Thanksgiving Dinner

Published by Stowe School on Tuesday 29th of November 2022

Thursday 24 November marked the celebration of Thanksgiving in America. The International Society held a dinner to allow all Stoics from North America to spend time together in a style similar to how they would when with family.

For the first time ever, we also invited pupils from Winchester House to join the celebration. Luke Evans (Upper Sixth, Cobham), an International Prefect, did a fantastic job of welcoming these younger pupils and making them feel at home.

The Catering Department laid on a fantastic meal, made up of turkey and all the trimmings, with an excellent apple pie to finish. Matthew Thomas, the Harvard Graduate, gave a heartfelt speech, reminiscing about Thanksgivings he has spent with family, and being thankful for having a second family here at Stowe. This was followed by a speech from Isabella Ellott (Upper Sixth, Stanhope), an International Prefect, who reflected upon how gratitude and thanks can allow us to live a more positive life. The evenings entertainment was provided by Nikita Nedoshovenko (Upper Sixth, Walpole), the final International Prefect, who had put together a quiz about the history of Thanksgiving, which brought out the competitiveness between all attendees.

The night was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended, with a request from the pupils from Winchester House that they can return next year!
