Hunterhouse College fosters a strong sense of community between staff and pupils, reflecting the school motto ‘Una Crescamus’ – ‘Let us grow together’. Throughout their time at Hunterhouse pupils will experience inspiring teaching, strong encouraging peer support and committed pastoral care. The school is unique in its delightful natural setting, child-centred environment and the warmth of pupils and staff.
Hunterhouse College recently held a week of celebrations to mark European Day of Languages on Friday 26th September. Redwood’s menus for last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday were translated into French, German and Spanish and on Friday the restaurant was converted into Café Europe.Staff and students were invited to use their language skills to purchase a hot chocolate and a continental pastry.
On Wednesday we had a very well-attended quiz in the LRC called “How multi-cultural are your teachers?” Teachers had to recognise flags and landmarks, identify (while blind-folded) foods from around the world and name the languages they could hear. For the latter we had invited five Hunterhouse College students to speak for a short while in the language they spoke at home. The event was enjoyed by all who came.
Mrs Eileen Patterson M.B.E. was the Deputy Headmistress of Hunterhouse College from 1987-1996. She had previously taught at RBAI and at Ashleigh House School where she was Head of English from 1976-1987.
