On Tuesday afternoon Senior School scholars enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea to welcome and congratulate girls who have been awarded scholarships from September 2022. Guests included new scholars who are joining The Mount in September.
Hosted by Principal David Griffiths, the pupils enjoyed cream scones, cakes and hot chocolate. They were joined by teaching staff from across the School who represent the Academic, Art, Music, Performing Arts and Sport Scholarships.
Mr Griffiths welcomed the scholars, asking if anyone knew the meaning of the word. He invited the scholars to understand their ability to ‘give back’ by inspiring others around them to do their best. After posing for a group photo the girls were encouraged to speak to one another about their different scholarships and how they can help to inspire others. The room was a buzz with chatter as girls from different year groups enjoyed chatting over their hot chocolate and cakes!
