50th Anniversary Ambassador’s Visit

On Friday 17th February we had the honour of welcoming Mr Hugh Elliot, British Ambassador to Spain, at Milton House to celebrate Canterbury School’s 50th Anniversary. Many thanks for joining us on such a special occasion, it was an absolute pleasure!

The Ambassador congratulated Mrs Pritchard, who founded the school in 1972 with 17 pupils, for such an extraordinary achievement, and highlighted Canterbury School’s excellence, not only academically but also in the sporting world, particularly in basketball.

We enjoyed wonderful speeches and poems from Secondary and Primary student representatives from San Lorenzo and Maspalomas, as well as a lovely song from our Reception and Year 1 pupils, who behaved beautifully throughout the event.

Our former student Anna Wägner spoke in representation of all Canterbury former students and current parents, sharing some lovely memories of her time as a student at Canterbury School.

To conclude the ceremony, the Ambassador planted the Jubilee Tree with the help of our Head Boy and Head Girl, and was invited to take a tour around the school, followed by refreshments for everyone in the hall.

As we reflect over the last 50 years, we would like to thank everyone involved in helping make Canterbury School what it is today. The contribution of students, staff and parents over the last 50 years has been essential. You are all part of the Canterbury School community, which is the heart of our school.
