On Saturday 16th March, 20 St Swithun’s girls were confirmed by the Bishop of Basingstoke, the Right Reverend Peter Hancock at a service at Winchester cathedral. It was a wonderful occasion attended by friends and family of the candidates and Swithun Choir sang for the service. The bishop and his wife joined us at school for a special celebration lunch afterwards.
The girls had attended weekly classes and an overnight confirmation retreat at Eton Dorney to prepare for this special occasion. Three other girls who have been prepared at school will be confirmed at the cathedral’s Easter Eve service.
