Dear Parents,

I was pleased and honoured to welcome Cadet Warrant Officer Harrison to present at our assembly this week. Réshé Harrison, at the age of 17, has been accepted as the youngest recipient of the PPL Scholarship for pilots. Réshé is an incredibly inspirational young man, who despite suffering and overcoming leukaemia at the tender age of 6 years old, has worked hard and applied himself to achieve his goal of becoming a commercial airline pilot. The boys listened intently in the assembly and asked some insightful questions after. My hope is that the boys will learn from Réshé’s story and will be inspired to focus on their own goals and work hard to achieve them.

As always our very own Cumnor House pupils have inspired me through their own commitment, skill and hard work this week. As a non-musician watching the Bronze, Silver and Gold House Music Finals I am in awe of the diverse range and high quality of music performed. Well done to all the boys that have taken part in the many heats and finals, you should all be very proud. I would also like to thank Miss Oughton, Miss Secker, Mrs Poole, Mr Jones and our guest judge Mr Krippner, Choral Director at Croydon Minster, for their judging skills and support organising such a successful event.

Please enjoy an excellent and busy weekend, I look forward to seeing those boys that are attending ‘Singing Sunday’ and taking part in the many rugby fixtures.

Have a great weekend.

Mr Cummings
