Virtual Societies Fair

Adapting to the new ways of working this term has enabled us to think creatively about how we help the girls get the most out of their activities. We were delighted to launch our first Virtual Societies Fair during the first weekend of term.

From apiary to Zumba, a wide range of co-curricular activities were showcased during our Societies’ Fair. The virtual fair received over 6000 online visits over the weekend as the girls explored the many opportunities on offer.

The heads of each society were asked to produce a video to share their passions and interests with potential new members. Amongst more than four hours of content were enticements to join clubs such as Rock Band Society, the Classics Reading Society and the Greenpower Car Society, which builds and races electric cars.

Prizes were awarded to the societies which produced the videos with the most hits. The hugely successful Science Society created the third most-watched video, the new Embroidery Society was second, while the most popular video was produced by the Debating and Public Speaking Society.
