Headmaster Hoverboards into Assembly

The Headmaster glided into assembly on a hoverboard to launch the theme of a 'Can-do' year.

The Headmaster launched his 'Year of Can-do' in an assembly in September by gliding in on a Hoverboard. Leading by example, he was able to demonstrate the importance of learning new skills, trying new things and never being afraid to have a go. He also showed some footage of the indoor skydiving that he had tried for the first at the weekend. All the girls and staff gasped in surprise and were very impressed. Mr Whelpdale said, 'I think it is important to have an open mind to learning and also try things which may be difficult. If we are not prepared to push ourselves, we will not succeed or realise our potential. I have challenged all the girls and staff to take this message on board, and look forward to hearing about their new experiences soon.'
