11 July 2014: Stirling’s Makar, Anita Govan, Coaches Pupils Through ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ Flighting Event

Anita Govan, Stirling’s makar, spent four weeks in May and June working with Mrs Taylor’s FI English class on creative writing and drama.  The result of all this coaching time was a spectacular ‘flighting’ display: a kind of choreographed battle of words and wits and dramatic energy, all inspired by William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Eve’. 


11 July 2014: Prep School Sports Day
If one is going to balance an egg on a spoon, run a three-legged race, hop to the finish in a brightly coloured potato sack or merely run across a stretch of green grass at full tilt, it is rather nice to do it on a day of blue skies, breezes and sunshine.
