Dear Friends

We are pleased to be able to announce that on Saturday, 5th December, the new website for Brockwood Park School will be launched. We would like to invite you to take a little time out on your weekend to visit us at www.brockwood.org.uk and explore what Brockwood is up to. Besides having a completely new look with excellent images, additional new text, and many downloads, you will also find an up-to-date account of news and events at Brockwood including the latest Brockwood Observer. Take some extra time to look at The Brockwood Blog – blog.brockwood.org.uk – where many items from current students, staff and alumni are posted.

If you are a former student or staff member of Brockwood, then be sure to visit the Alumni section of the School website. Here, amongst other things, you will find the new Alumni Directory. This is a password protected directory for the use of alumni only. You will have to register your details before having access to those of others, but we think that you will find that this directory offers a simple and efficient means of keeping informed about your old school friends, whilst enabling you to network and make new ones.

With a new look and feel, we are interested to know what you think about the new site and blog. Please send any comments or suggestions to feedback@brockwood.org.uk.

We hope you have a marvellous festive season.

With best wishes

Brockwood Students, Staff and Trustees

African sunset in a poetic/ naturalistic form

As I sit, my senses are alive.

The rock I rest on, so warm from the days sun.

My eyes fixed on the spell of bright colours filling the evening sky.

Oranges, pinks, yellows and reds all leaking into each other like a pallet of watercolours.

The gentle breeze sweeps the sand along the beach and sways the palm trees leaves, back and forth. Tropical insects begin to scatter around high and low, rattling, screeching and tapping.

The fresh smell of salt water drifts under my nose.

The blinding ball of fire sits perfectly in the horizon, where the sea and sky meet. Until I take a deep breath and it sinks, so fast, leaving the clouds alone, but still injecting them with life and colour. Suddenly everything becomes so calm, the moon gets brighter and the stars begin to emerge, it is dark but my senses are still alive.
