Members of the Charities Commission have been selling red-nosed themed merchandise in the run up to Comic Relief and today organised break and lunchtime events in the Crush Hall. Pupils were able to buy red noses, wrist bands and attempt to ‘pin the nose’ on Ed Sheeran! Well done to everyone involved in raising money for this very worthwhile cause.
Scamp Club's literary quest this year took them to Lovaton on Dartmoor. 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' and Malcolm Saville’s classic, 'Saucers over the Moor' served as 'maps' which led them to their three key locations: Nun’s Cross Farm, the home of the villain of the piece, Grimspound where Sherlock Holmes made his base and Whiteworks where the source of the saucers over the moor was rumoured to be.
Congratulations to Ellie Macleod who played two of her
A Level piano pieces at The Southampton Music Festival on 12th March winning The Janet Sherbourne Cup (U18 piano) for her performance
of Joachim Raff's ‘Romance'. She received very positive feedback from the adjudicator for both
pieces she played.
On Wednesday 22nd March, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures Company came to School to deliver an exciting and dynamic workshop based on their brand new, critically acclaimed ballet ‘The Red Shoes’. A number of Lower School dancers took part with the opportunity to learn some repertoire from the show and work on some themes of storytelling through tableaux and movement. The dancers were given a fantastic insight into Matthew Bourne’s choreographic style and in the evening, dancers from across all years were lucky enough to visit The Mayflower Theatre to see the company in action performing ‘The Red Shoes’.
