It is not every day that I hear that a boy in the Removes intends to fold 1,000 origami cranes with the help of his peers. This week Owen Swanborough and the Removes are doing just that. This is the Japanese tradition known as Senbazuru – the belief that this act will make your wish come true. Senbazuru has since become a symbol of hope and healing in challenging times, and now perhaps exemplifies the spirit of our pupils, one of many examples of their creativity.
Creativity and innovation continue to flourish here at KES. Thirty online societies are up and running already, each with as many as 50 members, thriving because of the passion the boys invest in them. The inception of several new clubs – an initiative to build homemade kites, for example, alongside countless acts of service to family and local communities are just some of the stories you will read about in this newsletter. The energy of our pupils seems boundless.
