Welcome back!

Elmhurst School for Boys

4th September 2013 | Heads Blog

Here we are at the start of another academic year, with all its endless possibilities before us!

Yesterday afternoon as the final preparations for the start of term where near completion I could feel the school needed its vital ingredient…..children.

The start of a school year is always very exciting and rather daunting.  Will I like my new teacher, where is my classroom, where do I put my bags? Just some of the things mentioned in assembly, another concern was; will I get things wrong?

Our new Reception classes have nearly completed their first full day of school, only a few decided they had enough by lunchtime!  Their excitement of the prospect of lunch with their Year 6 buddies was great to see.

Our Year 6 prefects have received their badges and ties.  They have started to receive their new responsibilities and are taking them very seriously.

It’s great to have the boys back in school their excitement and enthusiasm, has already transformed the quiet of yesterday afternoon and I feel sure that we have yet again a very exciting year ahead of us at Elmhurst.
