As we come to the end of another superb year at Felsted, I thought I would briefly reflect on last Saturday’s Speech Day. I have received many emails this week saying how wonderful they felt James Shone was as our guest speaker. I am delighted that he has been so well received and he was genuinely touched by the standing ovation he received. His is very much a message of hope, of belief and of positivity! His acronym for U.F.O. – upwards, forwards and outwards will long resonate with us all that were there and I thank him again for his time and wisdom.
Another person to thank and wish all the very best to is, of course, Mr Searle who retires today. Over the past 33 years, Tristan has served FPS with passion, dedication and true professionalism. Speech Day and today’s Final Assembly were very emotional, as you can imagine. Tristan, we will all miss you greatly, but wish you the very happiest and longest of retirements.
I will just close by wishing all of our FPS families a lovely summer break. To those moving on, we send you our love and best wishes. To those returning in September; stay safe, have fun and come back with some stories to tell.
