11th December 2020 — The Christmas season at Loughborough Schools Foundation is usually one where parents and pupils enjoy many concerts and carol services. It soon became clear however that this would not be possible in 2020 and so Elizabeth York, School Chaplain, and colleagues from the Music department, devised a digital Advent calendar so that the Schools’ community could still enjoy a collection of performances from pupils across the Foundation.
The calendar is a wonderful collection of 15 musical items and 10 readings performed by more than 700 children, from 18 months to 18 years, from all four Schools of Loughborough Schools Foundation (Loughborough Grammar School, Loughborough High School, Loughborough Amherst School, Fairfield Prep School) and the Nursery. Everyone who took part in the project thoroughly enjoyed the experience and felt festive after the recording of their piece.
The digital calendar is planned with a new window going live every day from 1 to 25 December.
