Upper Sixth attend Service of Commemoration at Westminster Abbey

Commem 2022 237 1

On Saturday 5 November, the Upper Sixth travelled to London for our annual service commemorating our Founder, Elizabeth Godolphin, in the Henry VII Lady Chapel at Westminster Abbey. While the Art Historians had a whistle-stop tour of the National Gallery, the Upper Sixth explored autumnal London.

'It was a lovely occasion for our Upper Sixth, with readings from both students and staff. A moving rendition of the Gaelic Blessing, sung and conducted by our Upper Sixth choir. After a poignant service, where the Rev inspired us to be the fireworks set by Elizabeth Godolphin's fuse, we proceeded to the Cloisters, where we laid a wreath at the memorial of our Founder.

The Canon's welcome reaffirmed that "the Abbey is a place for memories" - and our Upper Sixth will treasure this memory for years to come'.
