VII played some excellent netball and took some notable scalps including All Hallows and 4PSSÄLSK7YLW;OL`^LYLHNYLH[NYV\WVMNPYSZ[V^VYR with, always looking for ways to improve their game. A big thank you to Giorgia Fogazza, who captained the team and led by example. The 2nd VII were all U12 girls this year. They won the King Edwards tournament and lost in the plate at Monkton’s Super 7s. Out of their 9 games they lost only 1. A fantastic record and this also bodes well for next year. The U11s has a tough season, they played some excellent teams. However, the highlight of their season was ÄUPZOPUNYKPU[OL9V^SHUK1VULZ;V\YUHTLU[HUK ÄSSLK[OLT^P[O[OLULJLZZHY`JVUÄKLUJL[VTV]L on. The U10s had an up and down season, they played some superb netball, but lost concentration at times. However, the ability is there and I am sure that they will go from strength to strength next year. The U9s lost only one game, when you consider that they only have 6 girls in the year group this was an amazing result. The girls stared to really gel as a team and they are an exciting prospect for the future. The U8s really enjoyed learning how to play High 5s. Whilst they enjoyed the rotating around it is clear that we have natural defenders and natural attackers. Therefore I think that the 7 a-side game that they will play in year 5 will suit them, however, it is important [V\UKLYZ[HUKOV^[OLNHTLÄ[Z[VNL[OLYHUK[OPZ knowledge will be gained from playing High 5s in their formative years. Well done to all of the girls.
