Friday, 12th May was Foundation Day and we enjoyed two very special services, one at the school and one at All Saints’ Church Edmonton, to celebrate our benefactor Edward Latymer. The church service included contributions from Janet, Bird, Chairperson of LOSA, who reminisced about her time at Latymer and she even brought her Latymer beret which we are thinking of bringing back! We would also like to think Ibukun and Reuben who talked about what coming to The Latymer School has meant to them and we finished with a ‘passing on’ service led by our outgoing Senior Pupils, Chi Chi, Lily, Gideon and Ishaan.
In school pupils were treated to presentations from students in Years 8 and Year 9 who had researched key events in 1910, 1940, 1960 and 2017.
Thank you to the Campaign Office for the organisation and to Dr Harrison for the musical presentations. I would like to acknowledge our organist, Jonathan Lack, who has played an enormous part in not only Foundation Day, but also in the Remembrance Assembly and Carol Service.
