Scholars’ Dinner Honours Academic Achievements

Apr 30, 2024

This year’s Scholar’s Dinner was, as always, a delightful event where our Scholars and their parents had the opportunity to convene as an erudite community for a night of great conversation and fabulous food. It also marked the successful conclusion of their articles presented in the recently published Scholars’ Journal. We were delighted to welcome Sir Ralph Waller, an eminent theologian from Oxford University, who – through various allegories – encouraged the audience in their academic endeavours.

Sir Ralph spoke about his friend who, on a mission in the Amazon rainforest, discovered in the middle of the night that his whole arm up to his shoulder had been swallowed by a snake. After telling us about the eventual chopping of the snake, and freeing the largely unharmed arm, Sir Ralph explained that life is like a game of snakes and ladders: with a mixture of luck and disappointment.

His inspiring words, the spirited conversations and the hard work of the Catering Department created an atmosphere of intellectual fervour. Many thanks to all involved for a truly wonderful evening.
