“Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain.”

The Senior School, Sixth Form and parent body enjoyed a series of separate yet truly impactful wellbeing talks with Dick Moore on Friday 1 March 2019.

Dick is a hugely experienced speaker, not just in terms of having spent the last seven years delivering over 350 talks to schools and educational establishments around the world, but because he is man who has gone through the horrors of his own son committing suicide as a result of depression. Since that point, Dick has made it his life mission to equip young adults and teenagers with the coping mechanisms to manage the highs and the lows that life might throw at them. Despite the very sad motivation behind these talks, Dick is a fantastically upbeat and humorous speaker with an unforgettable message – whatever your circumstances, try never to lose sight of all the good things in your life.

This was his second visit to the school, returning by popular demand, and his talks formed a part of our very comprehensive and ongoing wellbeing programme to boost the mental health and happiness of our entire community.
