Welcome from James Steward

Dear HIS Community,

This past week, the Peace Riders left HIS early on Monday morning for the mountains and incredible beauty of Yamaguchi. The days were long and challenging. Students were up early each day cooking and preparing for the long days at our daily campsites. Each day, the HIS Team covered about 100 km. Mr Barker ensured that every day had multiple huge climbs to conquer. No climb was too great for our amazing students. The team’s collective fitness and positive attitude was simply superb. All of the year’s training and preparation paid off. 

Thank you to Mr B for his stellar support in the HIS van. Mr B even took to cycling a couple of times as well, though he was concerned about the pain in his gluteus maximus region later in the evening! Dr Peter Skaer also joined us on Monday and Friday for those designated sections of the ride. Finally, thank you to Mr Barker for his superb and unflappable leadership. Mr Barker ensured that the riders remained safe while lending his expert mechanical skills when bicycles occasionally required repair. He is also an excellent rider!

Things don’t slow down as this Friday we look forward to Sports Day!
