Wishing all of our Old Girls around the world a very happy St Kate's Day on 26th November. Our celebrations are inevitably a little different this year but we are keeping with tradition as best we can. Yet this year more than most we are inspired by the sense of community and togetherness our Old Girls' affinity to the School and their interest in the well-being of today's students creates.
We hope that wherever you are spending St Kate's Day, you will enjoy following the merry chaos of the day's proceedings via our social media channels and through the content posted below. Sadly, we are unable post out Kit Kats this year and we know you can’t gather with friends but would love, as usual, to know that you are enjoying your own sweet treats and a cuppa solo, while enjoying our live streaming and recorded events.
Happy St Kate's Day 2020!
There is a sense of celebration and enjoyment at the school on St Kate's Day, yet the task of raising funds for the school's charity of the year is taken seriously. This year we are supporting the wonderful CLIC Sargent, who work to help stop cancer destroying young people's lives.
In the run up to St Kate's Day, our fundraising activities have already raised over £5,000.
All members of the school community past and present are invited to make a donation to mark our St Kate's day celebrations. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated by everyone at the school.
We are pleased to share a recording of the St Kate's Day service. We hope you enjoying viewing it and being part of the day's celebrations.
While we can't sing this in the usual way on St Kate's Day, we hope you will enjoy this recording and sing by yourself in your own lockdown setting!
Thanks to the vision of Old Girl Bethan Kelly, our music department and Chapel Choir took on a collaboration with other Old Girls across the country in the summer. The result was this wonderful remote performance of the School hymn. Each voice was recorded separately.
We know many of you will know the hymn off by heart, but you can click here if you would like to view the video and the words.
