The Year 7 Choir was driven to Glenalmond to take part in the annual Prep Schools’ Choral day. There was lots to do as well as practise for the evening service. We had a fascinating session on “Flight” given by Mr Jeffers, who showed us how to make paper planes that could fly over the huge building into the next Quad! We watched the Pipe Band perform and march round the Quad.
The concert went well and we sang Parry’s “I Was Glad”, “I will lift up MIne Eyes,””For the Fallen”and some well-known hymns. Magnus Hextall read excellently from “The BFG” by Roald Dahl.
We had supper out in Perth and stayed overnight at the college. During the weekend, we enjoyed meeting Old Mowdenians, and Old Sauveterrian and a former Mowden Director of Music, Mr Henry Wallace.
