Peter Willetts and John Wishney had a wonderful day manning the AoH stand at the British Airways Global Community and Conservation Day. Gary Lineker presented awards to a number of great British Airways staff who support charities in the UK and overseas. We shared the BA Street at their Waterside headquarters with a number of charities and conservation groups which the airline supports. We also had the opportunity to represent AoH to supportive BA employees and to network with like minded organisations. The Christmas Tree decorations were a big hit. Finally, we would like to thank BA for their hospitality and support.
We look forward to welcoming AoH supporters to the Christmas “Nibbles and Drinks” chez the Chairman. We are promised interesting fare.
AoH has been invited to The British Airways Communities and Conservation Day at the corporate headquarters on Wednesday 7th Dec. We will have a stand on the BA “Street”.
On Dec 8th is the Maltmans Green School Carol Concert in aid of Acts of Hope.
On Dec 18th AoH will be at the “Christmas in the Woodland” day at the Chiltern Woodland Burial Park along with Santa and the Wycombe Philharmonic Choir. Proceeds from the day are going to The Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Wednesday 30th November
Peter returned from Bangalore today. The British Airways Flight was on time and it took twenty five minutes to pick up bags and clear border control.
I am proud of the exceptionally high standard of teaching and congratulate the staff and of course the children and their parents. Everyone works so hard.
We had a school cricket match, girls versus boys. It was a great match and I had better not say much more as I am sure any perceived bias will get me into trouble. Well done Acts of Hope!
My time has been taken with up with familiarisation, fact finding, board meetings, parent meetings and the new school site. However, I have found time to enjoy the vegetarian curries, get lost, ride on a motor bike pillion and test the school information and communications technology.
A fuller report for this the last quarterly review of 2011 will be circulated.
