Parents, pupils and staff came together in St Katharines Hall for the Year 7 Leavers’ Assembly. Led by the pupils, their farewell to the Junior School took on the format of an ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here’ type game show, with challenges requiring students to either share or act out their fondest and funniest memories.
Our oldest students had rehearsed a fitting poem, and of course a special assembly such as this wouldn’t be complete without a song!
Finally, the assembly gave everyone a chance to say farewell to Mrs Donald, who is retiring this summer after many years at St Leonards. There was hardly a dry eye in the room as many of her former pupils from the Senior School and Sixth Form were drummed in by Ewen, before sharing their favourite memories or lessons learned from Mrs Donald over the years. A very fitting tribute and we wish her every happiness in her retirement.
