College – Issue 38

GARTH WYNNE From our Executive Principal

This edition of College arrives on your doorstep at a time when our community is navigating its way through the Covid-19 pandemic. In the constraints of remote learning, College has fallen upon those traditions, structures and relationships reflected in the stories herein. Unfortunately, almost all aspects of our co-curricular programme have been compromised, but our classrooms and Houses have kept connected through learning to learn and celebrate our spirit in new and different ways. This is only possible because our relationships are ones of trust and reliability built on the commitment of all and woven through the fabric of College experience. The flexibility and adaptability of our boys and the staff who serve them has been a wonder to behold and I am so proud of the manner in which our community has helped and supported each other at this time.

I see the way ahead for College as being enhanced by this extraordinary experience. Times such as this help us reflect on that which we value. Leadership in a time of crisis is an invitation to collective action – and the collective action of all associated with College has been an inspiration to me. I know we will be the richer for this experience, as our own needs as individuals have been somewhat compromised for the collective good. A lesson from the Gospels for a good life … live always conscious of and acting to support the needs of others.

Like you, I know we will return to a more “normal” state, that which is celebrated here in a pre-Covid College.
