The Week Ahead 

 Saturday, 14th January to Saturday, 21st January

Those of us who live on-site know that College is just not the same without its students, so it was wonderful to welcome everyone back for the start of a new term.  The Lent term is much shorter than the Michaelmas marathon, but will be equally packed – and, if anything, even more vibrant and exciting.  On which note I would like to draw your attention to What’s On, the Wellington Community programme, which you should have received in the post but which can be found here.   The offering for the wider Wellington Community continues to grow under Murray Lindo’s leadership and I am sure you will agree there is something for everyone in this programme.   The engagement with the College of parents, OWs and local residents is one of its unique features, so I would strongly encourage you to participate – I guarantee you will find something that will stimulate and engage you, and I look forward to seeing you at many of the events.  I would like to end by taking the opportunity to wish you and your families a happy and fulfilling New Year.
