THIS WEEK boys entered School Assembly to find the words All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy provocatively displayed on the screen. In his talk, our Director of Co-Curricular and House Activity, Major Burton, reminded boys and staff that, as far back as 1615, activity beyond the classroom was not just encouraged but expected of Wilsonians! Although we rather frown on 'leaping' these days (unlike Edward Wilson, who encouraged this in the school's original rules) the principle of getting stuck in is exactly the same 400 years on. This message was important for our newest generation of Wilsonians, all of whom we want to see involved in something they enjoy. But the message is also an important reminder to those in the Upper School: that even with public examinations looming, finding a balance between work and play is important—balance being the important word!

Every year we set out with the ambitious aim of enabling 100% involvement: in other words, trying to ensure that all of our boys are involved in something that absorbs them outside of the classroom. With the publication of the Co-curricular Timetable, perhaps the time is ripe for your son to think 'what else might I do?'
