We would like to thank all that participated and assisted in arranging the ìPray for Japanî Concert; especially Kaori, Akiko, Misaki, Kohei and Mayumi, who were tireless in their efforts to make origami birds and collect donations. The concert, which was held on Thursday 7th April, was a remarkable hit.
The programme included a violin trio, (Kaori and her friends), who regaled the audience with elegant and delightful pieces performed to a professional standard, which impressed us all.
Many thanks to Kris and Rebecca, who sang a few popular country classics, much to the obvious delight of everyone. Kris also accompanied Aamir, our Pakistani student, whose beautiful rendition of ìMy Heart Will Go Onî moved the audience.
Our appreciation also extends to Dan, who performed jaw-dropping break-dance moves, and thrilled the crowd.
We were overjoyed to see that so many different nationalities of student pulled together to support this good cause, which raised £1,278.45 through the concert and bazaar; as well as the efforts of our Japanese students during the preceding week.
Many thanks to all that participated and God Bless Japan!
Wishing the Royal couple the very best for the future together

Imperial War Museum
For those of you interested in history, and particularly that of the First and Second World Wars, the Imperial War museum is fantastic. With a life sized display/walk through the First World War trenches and a special major exhibition looking at the home front in Britain through the eyes of children, this is not only a museum but a walk through history, and something all of us should be interested in, as both wars shaped the world we live in today.
