Charity Concert

 MG 0015

The concert band and the staff collaborated to raise funds for charity in a fun and memorable way!

The cheerleader of the event was Miss Emslie of the music department. Her energy and enthusiasm persuaded staff to create scenes and dance moves from famous movies, whilst the concert band impressed everyone with their pitch perfect renditions.

Each faculty was given a movie theme and everyone entered into the fun with gusto. The girls in the audience were treated to the music and scenes from James Bond, Mamma Mia, and Harry Potter just to name a few. Witnessing Mr Ashmore, Head of the Science Faculty dressed in full naval uniform as Captain Von Trapp from the Sound of Music was an undoubted highlight ; the science teachers sported outfits and headbands made from curtains, fashioned by wardrobe mistress par excellence Ms Nicolson the chemistry teacher.  Their perfect choreography could have graced any Sound of Music touring production!

Special mention must also go to Mrs Hall of English, dressed as a mermaid and Mrs O'Fee from Support for Learning in her full wet suit, snorkel and flippers, for the Mamma Mia beach scene.

The event was combined with an own clothes day for students and coincided with the start of study leave for our hard working sixth formers.

The money raised will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust charity voted for by the girls at the start of the session.  

  • "It was really funny," said Emily of L5X.
  • "It was very funny. I really liked the history sketch based on James Bond," said Tilly of L5R.
  • "My favourite was the sports department playing quidditch to the Harry Potter theme tune, " said Aisha of L5Q.

Miss Emslie is retiring from the Music department at the end of the session and she received the loudest cheer from the girls. Her musical expertise, extrovert personality and boundless energy will be dearly missed by all at St George's. But it's too soon to be sad - there are lots more music events involving Miss Emslie before the end of term. Play on!
