Do you remember your final assembly?

For many years, it has been a KEHS tradition to read ‘Desiderata’ to the leaving Upper Sixth in their final assembly. For many years, that honour was held by English teacher and alumna, Mrs Moule.

‘Desiderata’ is a prose poem by Max Erhmann, sharing advice for a meaningful and peaceful adult life – the perfect entrance into the Upper Sixth’s adult lives, as Old Edwardians.

We hope that our alumnae will join the leaving Upper Sixth in spirit today, by listening to Mrs Moule’s recording and reminiscing about their own final day at KEHS.

You can listen to the poem itself (3m 04) or the poem with Mrs Moule’s commentary (5m 06) below.
