Last week we had the privilege of a visit from renowned photographer Mark Edwards. A long term friend of Brockwood, Mark in his early days photographed Krishnamurti a great deal and took striking portraits of him both in England and India. Mark has donated many photos to Brockwood Park and we are all most grateful to him and wish him the best of luck in his increasingly successful global sustainability project:

Can a song have a spirit of enquiry? This song, in the Deep House genre, tries. In “Imprint of pleasure”, by Tube & Berger, from their 2014 album “Pleasure Dip EP”, Krishnamurti can be heard several times asking the question, “First of all, why has man given such importance to pleasure?”
You may read the full talk from which the question was taken (Saanen 1980) here:
There is a particular question that can be heard echoed in the morning hours at Brockwood Park School; that question being, “what’s for lunch?”. Today’s menu sounds amazing.
Kitchen staff are preparing a delicious Italian-inspired lunch today. They are making two types of risotto: Lemon and Leek & Apple and Walnut. The risotto will be complimented with roasted beetroot and carrot, garden salad and fresh bruschetta. We have an incredible kitchen staff at Brockwood who work hard each day to serve the Brockwood community delectable food.
Former Brockwood Park School student, Josh Alexander, will have his first solo exhibition of original work, including film and photos that he took using a camera obscura, in London. The exhibition dates are May 15-22 and will be at the Hardy Tree Gallery.
Once a year, in springtime, bluebells return to the woodlands around Brockwood Park. The hyacinthoides non-scripta is known in English as the common bluebell or simply bluebell. Bluebells are particularly associated with ancient woodland where they may dominate the understorey to produce carpets of violet–blue flowers in “bluebell woods”.The flower is protected under UK law. Here we share with you some photos taken recently in the surrounding woodlands. (Photos by James Duncan MacDougall and Francesca Sayer.)
Recently we had a visit from Kael Del Campo, former Brockwood student (2002-2005), who brought with him a copy of his book Landscapes and Lifeskills. After leaving Brockwood with A Level exams in maths, physics and Spanish, Kael had a gap year in India most of which was spent teaching at a school in Auroville. He then attended the University of Exeter to study physics, gaining a double-first, honours degree and having spent his 3rd year studying at the University of Auckland in New Zealand.
