On the 2nd of November, the ES community came together to honour the visionary behind our esteemed School. The day was marked with a series of events that not only paid homage to our roots but also celebrated our collective spirit.

The commemoration began with the Year 1 Assembly and tree planting event, a tradition that allows us to give back to nature and remember our founder’s commitment to growth and sustainability.
During the assembly, our Headmaster spoke about our Founder and our rich history to our Year 1 Students, followed by the traditional tree planting event, a symbolic gesture - planting a tree that will stand as a testament to our founder's enduring legacy.

As the day unfolded, the sports fields buzzed with enthusiasm. Our young athletes in Years 1 and 2 kicked off with a 'Come and Try' Korfball event, embracing the essence of learning and teamwork. The Junior Girls Basketball Finals saw Years 1-3 displaying exceptional talent, embodying the competitive yet fair play spirit of our school.

The futsal pitches echoed with cheers as Boys and Girls from Years 3 to 5 competed in the Inter-House Competition, demonstrating agility and sportsmanship. Meanwhile, the Boys 7-a-Side Football Tournament for Years 6 and 7 displayed strategy and skill, adding to the day’s thrilling atmosphere.

A highlight was the Staff vs Students Volleyball Match, a crowd-favourite that reminded us of the close-knit community we are privileged to be a part of.

As the sun set, the celebrations transitioned to the Lower School and Upper School Founder's Day Award Celebrations.
More information will follow to honour our award winners. 

The festivities will continue on Saturday, 4th November, with the much-anticipated Viva La Vida BQ Event.

During this Founder's Day Celebrations on the 2nd of November, we did not just plant a tree but created memories, not just played games but built bonds, and not just celebrated history but created it. As we look forward to Viva La Vida BQ night, let’s carry our Founder’s vision in our hearts. Join us at the Viva La Vida BQ Night – let's make this celebration one for the history books!
