a royal performance

 Less than a mile from the
  Balmoral estate, Crathie
  Kirk has been a place of
  worship for the royal
  family for over 150 years
  and, in September, a
  chamber choir made up of
  current St Leonards pupils
  and Seniors were invited
  to sing for Her Majesty the Queen.

  As well as leading the congregation in traditional hymns, the choral group sang the national anthem, with Queen Elizabeth, Viscount Linley and family in attendance at the morning service.  The choir was conducted and accompanied by our Director of Music, Fiona Love, and former Director of Music, Dr Glynn Jenkins, without whom such a prestigious occasion would not have been possible.  

 

The Life and Times of Abbey ParK
 

On Tuesday, 22 October former Deputy Headmistress and Housemistress, Jane Claydon, in association with the St Andrews Preservation Trust, presented her research on  the former St Leonards boarding house, Abbey Park. 

As well as outlining the history of one of St Leonards' oldest and largest boarding houses, Jane highlighted those who lived in the building before it was bought by the school, and mentioned some of the more distinguished Seniors who resided there. The turnout was fantastic, with members of the Preservation Trust as well as current and former pupils and staff filling the Music School Auditorium.

A big thank you to the Preservation Trust and to Jane, both of whom have dedicated so much time and energy to preserving and sharing the history of St Leonards. 

 

 

farewell: Alison Galloway

St Leonards has said a fond farewell to Alumni and Development Manager Alison Galloway,  who has taken up an exciting new role with an international equine welfare charity, acting as the executive fundraiser in Scotland. 

Alison has a long association with St Leonards; boarding in St Nicks in the late 1970s and, more recently, her own daughters, Sophie and Lucie, attended the school, spending 12 years at St Leonards between them.

Having worked at St Leonards since 2012, Alison said: 'It has been an amazing experience to work for such a fantastic school, and I will miss everybody, especially all of the wonderful Seniors. I'm delighted to have such wonderful memories of some brilliant events and fun times! Thank you to St Leonards Seniors for your support over the years.'
