Founder’s Day

By 02/02/2024 No Comments

Students and staff celebrated Heathfield’s 125th Founder’s Day on Friday 2 February. Events commenced with a gripping talk from Ben Heason, professional climber, who talked about his life-long passion for climbing which culminated with him leading the first team to successfully ascend the highest waterfall in the world – Angel Falls in Venezuela, which stands at 3,212ft high. An energetic whole school House challenge followed with a well-deserved House tea where students enjoyed the delicious 125 Heathfield cake. Founder’s Day Chapel was followed by a closely fought House Tug of War with Seacole emerging as the triumphant House. After a superb supper for which the students had chosen the menu, the day was wrapped up by evening entertainment organised by the students.
