Year 7s Perform For Old Girls
Tuesday, 11 November 2014
For Armistice Day 2014, the Old Girls’ Association invited former pupils to return to School for a Service of Remembrance, followed by the Old Girls’ Lunch. The Old Girls who attended joined current pupils, staff, and currently serving members of the armed forces in the Great Hall for a moving commemoration of those who died in the First and Second World Wars, and in every conflict since then. A number of alumni who remember the Second World War first-hand were in attendance, and this made for a particularly moving event.
After the Service of Remembrance, the Old Girls proceeded to the Arts Centre for lunch. They were joined for lunch by the School’s military guests: Lieutenant Colonel Miles Hayman AGC (ETS), Major Daniella Aspin, Captain Affan Burki, and Second Lieutenant Nikki Reid who is also a former Bolton School pupil.
At the end of the lunch, the Year 7 girls filed into the Arts Centre to provide entertainment. The whole year group sang an impressive medley of hits from Frozen with a great deal of enthusiasm. Their performance also included a number of delightful solos during ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’ The music had the Old Girls tapping their feet and put a smile on every face, with many alumni commenting on how well the girls had performed and how much they had enjoyed the singing.
The Old Girls were then invited to join the Year 7s in singing a stirring rendition of the School Song. Within moments, the alumni were on their feet and joining in from memory. This made for a very fitting and enjoyable end to the Old Girls’ Lunch.
