There is much to celebrate this week. First, of course, there is the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III which we will be marking in both schools this week. I hope you are able to take advantage of the long weekend to do something special.
Secondly, we are enormously grateful for, and humbled by, the response to the fundraising campaign last weekend. We raised over £1,523,000 which was a tremendous effort on the part of all the team leaders. What was particularly heartening was the sheer number of those who were willing to support the school – 335 teams and 3798 donors. We are truly grateful to every single person who supported the campaign.
Finally, we want to celebrate the fantastic success of Avigail Rowe who not only made it to the final of the Chidon Hatanach but came 6th overall. She was competing against students from all over the world, many of whom are not simultaneously studying for secular exams (A levels). This was a phenomenal achievement and we are enormously proud of Avigail and her hard work over several years. Avigail is also a role model in the way she has shared her knowledge with younger students.
We have a thriving Chidon Hatanach programme at the Girls’ School, led by other finalists – Leah Kalmus, Sara Solomon and Orly Maerovits and we look forward to continued success in the competition in years to come.
Wishing you all a good Shabbos and an enjoyable bank holiday.
