Dulwich shines at Open Morning
What a wonderful day we had on Saturday at the whole school Open Morning. We were joined by Dulwich families past, present and future as the school opened its doors and welcomed all visitors.
The school was bathed in sunshine for the many activities on offer, from tug of war to water polo demonstrations, boules to country dancing, there was something for everyone. There were many favourable comments about the sensational artwork on display throughout the school, from the African art in Year 1 to the Year 8 leavers’ project based on identity, inspired by artist Maurizio Anzerio.
The boarders’ Bake Off saw some inventive decorating of cupcakes, and boarding staff welcomed visitors into The Manor House. Music was heard throughout the school from the Little Stream String Orchestra and Year 4 Recorders, Jazz Band, String and Guitar Ensembles. Year 6 brought the enchanted forest of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ to life with their performance in the Rose Garden.
Our Dulwich alumni put up a great show in their Alumni v 1st Rounders match, narrowly beating the girls. Honours were even however, with the school victorious in the Cricket v Alumni match, with 4 runs to spare. The Alumni Drinks Reception in the Morrison Gallery was very well attended, and we were delighted to welcome amongst others one of our original pupils evacuated to Cranbrook at the outbreak of World War II. The archive boarding exhibition brought back many memories.
