A Great End to the Term
It is hard to believe that it is already the end of term! There have been so many wonderful moments of learning, many personal and team sporting successes, musical highlights, cross-age experiences, great leadership and so much personal growth in the girls. It has been particularly encouraging to see so many of the girls working towards the development of the Qualities of a Lowther Hall Girl, and especially the development of confidence and independence in so many of the Junior School girls.
Update from the Choir Tour
Here on the other side of the world, the Choir Tour continues to be a great success. The girls’ performances at Carnegie Hall on Saturday night were stunning and the whole experience was one I am sure they will remember forever. On Sunday they sang at St Thomas’ Church on Fifth Avenue and then on Wednesday they gave a spontaneous performance of I Still Call Australia Home in Central Park. They were also unexpectedly invited to join the gospel choir at the service they attended in Harlem, to sing Oh Happy Day! We are now in Canada where the girls will spend tomorrow at our sister school, St Clements, singing and participating in music workshops. We will be back next week after their final performance at Disneyland! The girls have been wonderful and have fully embraced every opportunity they have been given.
A reminder that at the start of Term 2, girls have 2 weeks when they can select which uniform (summer or winter) they wish to wear, depending on the weather. Please ensure that both uniforms are in good condition and that they fit appropriately. We would anticipate that by 1 May all girls will have transitioned to the Winter uniform, unless otherwise advised.
Today both the Senior School and Junior School girls participated in an Easter Service. As an Anglican School, Easter is a significant event for us to celebrate, however we understand that not all members of our School Community are Anglicans. Our inclusive services invite both staff and students to connect with the messages of Easter in ways that are meaningful to them.
I wish each of our families a safe holiday period and an Easter period informed by the joy, hope and optimism of the resurrection. I look forward to seeing everyone re-energised at the start of Term 2.
