Fantastic effort by the Wildern Philosothon team for 2019! We did not win, however the quality of the philosophical debate and the maturity shown was outstanding. Out of the three dialogues, two of our students won the "Star Philosopher" awards, which was especially significant given that our star philosophers were from Year 7 and 8 and the students competing were from Year 7 to 11!

The Wildern Girls did exceptionally well at the London Olympic Pool against a very high standard of swimming. Schools who specialise in swimming, Millfield and Mount Kelly, had a few Teams entered, and were difficult to beat. But in swimming it's down to 10ths, 100ths of a second, and I am very pleased to report that the girls held their own and gained 5 more places up the rankings from when they were selected for the final.

As we draw to the close of yet another year we would like to begin by extending our sincere thanks to you all for your continued support of all we do at Wildern. Not simply the support of your sons and daughters but our whole school events and information evenings. We frequently talk about our partnership which is critical in securing the best outcomes and support for your youngsters. Parents’ attendance at all our events has been overwhelmingly positive and sends a clear message to our students that we are here for them.

During the Spring term, students and staff alike were busy taking photographs that they submitted to the Photography Competition run by the Rotary Club on the theme of A Moment In Time. On the 8th May Ringwood School held a prize-giving ceremony, where students and staff were invited to celebrate their fantastic efforts. In the category Years, 7-10 there were over 500 entries where Ryan Cousins and Toby Dean were shortlisted and received certificates in highly commended. In the adult category, Mr. Rodregez also received a highly commended certificate. Overall, the evening and the competition was a great success and a wonderful opportunity to be creative!
