At the end of January 2016, Mr Lance Veenstra was inducted as the 7th Headmaster of Cordwalles Preparatory School by Bishop Dino. Bishop Dino in his sermon prayed for wisdom and guidance for Mr Veenstra and support from the boys, staff and parents. He reminded Mr Veenstra of his role, not only as a Headmaster, but also the importance of his role as a father and as a husband. It was a moving and poignant ceremony. Many happy tears were shed during this milestone event!
