11 May 2011 / HIGH SCHOOL'S HONG KONG TOUR A RESOUNDING SUCCESS

Forty pupils from the top-performing Truro girls' school, aged between 10 and 18, went on the nine-day tour. Their packed performance schedule included two concerts at the Avenue of the Stars, Hong Kong's version of the Hollywood original; two concerts at St John's Cathedral; one in the lobby of the Grand Stanford Hotel and one at St Paul's College boy's school, the oldest secondary school in Hong Kong.

"It was a highly successful and exciting tour," said Truro High School's Director of Music, Frances Eagar. "It was the most amazing trip yet. The girls excelled themselves and not only sang beautifully but were also great company."

Ms Eagar said one of the many high spots was the performance at St Paul's College Boys' School, where the girls joined the boys' school choir for a combined concert that included a traditional Chinese folk song.

Raymond Fu, Director of Music at St Paul's, said: "The girls are wonderful, just so musical and gifted."

Staff and parents accompanying the trip ensured the girls took advantage of the educational opportunity of experiencing another culture by shopping at Stanley Market, taking a trip on a traditional Chinese junk, visiting top tourist attraction, The Peak and travelling to Macau to see ‘House of the Dancing Water,' a multi-million dollar water-based show.

"This was an experience of a life time," said Head of Choir Nancy May. "The day at St Paul's School was my highlight."

Another student, Lydia Mee, said: "I will never forget our nine days in Hong Kong for as long as I live. I'm speechless! No words can describe what I gained from this tour."

High School Headmistress, Caroline Pascoe, who accompanied the choir, said: "This truly was an amazing and mind expanding trip on a number of levels. Travel is so educational and the girls have gained so much from both their recreational and musical experiences - they have grown as people. They also performed to an extraordinarily high level and were complimented everywhere they sang. I'm very proud of them."
