Open Evening 2022

I’m quite disciplined in when I write my blog – usually either a Thursday evening or a Friday morning. Occasionally I write my blog late at night after a school event, such as a school production, or in this case the 2022 Open Evening.

Covid meant that we haven’t been able to hold a real-life Open Evening since 2019, three long years ago. Tonight’s event was therefore special for more than one reason, and I was thrilled to see how vibrant and exciting the school felt. Despite the persistent rain, upwards of 500 families joined us over the evening and all three of the talks in the hall were standing room only. The staff put on a great display in each subject and were ably assisted by almost 200 student helpers and guides. There was an overwhelmingly positive feeling from so many people and it was lovely to bump into a great many parents who already have children at the school, but who due to the pandemic we haven’t seen in years.

So, thank you to my colleagues, the students and everybody who attended our 2022 Open Evening. It was a really special evening and made me prouder than ever to work at our wonderful MHS.

Have a great weekend,

Joe Barker
