Gaudy Finale – ending the year on a high

The end of the year at Teddies is an occasion like few others; the Gaudy Week festival is a behemoth celebration of all aspects of school life. As the inspirational lead behind the whole operation, Director of Music and the Arts, Alex Tester, put it: over the course of 9 days, the school has had 76 rehearsals, 37 academic events, workshops and trips, 20 major cultural events and 20 major sporting fixtures or events. Simply said, this is some considerable undertaking for the whole school, but what a result!

From the first bar of the rousing Warden’s Special Opera Recital on Friday to the last perfectly pitched note reverberating around the glorious acoustics and surrounds of The Sheldonian Theatre the following Thursday, Gaudy Week was a triumph of the academic, dramatic, artistic and the sporting. Congratulations to one and all on sending the School off into the summer on such a resoundingly successful footing.

Do look out for a full report on Gaudy Week in the upcoming Chronicle and for the Gaudy film, produced by Celia Hodgson OSE, in the next E News.
