Old Elmhurstian visit…..

Elmhurst School for Boys

3rd July 2013 | Heads Blog

Tuesday 2nd July.  We were very lucky to be joined by Mr Jo Mason at our International Day yesterday.
Mr Mason was at Elmhurst between 1960 and 1967, in fact he had 2 brothers that also went to Elmhurst.  We are very proud that the Science award for Speech Day still bears the Mason family name after all these years.
Mr Mason is currently the Director of  Boarding at The Pilgrims School in Winchester.
Mr Mason really enjoyed his visit and he writes as follows:

Dear Henry, Charles, staff and boys

I left Elmhurst yesterday on a magic carpet; it was just that sort of day!

I travelled back on the train reading avidly the history of the school; there was so much to learn and take in. Last night and today, I have bored so many staff and boys talking about something only I could appreciate. I really long to share it with my mother and my brothers.

My lasting memory will be the time given to me by the staff, the happy smiling faces, the range of activities that happened yesterday and clearly happen every day of the school year.

Elmhurst was and still remains that happy family school that prepares boys for the future.

Many thanks and my very best wishes to you all. Please pass on my thanks to the boys too.

Jo
