1066 and none of all that!

Hotfoot from The Battle of Hastings, commemorating the day of the Battle, at Devonshire Hall, Veteran monologuer Baron Michael Coles, rushed into the astonished assembly with news of the Battle. It soon became apparent from the spluttering utterances of this mail-clad buffoon that all had not gone well! Compulsory French in School, frogs legs and Chanel No. 9, loomed large in the popular eye – yes, all had been tragically perdue and Harold had lost his eye for the main chance! This extraordinary meeting of the Club was pledged in President’s Mead and in none less than the presence of Assistant-District Governor Andrew Wilson and President Barry Mills of Aireborough! The spirit of Standley Holloway and ‘That certain seaside place called Blackpool’ remain securely ensured of immortality and as long as there are anniversaries to be celebrated Headingley Rotary Club will seize the day. But for heaven’s sake, don’t tell Drew that The Battle of Agincourt is coming up next year !

Rotarians at St Peter’s in Autumn

SAM_0513[1]

Monty Reid takes up his new role as a governor of the School. Chris Walbank has been to talk to Class 2 about the toys he played with and the games he played at their age – in his case 1950. They seemed pleased to receive a bag of 96 conkers and a model excavator and they learnt the words of a skipping game Chris used to know.

The week before Half Term 22 – 25 October is International Week. Colette Crossen will be talking to Class 6 about Italy and Headingley Rotarians are invited to sample an assortment of International Food brought in by parents and see the work the children have been doing between 9 and 10 am on Friday 25 October.
