The past week or two seems to have seen Christ the King College visited by more people than usual and, as always, it is a pleasure to receive visitors. As a College, in addition to showing prospective families around the sites, we have welcomed a number of senior officers from the newly elected Isle of Wight Council through our doors, in addition to officers from Hampshire, representatives from both Dioceses and a range of other visitors for various purposes. The main reason I share this with you is to report on the unequivocal praise that visitors bestow on the courtesy and behaviour of our students, the warmth of the welcome students give them and the palpable pride they have in their College. I have this week also received a plethora of compliments about our students from the various places that they themselves have been visiting or where they have been involved in activities. Whilst not a comprehensive list, these include the cast and crew of the wonderfully performed ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ at Robin Hill during Half Term; the highly talented Faith and Football team who scooped second prize at their recent competition; all the athletes who represented the College at the Island Athletics on Thursday and the young students who looked immaculate and played in the Steel Band so professionally at the Opening Ceremony for St Francis Primary School in Ventnor. We endeavour to report on these as quickly as possibly through our College website. However, fuller and more detailed reports on all of these and other events will appear in the end of term newsletter, but well done to all students; the Christ the King College community is immensely proud of them. More opportunities for the community to reciprocate by joining us in the coming weeks are being currently advertised. Thank you to those of you already joining us for the Auction of Promises or who have donated promises for the event on June 29th. The annual Creative Arts and Design Show is also fast approaching, coinciding this year with our annual Eisteddfod, an opportunity for students across the College to enter a range of competitions across all subject areas. These two events take place during the same week as the Music Concert and the Information Evening for our new Year 7 parents; certainly, many reasons to visit during the coming weeks when I look forward to seeing you. Of course, this weekend sees many visitors flocking to our beautiful Island for the Isle of Wight Festival. Whilst not wishing to detract from the enjoyment that this annual event will bring to many of our families, please remind any young ‘festival goers’ in your households that full attendance and punctuality at College are still a requirement on Monday morning! Have an enjoyable and safe weekend.
