What sort of activities and events do girls experience as part of Pitlochry?
The first major event of the year is Fun Song: all the girls in the House devise and practise a lively song-and-dance routine to be performed as part of an inter-House contest at the end of the first half term of the year. Everyone participates enthusiastically, and rivalry between the Houses is fierce. Soft Song in the Lent term is a similar event, although the emphasis here is more focussed on the music and dance is kept to a minimum. The House celebrates its birthday in January, commemorating the time when the School moved to Pitlochry during the Great War, and in Easter 2015 we are intending to return for a short visit. We also have a formal House Dinner, based on a theme chosen by the Prefects: last year the theme was Harry Potter, and we were entertained during dinner by a magician. In addition, there are also various sporting competitions throughout the year, culminating in Sports Day, which is always keenly supported.
