Our sister school, Schloss Hamborn in Germany, are celebrating their 70th Anniversary tomorrow. Our connections go back a long way and Elmfield was instrumental in helping them start their own journey. To mark this ongoing relationship, Ian Neale and Heather Howes are travelling out to Germany today to represent Elmfield at the celebrations and present a beautiful, specially commissioned, glass plaque to the school. The plaque was made possible through the generosity of the PTFA to whom we are most grateful. It depicts the two schools’ logos and was made by Charlotte Hughes-Martin who is based at the red house glass cone in Stourbridge. We hope the celebrations go well and the whole Schloss Hamborn community have a fabulous day.
Once their celebrations are over, Class 10 from Schloss Hamborn will be travelling over from Germany for their annual visit to Elmfield, arriving on Sunday evening. Our pupils visited them last term and are now eagerly anticipating seeing their new friends again. This visit would not be possible without all the families and staff who are hosting the students in their houses and we really can’t thank you all enough. The highlight of their visit is the Shakespeare Play they have been working on. This year it’s “Taming of the Shrew” and performances are on Friday 29th Sept at 7.30 pm and Saturday 30th Sept at 7.30 pm. The Plays are always wonderful and we hope to see as many of you there as possible.
