A Message from Mr Holden

My thanks to the P&F for their wonderful efforts with ‘Back to Newington Day’ on Saturday.  The stalls aimed at younger children made the event hugely enjoyable for all ages. A special mention to the Wyvern U12 rugby and football teams who played very well in short games against Lindfield Prep prior to the 1st XV and 1st XI games.

The Wyvern Choir performed superbly well at last week’s Founder’s Concert and looked very at home amongst the elite ensembles of the Senior School. Bravo for contributing to such an outstanding concert.

As we come to the last round of sport fixtures this Saturday, I thank all staff, parents, coaches/managers, boys and officials for their excellent contribution to the 2019 Winter sport season. The positive tone, good attitude, teamwork, Wyvern spirit, dedication and commitment were evident across all sports. A special thank you to Mr Joel Wilson and our sports staff for their valued co-ordination work and leadership.

Finally, just a reminder that Monday 19 August is a pupil free day.

Ian Holden
Head of Wyvern House
