CLSG to C.B.
Back to (virtual) school!
Yes, the biggest news of the week won't be news to you: online learning is back like it never left! As we open our laptops once more, it can be easy to have a sense of déjà vu. But for our year 7 pupils, this is their first 'virtual' term at City. We caught up with a few of them to see how they're finding it.

O Zoom, All Ye Faithful: CLSG Carols go virtual
A highlight of the festive season, if not the calendar year, is the annual carol service, when we welcome members from all the City community, including many alumnae to St Giles. This could not, of course, go ahead as normal this year, but undaunted, the music department recorded a series of readings, carols and ensemble pieces over a few evenings. It is beautiful and evocative. Watch the carols in full here, or the highlights here.
