Year 11's Impromptu Farewell
On Thursday 19th March, following the sudden announcement of school closures, we held an impromptu farewell for our year 11 students’ unexpected last day at Testbourne. Our students were obviously concerned about a myriad of things including the health and wellbeing of their families, not to mention how they were going to be awarded their qualifications. They took a moment, however, to enjoy signing each other’s shirts and reminiscing about the memories of school they will cherish.
In the face of adversity, our students demonstrated great humility, compassion, integrity and courage, making all the staff proud. Of course, not everyone could share in this farewell as some students were isolating at home, and our thoughts were also with them. We are yet to know what the future holds, but we will miss the 2020 cohort. We hope to provide a reunion in the next academic year, and we will let you know when the time comes. Stay safe and keep in touch Year 11.
