Prep Headmaster's Blog: Speech Day 2019

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 saying how wonderful they felt Sarah Brook was as our guest speaker. I am delighted that she has been so well received and she was genuinely touched by the standing ovation she received.

Her message of never giving up in the face of adversity and of being true to yourself and your beliefs was awe inspiring – a wonderful story told with such humanity and humility. She and Sparkle Malawi are in need of an office in London that can accommodate four people from which to run their UK operations – if anyone knows of somewhere /someone who is willing to donate such a space to such a worthwhile cause, please do get in touch with me.

As the year closes, I wish to thank Mr Evans, Mrs Allen and Mrs Riggall for all their hard work over a number of years. We wish them all long, healthy and fruitful retirements.

I will just close by wishing all 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.
