A Message From The Headmaster
Issue 1369
dave.jpg SCHOOL SPORTS

It’s been a disappointing summer for the 1st XI soccer squad who have returned early from their tour of Brazil. This is nothing to do with the so-called “Headmaster’s Curse” – they would have lost anyway, even if I hadn’t personally supported them in public – and they were unlucky to meet such strong opposition in the competition.

The school coach Mr Hodgson will, of course, keep his job – there will be no precedent at CoAc for removing leaders just because they have a few bad results! Heaven knows where that would lead.

Anyway, good luck, Murray, A, in the tennis. I am sure you will win it with no problems at all!

D.C.
