Following advance showings for pupils at the end of last term, we are delighted to announce that Foundation Day will premiere at 19:00 this Saturday, 16 January.
Produced over the course of the Autumn Term by our pupil-led Video Production and Broadcasting team, the video features all of the traditional elements of the ceremony, including reports from Mrs Sanchez and Mr Lipton, and an address by Guest of Honour Usha Raman, the Headmistress of Sri Jayendra, our partner school in Tamil Nadu.
Also included are speeches by Senior Monitors Jessie (Upper Sixth, Priestley), Hessam (Upper Sixth, Collinson) and Oliver (Upper Sixth, Priestley), musical performances from Nasan (Upper Sixth, Priestley) and the Lower Sixth String Ensemble, an introductory prayer from the Chaplain and a look back at the year in review, all delivered from different locations around the school.
The Prizegiving ceremony itself takes place on Top Terrace, an example of the the many ways long-standing traditions have been adapted for a year like no other.
Director Omre, (Upper Sixth, McClure), said, “Saturday’s premiere marks the conclusion of over six months of work to make this project a reality. We spent weeks planning, filming and editing what we hope is the best possible replacement for the real thing – though we very much look forward to the whole community joining us to celebrate in person later in the year.”
