After the music department decided that the production of “The Sound of Music” is too large for one school alone, it was decided to involve other schools in the area as well.
They have many very talented musicians who are eager to take part in this fantastic project.
More schools taking part
These boys are already practicing the music which will accompany the new musical. As you can see it’s not the usual guitars, bass and drums band we are looking for, but rather a fine orchestra.
Here you can take a look at the brass and woodwind sections. There are trombones, trumpets, clarinets and English horn players which will provide a rich sound.
Very suitable for a production which after all is about The Sound of Music
Trombone and English horn

The music department is planning a musical production of “The Sound Of Music”
They got hold of this record and were delighted.
A lot of preparations will be necessary. The sheets must be obtained, the crew has to be casted, the band has to begin to rehearse.
Oh, so many different things wait for the girls and boys. What about the costumes, what about the stage? Everybody is exited.
All kinds of groups will be needed to make this production a success …
Generations of schoolboys grew up wearing shorts as part of their official school uniform.
Many schools, especially grammar or preparatory schools, required shorts from reception through to a certain age or grade, usually til the age of puberty.
So it was not unusual to see boys up to the age of thirteen, fourteen clothed in school uniform shorts – even in winter.
The shorts often were tailored from worsted, flannel or corduroy and had a grey, blue or beige colour.
The length was somehow following fashion and went up during the 1960s only to come down again in the 1980s. Today many shorts again come nearly down to the knee – bermuda length.
Our students like to share their favourite books and point out what is worth reading.
The new addition to the school library is a favourite of one of the girls. She likes girl school stories.
