Juniors Pastoral Evening
Time: 18:30 - 20:30
Venue: Wathen Hall

The Juniors are delighted to host The Parent Practice for our summer term pastoral information evening. All parents want the very best for their children and they want to see their children happy, successful and fulfilling their true potential. In this seminar The Parent Practice explores ways to motivate our children to do their best without applying huge pressure. The seminar will provide practical strategies to help parents support their children in getting things right. The talk will cover ways of motivating children to want to do their best, how to focus on the positive aspects of children’s behaviour and how to encourage children to try hard and to persevere. Parents will learn how to define and understand the importance of self esteem, identify common parenting myths about cooperation, understand the difference between descriptive and evaluative praise and identify multiple ways of preparing children for success. We are very excited about this collaboration and hope that as many of you as possible will be able to attend.

Details will be sent out by email shortly.

St Paul’s School Athletics Club will be competing for the Lord Burghley Trophy, named after David Burghley who won the gold medal in the 400m hurdles at the 1928 Summer Olympics. This competition has been held annually at Eton College since 2001. 

The Lord Burghley Trophy itself began life as a champagne bucket that originated from The Grand Hotel in Brighton after the 1984 bombing of the Conservative Party Conference and recalls the scene in Chariots of Fire when Lord Lindsay trained by placing a flute of champagne on each hurdle as an incentive not to knock the hurdles over. Last year St Paul’s Athletics Club came 2nd overall with the Seniors finishing 2nd, Inters 1st and the Juniors 4th with a superb team effort and a new school record set by Philip Kastner in the 100m hurdles.

St Paul’s CU Summer House Party

This is an excellent way for boys starting St Paul’s in August 2019 to create some great friendships before they have even started school. 

All Paulines, including those about to start in August 2019, and those who have just finished the Upper Eighth are welcome. For more information, please email FryerE@stpaulsschool.org.uk

Haunted by the presence of his dead daughter Bridget and the very real presence of his irascible wife Bel, the dying Andy muses on guilt, lost loves and his own morality.
