Editorial

 

Following the success of the first edition of our school magazine, we feel that the time has now come for our second production to make its appearance.

The immediate response to appeals for entries was not as great as last time, but after many exhortations from members of staff and committee, there was a marked improvement as the closing date for entries drew near.

And now a word concerning the first magazine.  We received a very favourable report in the local press, and financially we kept our heads just above water, thanks to the excellent and efficient management of Mr. Wells and Dennis Elwell.  We are hoping that this time the sale of copies will be greater than last so that the magazine may be a financial as well as a literary success.

The Christmas term is now upon us, and with it comes a change in the activities of the school . Cricket bats and tennis rackets are now replaced by football boots and hockey sticks, whilst plans go ahead for the various winter activities of the school. Preparations are being considered for the parties and dances that are to be held at Christmas, and now that the temptation of long summer evenings is removed, we hope that scholars are beginning to think more about homework than about play.

This year also marks the culminating point in the studies of the 5th and Upper 6th Forms. For the 5th Form, there is, next June, the General Certificate of Education Examination, and for the Upper 6th the advanced level of this examination.  To all those sitting these examinations, we wish the best of luck.

And now, following the path of our first, we present you with our second magazine.
