Bonfire and Fireworks
The early morning drizzle had passed and the clouds split to reveal a banner of stars just in time for Mariella Costa-Duarte and Harry Jowett, our youngest two Highfieldians, to perform the honour of lighting the bonfire. Rapunzel, sat proudly atop the largest fire in recent memory, flanked by Voldemort and Superman; an extraordinary effort from all the Houses this year; they were all winners!
As the fire took hold, Mariella and Harry started the countdown to another until the moment for the traditional toffee apples.
Not only did we enjoy what we believe to have been the largest attendance in recent years, but it was also the most diverse in terms of Old Highfieldians and families attending. This is a magical evening for young and old alike, so to share it with so many friends, past and present makes it all the more special.
As ever, the whole school community is enormously grateful to all members of the grounds, maintenance and catering teams who make it all a possibility.
