THE NEW BEACON, SEVENOAKS
Tremendous academic scholarship news this week: A King’s Scholarship to Eton and four out of four Academic Scholarships to Tonbridge, including a Knightley Award for Modern Foreign Languages. Very well done to all our successful scholars, pictured.
If you are free on Saturday 25th May, the first Saturday of half term, do go along to this fantastic family concert at St Martin-in-the-Fields at Charing Cross. The flute soloist is none other than our esteemed flute and piano teacher, Mr Watts!
On Thursday 18th April the Middle School Chapel Choir joined forces with Hollingbourne Primary School Choir for a workshop and concert. Meeting at 1.30pm, they had just 2 hours to learn 4 pieces of music and perform them in chapel in front of family and friends. This they did extremely well, having worked hard throughout the workshop. The afternoon finished with tea for all! A great afternoon of music making!
The programme was –
Laudate Dominum – Taize Chant
Standing in the Need of Prayer – Trad Spiritual
The Lord is My Shepherd (Theme from The Vicar of Dibley) – Howard Goodall
Jerusalem - Parry
We were privileged to welcome the Bishop of Rochester on Friday 16th November.
Bishop James attended two services with the younger boys and answered questions about his ‘job’! At 5pm he attended the Senior School service, blessing the restored altar frontal and new organ.
The main purpose of his visit was to celebrate the centenary of St George’s Chapel and he spoke powerfully of the bricks, beams and mortar of the building which had seen so many boys pass through; boys who had the power to change the world for the better.
