The formal invitations from Mrs Brownsdon were sent last week and every boy RSVPd to say he would be delighted to attend the Year 8 Leaver’s dinner. This wonderful New Beacon Tradition saw our 40 Year 8 boys join senior staff in black tie to celebrate not only the end of the Year 8 programme but the end of their time here at school. After some minor confusion about the reason for two knives and forks which Mrs Yeats Brown kindly cleared up, the boys enjoyed a fabulous three course meal where they were waited on by our dedicated catering team. The after-dinner speeches given by our two Head Boys were a moving tribute to their years at the school and recognition of the wonderful time they have spent here and carriages at 8 were timed to perfection.
