Live Music Now

November 9th, 2012

The second Live Music Now concert took place on Monday 5th November, here at St Vincent’s. This time we were allowed to listen to the wonderful Viento duo. A duo made up of Su, a Clarinet player and Steph, a Flute player. The players displayed an expertise on their instruments playing a selection of Music which included; The Harry Potter theme, Pirates of the Caribbean, Sailors Hornpipe and the Theme from Jaws.

As the Music suggests, the ladies used a sea theme for their concert bringing props and sound effects in to add to the ambience. Some pupils were used to dress up as pirates, swans and Mr Paul Roberts was asked to add the horn, (in the correct place!), during the Sailors hornpipe.

All pupils were given percussion instruments throughout the concert to add their own parts during a number of pieces.

One pupil commented “I loved that Su and Steph wandered around during the concert, really letting us hear their individual instrument and we got to dress up”

Another commented “Su was quite scary when she wore the headband with a sharks fin on it and playing the jaws theme”

Our thanks go to the Live Music Now group for organising another successful concert.

Principal’s Message

October 29th, 2012

Dear Parents / Guardians

I am writing to inform you that I will be retiring as Principal of St Vincent’s School at the end of March 2013.  I informed the pupils of this at the end of Assembly this morning, having notified the governors in late September.

The Governors and Trustees remain most committed to the school and are actively in the process of appointing my successor.  I will keep you informed of developments but an advertisement will be placed in the national press before the end of November with a view to interviewing in early December.

In the meantime things at St Vincent’s will continue, as they always have as we prepare for the feast of Christmas.

Yours truly,

Mr S Roberts

Principal
