Our Guests of Honour, Dr. Alan Megahey, the Rector and Mrs. Calderwood, Governors, invited guests, parents and girls of Peterhouse, I welcome you to our annual Speech Day and Prize Giving.

Nineteen years ago, in this Chapel, "the then Rector" of Peterhouse welcomed Jenny and I into the Peterhouse family - I was the Headmaster Designate of Springvale House. Today it gives me great pleasure to welcome "the then Rector" of Peterhouse , Dr Alan Megahey, as our Guest of Honour at Speech Day.
