'In idyllic sunny weather in late May, the Prefects, Senior Management Team and Housemasters gathered for the annual Prefect’s Dinner, a chance to look back on the year with fondness.
The evening began with a drinks reception, followed by a delicious three-course meal, kindly put on by the Cokethorpe Catering Staff. Conversation flowed from reflection of the Prefects careers here at Cokethorpe, to where we would heading next year, and even as far back as to the staff’s school-days. Mr Stevens provided a sincere speech concerning Mr Maskery, noting his extensive contribution to the School. As always, the Mr Maskery provided an all-encompassing and hotly contested quiz that pitted teams against one another, resulting in a single point difference victory for the team dominated by Swift House.
The Prefect body wishes to thank Mr Stevens for supporting us, and hearing our thoughts upon daily school issues and topics every week. We all hope that we have made a positive contribution to the School’s future, and I am confident that we have.'
