Strange qualities of the courageous leader You know by now that I believe there are leadership qualities in all of you.

Dear Parents/Guardians The first half of the year is now over and, as we enter the second semester, there is opportunity for reflection from our boys on their efforts these past six months.

Headmaster’s Assembly – 25 May 2018

Leadership and goodness I believe that every person sitting here is a leader.
