Meet the Committee of 2016/17

At the first assembly of the year, the Ascensio Scholarum, the new Headmaster Mr John Browne greeted all the staff and students of Stonyhurst College.  He encouraged everyone to make the most of the many opportunities available to them, to question, to think and stretch themselves academically.  His advice included the maxim ‘Be mindful of the 3 Ps – be prepared, be punctual and be fully present at all times.’

The new Committee, who have already started their year of leadership responsibilities through an excellent job of meeting and supporting new parents and students over the last few days, were presented with their Committee ties.

Mr Browne reminded the school that the Committee’s position was not one of greater power but one of greater service to others and these young people have been chosen because of their qualities of service, generosity and considerate leadership.  We wish them all the best through what will be a busy year ahead.
