Welcome to Old Buckenham Hall
Next Wednesday, Clare and I will be attending the annual IAPS heads’ conference in Brighton. Among the speakers this year will be Guy Claxton, Professor of Education at the University of Winchester and world-renowned authority on learnable intelligence; what it is, why it matters and how to grow it! His bestseller, What’s the Point of School has become a seminal work in the education world: much of the work we do at OBH in terms of developing children’s creative capacities alongside their intellectual and emotional intelligence stems from the ideas set out in this book (Oneworld Publications, 2008 for anyone interested).
Best of luck to all those taking part in the Swimming Gala tomorrow afternoon. Let’s hope for a sunny day!
Parents and friends are most welcome to join us for our Service of Holy Communion on Sunday at Thorpe Morieux Church, beginning at 10.00am. Coffee will be served in the Drawing Room at OBH following the Service.
Be Britain still to Britain true,
Amang ourselves united;
For never but by British hands
Maun British wrangs be righted!
Robert Burns, 1795.
