Prize Giving brought the term to a fitting close with glorious sunshine and it was a lovely day to give our Form 8 leavers the perfect send off. Mr David Nisbet, Chairman of Governors, thanked the parents for their continued support of the school and hoped all the children leaving today would look back on their time at Cargilfield as a very special time in their lives. The Headmaster then recalled some of the highlights of the year, many of which were linked to the extreme weather we have had, both in winter and in the summer, before the prizes were handed out.

Then it was time for the leavers, their parents and staff to gather for lunch before the goodbyes began and everyone headed their separate ways. Have a wonderful summer holiday!

Well, what a brilliant day we had for the annual Pentland Round walk today. Glorious sunshine and blue skies with a cooling breeze on top of the hills, and so many children, staff and parents walking for charity from P1 right through to Form 8. A tremendous whole school event which sees the Cargilfield community at its very best walking over 20km in the Pentland Hills! Well done everybody!

Robert Frost and The Road Not Taken

One of the privileges of being an English teacher is that the ‘syllabus’ is….well…..there isn’t one really! Rather selfishly, I get to choose the books and poems that we are going to read in class, with there being no literary canon or list of set texts at this age group. My job has to be to expose the children to a varied diet of literature, as well as covering and reinforcing the necessary but far less interesting aspects of grammar and punctuation!

Someone asked me not too long ago, what my favourite poem was……Hmm, now that is a difficult decision, it really is! This week, it could be the book by Dr Seuss ‘Oh, the places you’ll go’, a wonderful narrative poem if ever there was one, but next week it could be something else. In a world full of wonderful literature, sharing these nuggets by Keats, Hughes, Heaney with young and impressionable children, and exploring the words within them, is one of the real highlights of my job here and one which excites me every day I step in to my classroom.

And so, at this tail end of the academic year, with a number of children having spent ten years in some cases at Cargilfield, now about to head off for exciting adventures at their new schools, many of them dotted around the UK but bound together with that bond of having been together for so long, perhaps my favourite poem today is Robert Frost’s ‘The Road not Taken’, an ambiguous poem about choices, whether to go it alone or to follow everyone else. But just how easy is it to take ‘the road less travelled by’? It is an easy thing for us to say to our Leavers, to be individuals, make your own choices in life and stand out from the crowd; yet as a nervous 13 year old, starting life again in a new and very different environment, this is often easier said than done. There have always been times when difficult choices have to be made, and I remember pondering these when I was a boy at Shrewsbury many years ago; but in today’s fast paced and hi tech world which our children live in today, the choices seem to never stop, just like the pinging of their mobile phone!

Robert Frost wrote the poem to poke fun at Edward Thomas, the English/Welsh poet, who when out walking with Frost would often regret not having taken a different path in his life. Thomas would talk to Frost about the regrets he has, and what other things he might have done had he had the chance to go back and do them again. In other words, Thomas regretted not taking the road that might have offered the best opportunities, despite it being an unknown. Of course, as humans, we always wish we had taken a different road, being naturally curious and never satisfied with our lot. We are always asking ‘What if…?’

The Road Not Taken is all about what did not happen – this unnamed person, faced with an important conscious decision, chose the least popular, the path of most resistance, if you like. He was destined to go down one, regretted not being able to take both, so he sacrificed one for the other.

Ultimately, we are left to make up our own minds about how the speaker is feeling at the end of the poem and about the decision they have taken. Was the choice of the road less travelled a positive one? It certainly made all the difference but Frost does not make it clear just what this difference is.

The Road not Taken by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

The poem presents the speaker and the reader with a dilemma. There are two roads in an autumnal wood at a fork, and there’s nothing else for it but to choose one of the roads and continue life’s journey…..but perhaps always wondering what might have happened had he taken the other road.

A metaphor for life, and one which has passed in to cliché almost, especially when talking to children and the decisions they will face, which is perhaps even more pertinent as our Leavers take a deep breath and step out in to the unknown, each of them sad to be leaving the safe and familiar world of Cargilfield which has been a home for so long, but also wanting to break free from the shackles, explore new worlds and find new friends, and perhaps to take that ‘Road less travelled by’.

Life offers two choices, both are valid but the outcomes could be vastly different. Which road to take, and who knows which road will be best? But who knows what the future holds down the road? The speaker implies that, perhaps when he’s older he might look back at this turning point in his life, the morning he took the road less travelled, because taking that particular route completely altered his life….but when choosing that path, the sense of excitement, of wonder, and even of fear exists….what will the ‘Road less travelled by’ bring?

That is the question our Leavers are wondering as their time at Cargilfield slowly draws to a close with exciting new adventures about to start. Who knows which road is the right road? Be brave, be bold but be yourself.

We wish them all luck wherever their road takes them and haste ye back!

Today was our 1st French spelling bee competition! Over the last 2 months, children in Form 6 have been learning over 30 words towards this challenge. They had one minute to correctly spell as many words as possible without using any prompts. Points were awarded in the following way: Article, Translation/Pronunciation, and spelling ( including accents).

The grand winner was Rose with 29 words !! A fantastic start for our 1st in school competition. However, this is not the end as the children will have the opportunity next year to compete In the national competition.

What a super senior concert we enjoyed this afternoon! We heard some marvellous ensembles and individuals all based around an American theme, and the Chapel Choir gave a beautiful rendition of Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen to bring proceedings to an end. Well done to all those who took part, to the parents who came to watch and to all the peripatetic music staff who prepared the children so well!

It has been a strange season in many ways! Firstly, we have had almost unbroken sunshine for the whole of the term which has made for hard and fast outfields, and pitches with a good carry and bounce – most unusual in Scotland, it must be said; secondly, as a batting unit, we have scored over 150 on numerous occasions which is rare in 25 over cricket; and thirdly, our bowling attack, which promised so much throughout the winter nets, did not quite function and too many loose balls relieved the pressure on the batsmen and runs came too easily considering the potential quality of our attack. All that said, it has, once again, been a hugely enjoyable summer of cricket, with a keen and hard working group of boys who have worked well together as a team, with no stand out individuals, but everyone working hard together. Good to see.

It is always nice to end the season in style, and what a game we had this afternoon played in very hot sunshine and very kindly hosted by Glenalmond College. It was a real treat to play on their 1stXI square and on a hard true surface, we would have hoped to have scored plenty of runs after winning the toss and choosing to bat. However, this did not materialise! Firstly, we were without the captain, Harry, who was playing for the Eastern Knights U14 representative side, and secondly, Ardvreck possessed a very useful bowling attack, led by a very tall and fast opening bowler who had destroyed a number of teams this season. We lost wickets at regular intervals, although kept the scoreboard ticking along through some excellent running between the wickets: Charlie and Findlay batted well before playing poor shots, and all we needed was the lower order to hang around with Todd, who batted superbly given the conditions. Unfortunately, despite being given lots of advice by Todd, the lower middle order threw their wickets away, and we limped to 71 all out in only the 16th over. Not a great batting performance if truth be told, and we have shown on numerous occasions this year that we are better than that. Picking up singles, rotating the strike and occupying the crease means runs will be scored, and in a low scoring match, every run is crucial.

In reply, we took a wicket second ball, as their opener edged an excellent ball from VJ and Todd did the rest behind the stumps. Interesting, but that brought their giant opening bowler in to bat who proceeded to crack his first ball to the boundary. Oh dear, the omens did not look good. Then the moment that changed the game. Marcus in to bowl, the other opener hit the ball hard but in the air straight at cover; VJ dropped the catch and the batsmen went for the run; VJ picked up and threw the ball to Todd who whipped off the bails and their captain, giant and star cricketer was run out. 7 for 2 and game on! Defending a low score, it is so important that the fielding is top drawer and today it was; everyone supported the bowlers and Ardvreck found run scoring very difficult indeed. Findlay, bowling his leg spin, bamboozled the batsmen, and when Marcus took a great catch close in at cover, it left them 46 for 6. 25 to win, and 4 wickets for us to get. The score crept up, balls fell agonisingly short of the fielders who were in close looking for the catch, and then William came on and bowled a superb 5 over spell of accurate left arm over seam bowlingl, taking two wickets and only conceding a handful of runs; it was a match winning performance if ever there was one! It was left to Rory to take the final wicket, with just five runs required by Ardvreck, and cue the celebrations! A richly deserved win, and one that showed the value of teamwork, determination and the effect of good, accurate bowling on nervous batsmen trying to reach a low target.

Huge congratulations to the whole team on what was an excellent fielding and bowling effort today. To win the final game of the season, without the skipper, says a lot about this group of boys. They have worked so hard all year with their rugby, hockey and cricket, and although results have not always gone their way, they have kept going and this ‘never say die’ attitude paid dividends today. Well played everyone!
