When I heard the sound of an impromptu rehearsal coming from the dining room, I rushed down to the art room to fetch daughter Lucy. She arrived yesterday, and was already engaged in making and painting a door for the production. The sound was, as ever, breathtaking, but we were both astonished to discover that it was coming from just nine girls singing (plus one drumming).
Later that same evening, we were taking advantage of a school trip to the First Thursday art event in Rosebank, and while waiting for the bus, we were treated to the most enjoyable spectacle of some spontaneous fun and games in the school quad. Do not let it be said that the only way young people can have fun nowadays is to look at a screen; but that is the way that you can enjoy, vicariously, their joie de vivre.
