It was all change once again at Rosemead Preparatory School and Nursery where a new Headmaster was installed – just for the day!
After only joining the school as Headmaster in September, Mr Phil Soutar found himself cast aside as Mr Magnus Tibbalds, age 8, took over the running of the school for the day. Magnus had won this fantastic opportunity in a competition and took to the role effortlessly.
After greeting parents and pupils at the school gate, Mr Tibbalds then led the Celebration Assemblies in both the Prep and Pre-Prep departments. He joined the teachers for coffee at breaktime and had lunch with members of the Senior Leadership team. He was able to tour the classrooms to check on learning and signed some important letters with the Head’s PA.
Magnus described his experience as ‘fun and exciting’ whilst Mr Soutar, who was able to regain his position as Headmaster at the end of the day said ‘rather worryingly, Mr Tibbalds did a great job and I will be looking over my shoulder for his approval in the future.’
