                  into the

          Advice for the graduating
          “My advice is always the same – make use of
        every opportunity that you have and don’t keep                                                            headmaster’s  interview
        doing the same thing. Entering a completely
        different chapter of your lives next year, embrace
        the uncertain and delve into the new. If you don’t
        consider yourself much of a sportsperson, maybe
        join the canoe club, or if you’ve never experienced
        public speaking, join the political society. You’re
        never going to get 3-4 years like this again. Make
        the most of every opportunity because it’s a gift
        you’ll never be given again.” And if I can add, I hope
        that we keep dreaming big, despite the increased
        adversity of the past few years. One thing that
        came across as a certainty from my discussion with
        Mr Lambon, is that the path isn’t linear. Whichever                                                    05
        path you’re on, and wherever you’re aiming to go,
        don’t shy away from change – the path is meant to
        meander a little (or a lot) – that’s how it is.
          Oh, and in case you are wondering about the
        professional golfer aspirations, I should add that
        although Mr Lambon is trying to come to terms
        with the fact that it is unlikely that he will fulfil his
        dream of following a golf career, he seems to have
        settled for a more realistic future involvement in
        sport – “My wife and I think it’s more likely that I’ll
        retire In the next ten years and I’ll take a job cutting
        grass at the golf course” – that doesn’t sound like
        an all-that-bad plan to me!                                                            Nefeli Savvidou 6J
