Adeste Fideles - a lesson in Latin

Dec. 13, 2016 | Student St-Amant received a lesson in Latin pronunciation this morning.

Called upon by Master Maxwell, Mr. St-Amant (dressed in his best school boy blazer) slowly, yet triumphantly, worked his way through the verses of "Adeste Fideles". The BCS community will sing "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" in its original Latin during Friday's Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, so Mr. Maxwell and Mr. St-Amant took everyone through the words at assembly this morning. We're not too sure Luciano Pavarotti would have agreed with Mr. St-Amant's declaration that he "nailed it", but we commend him for his effort!

Don't miss this year's Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at 4 PM this Friday, December 16.
