Year 8 Guest Night

On Tuesday evening the Year 8 boys hosted a wonderful range of visitors for our annual Year 8 Guest Night; from grandparents to godparents, family friends to music teachers, it was lovely to meet them all. It was particularly special to welcome back no fewer than four ESA members amongst our guests this year, who enjoyed reminiscing about their time at Elstree.   They enjoyed a wander round the grounds in the evening sun before drinks and canapés on the lawn outside the dining room.  Lara and her team produced a delicious dinner and there was plenty of chatter and catching up.

The Year 7 boys were the most attentive waiters, topping up glasses and looking after all the guests impeccably.  Fortunately extra time in the England v. Colombia game, meant that we could catch the last half hour of the football, and … the penalties!   The atmosphere in the Long Room was electric, and the cheering indescribable.  What a fantastic way to finish off a special and memorable evening.
