A reference first to the visit by the children of St.Pierre School last week. Mr. Carter (clearly half wayto his knighthood) received the following e-mail fromthe directrice: Dear Sir Carter, Avec du retard, ungrand merci pour la chaleur et la qualite de votreaccueil. Nous étions très contents de notre journée.Nous esperons vous voir l’année prochaine. A bientôt.’Thank you, the pleasure was all ours and we are alreadylooking forward to next year.As you would expect, lots of extra time has been spentin school this week and over the weekend preparing forthe inspection, which concludes today. (The finalversion of the inspection report, by the way, is issuedto the school by ISI within four weeks of the end ofthe inspection. We shall then make it available to allparents). Those who were in school last Sundaybecame aware of an intense buzzing and remarkableactivity on the white pillar outside my office. A swarmof honey bees was establishing a new colony. JohnGoffin the Bee-man from Gillingham came to therescue at the same time as giving us the benefit of hisconsiderable knowledge about bees. The whole storywas so interesting that I booked him immediately for atalk to the whole school (Monday 25th June).Mrs. Lippard took these amazing photographs.This all seems a long time ago considering all thathas been happening this week—as does theenjoyable visit on Monday by Years 1 and 2 to HallPlace Gardens.Mrs. Britton had some lovely comments about thechildren’s artwork when she attended the ISA Lon-don South Art Exhibition on Tuesday.
