Cyber Safety

Sep 27, '14

“Hello, I'm Beth. And I'm fifteen,” Darren Lauer crooned to us. At first, this man (who was so obviously not fifteen and not named Beth) made us laugh. And then he made us think.

Sep 10, '14

I am from logical thoughts, math, physics and chemistry. Equations and functions made up my bones, curiosity accelerates in my blood, delivers thermal energy into my heart. I am from the Spring Festival reunion, the steamed fish, dumplings and fireworks-lightened night. I am from the shuffled Poker cards, myth telling, pumping up and...

We are Family

Sep 05, '14

Classes start in earnest today. The last few returning students arrived yesterday. One of the things that always strike me at the beginning of a new year is the emotions students show when they first see each other again after the summer holidays.

Whittall Squashed the Competition

Feb 14, '14

On Saturday, February 1st four teams took to the courts to battle it out in 2014's Interhouse Squash Tournament. Claimed by many to be a lesser sport, squash actually claims one of the highest number of applicants in winter term: this year 43 people signed up for just 20 available spots. The tournament was laid out as follows: four teams of...
