November 2023 - Wine Tasting Evening
A lot of fun was had by all at our Wine Tasting Evening. Our guests were entertained and thoroughly impressed by the very talented Year 11 Jazz Ensemble, who provided a fantastic start to the evening. Everyone then enjoyed tasting five amazing wines chosen by Flagship Wines in St Albans, who guided us through the tasting.
November 2021 – this was the first opportunity to welcome year 7 and 8 parents onto the site having been kept away as a result of the pandemic. We held a very enjoyable wine and beer tasting event, the first event run by the new committee. Definitely an event to be repeated but we learnt that the ambience of the school canteen needs some work so we’ll be prepared with the remote control for the lighting for future events!
March 2022 – saw the return of the very popular Quiz Evening after a two-year gap. The evening was able to run smoothly as so many parents volunteered their time to help and over 150 parents and staff attended. Jon, our Quiz Host did a great job and everyone enjoyed the Godfreys supper, a well-stocked bar and there was a great buzz going on. Students from year 10 who were raising money for their World Challenge to Eswatini in 2023 ran a Raffle with a very extensive list of prizes. They also did lots of running around for us, giving out food, sauces and cutlery! Look out for the Quiz Night for the 2022/23 school year!
FESTIVAL ON THE FIELD 2022 - This incredible and extremely popular event is held every two years and has its own special committee. After two cancellations, this year’s Festival featured a number of great tribute bands as well as Stratton 5 – all students of SJL.
