Farewell Friends

Well, we have arrived at the last weekend of what has been a very strange year in Bolton House, at SMUS and in the world. Once more, we would like to say how immensely proud we are of every one of the boys in Bolton for their resilience, kindness and hard work. There is no doubt that we will all look back on this year with wonder that we got through it.

As this is the final weekend, there have been a lot of goodbyes with guys departing early to start their quarantine periods around the world. That means lots of early test writing like Will did for Mr. Fryer’s math class.

On the note of Mathematics, a big congratulations to Josh M for being the American Mathematics Competition 12 School Champion this year. It is no small feat to beat out the incredible level of talent that our school possesses in the realm of mathematics!

It was also the final rugby practice for the Grade 11 boys. They donned the Alumni game black jerseys for a final team run. The improvement over the last few months has been significant and we are well positioned for a strong season next year when school sports hopefully resume.

We also celebrated a final Bolton birthday for Dylan. His parents kindly provided snacks for all the students including cookies, chips and drinks; a perfect antidote to the doldrums of the last week of school assignments and tests!

Leo send us some photos from the last few weeks of school after he left – what an eye! Proof that he was deserving of the award for “Visual Artiste” at our closing dinner.

Ryan was part of the final Grade 11 and 12 Strings concert that was performed in front of the music building at lunch. The sounds were amazing, especially when they played the theme from the Queen’s Gambit!

Even the Headmaster, Mr. Turner, was present to honour long serving teacher Ms. Williams who is retiring at the end of this year. What a cool way to finish the year.

Some of Ryan’s groupies were there to cheer him on!

From all of us in Bolton House: Have a safe and fun summer wherever your destination may be and THNAK YOU for an amazing year!

This will be our last post until September. To all the parents, guardians and friends, thank you for your trust in us and for all of your support this year, we couldn’t do it without you.
