By Alice Rouget

(As seen in Pegasus Pages, December 2013)

The world of French music has long been dominated by dramatic figures such as Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Brel, and Edith Piaf, amongst others. France has never really been considered a great exporter of music “for the youth”; however, this has all changed in the last decade or so with the emergence of new groups and successful comebacks.

After the announcement of an air date for American Sherlock viewers, in a typically Sherlockian style (a hurst with ‘Sherlock’ spelt out in roses roaming around the streets of London), the return of the consulting detective and his doctor has been at the forefront of many minds. As an obsessively dedicated fan, I celebrated the news by taking a short train journey to London for a Sherlock centric day.

Tell Your Story with the ‘Our Stories’ Project

 ‘If you want to appreciate the beauty of a CLC daisy, you’ve got to examine its roots.’ Freya Granger tells us about the new project with which you can get involved to celebrate the cultural diversity represented at CLC.

If ever asked to describe the CLC community in one, all-encompassing word, I don’t think I would hesitate. ‘Eclectic’ would be my reply, and for good reason. The school term here at CLC represents a union of different cultures and backgrounds from around the world. In a school with so rich a mix of nationalities, have you ever been curious about where your hockey teammate, chem partner, or housemistress comes from? In the chaos and activity that is CLC life, we often forget to appreciate these details – the details that the Our Stories Project aims to bring to light.

September sees the mass migration of CLC girls from all over the world back to Cheltenham for the start of the autumn term. Silent for two months, the bustle of school life is in full swing once more, and everyone is glad to be back, whether it is their last year in SFC2 or their first in LC1.

In the 1990s, over 55 million children were born in India. If those 55 million children survived, today it is likely that over 50% of them would be living in poverty. Everyday it amazes me that there was a one in two chance that I could be on a very different side of that statistic and although I haven’t lived in India for many years, it was one of the reasons for why I was very keen to revisit my birthplace and to try to make some kind of a positive impact.
