On 15th-18th March 2017 a group of 32 students made a cultural visit to Paris. We visited the Musée d’Orsay which houses a wealth of artistic treasures while also being of architectural interest. We viewed the spectacular cathedral of Notre Dame, from a bateau mouche and up close, and climbed the Eiffel Tower. The next day we relaxed at the Disneyland Paris resort.

Charles Cox made the following comments about the trip:

It was one of the most enjoyable experiences that I’ve had during my time at LCHS. I really enjoyed sightseeing in Paris and visiting famous historical sights and museums. I made plenty of new friends and enjoyed visiting Disneyland with them. The highlight of my trip was either shopping down the Champs Elysées or meeting the iconic Mickey Mouse!

The 2016 LCHS annual China exchange trip took place from 18th to 29th October. Six Year 11 and 10 students and two staff took part in the trip. The LCHS students stayed with the Chinese students of our Chinese Link school - Tangshan Foreign Language School - for a week. They learned Chinese fan dancing, martial arts, paper cutting and shadow puppet making. They visited the Tangshan International Horticultural Expositionand had a day trip to the Great Wall. They stayed in Beijing for two days, visiting Tian’anmen Square, the Summer Palace and Beijing Zoo.

They had a wonderful time in China:

Jorge:“Once in a life time experience, loved every minute.”                            

Nick:“Easily the best school trip by miles! Definitely recommend it!”                                          

Jo : “I had a lot of fun and would definitely go again… considering going back to Tangshan for a gap year!   

 

A news report on the China 2016 trip has been released on the Chinese official website.

From the 14th-19th October, thirty-nine students and four staff took part in the annual Spanish Department trip. This year, we visited the picturesque region of Andalucía and stayed in a hotel by the beach in Torremolinos. Excursions included a trip to Malaga, the beautiful Mezquita in Córdoba and a visit around a bull ring in Ronda. Students were able to sample the regional food, use their language skills and enjoy the hot weather. Once again, the annual fancy dress competition was a success with a vast assortment of outfits ranging from flamenco dancers and bullfighters to Mario and Luigi!

The death of the celebrated musician Sir Neville Marriner has recently been announced.

 

Neville Marriner was a pupil at Lincoln School from 1934 to 1940, and was a contemporary of Charles Garton. He was born in Lincoln in 1924, and after leaving school he attended the Royal College of Music in London, and also studied at the Paris Conservatoire. His main instrument was the violin, and in the early stages of his career he played with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra. During that period he played under such conducting legends as Toscanini, Furtwangler and Karajan. He later went on to conduct most of the world’s great orchestras, and founded the internationally renowned Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields, the most comprehensively recorded chamber orchestra in the world.

His potential as a violinist was recognised in the July 1938 edition of The Lincolnian, the School magazine. The School Notes recorded that ‘N Marriner continues to do well as a violinist; he was second with 87 marks in the open violin class at the recent Skegness Music Festival’. The July 1941 edition celebrated his being awarded the Morley Scholarship at the Royal College of Music for the second successive year.

However, Sir Neville was not the best behaved of pupils and his name appeared in the Prefects’ Detention Book on a number of occasions for such heinous crimes as persistent cheek and fooling about in the library! His sense of mischief was also recorded in an interview in The Times. During the 1950s, when he was a young musician, Sir Neville recalled that he larked about with the best of them, and bombed the London Symphony Orchestra bus with a load of flour bags dropped from a friend’s Tiger Moth plane on the road from Brussels to Ostend!

However, it is for Sir Neville’s outstanding contribution to the world of Classical music that he will be remembered, and you may read more about Sir Neville’s distinguished career in the following link to an article in the Garton Archive at LCHS, including visits in the 1980s, when he conducted the school orchestra.
