Many thanks to YMS Governor Stuart Mitchell for coming to the School last night to talk to pupils about the trek to South Pole he undertook last December in aid of our Anniversary Appeal - raising more than £70,000 in the process. It was a riveting and entertaining evening. There were many questions afterwards, some wonderful pictures and film sequences, and we very much enjoyed watching Jeff Wu dress up in Stuart's expedition gear - which had to weather temperatures as low as minus 50 degrees C.

We are extremely grateful to Stuart, both for making space in his busy schedule to come and talk to us, and for his commitment to the School, not just through this wonderful and practical demonstration of his support but also through all the work he does as Chairman of our Appeal Committee.
