THE SIXTH FORM SOCIETY is one in which the initiative comes essentially from the boys. It was formed at the end of the last Easter Term with 25 members. A few more members were elected in the Summer Term.
The Society is both a cultural and social Society. On the cultural side two talks were given. The first by Mr. Hodges, a well-known commercial artist, who talked on 'Modern Art" and the second by Mr. Leslie Paul, author and journalist, and Vice-President of the Council for Christian Action, who gave a very interesting talk on "Teddy Boys".
The most enjoyable activity that the Society had was a 50-mile cycle rally to Clacton. Out of the 16 groups that set outonly three groups arrived back at School without being disqualified. Congratulations go to Mayer and O'Loughlin for winning the rally.
The end of term dance was a combined Dancing Club-Sixth Form Society function. I hope that the Society will soon be able to take over the organisation of such dances. If suggestions are forthcoming from the members and all show enthusiasm I am sure the Society will flourish. During the winter terms the Society should show considerable progress as there are no examinations to interrupt the terms and film shows and discussions as well as talks and a theatre outing will probably be possible.
