The College Chapel is an imposing stone monolith situated at the centre of the campus. It is one of the focal points of college life, as are the Dining Hall and Social Club. Students begin their school day at a 20-minute service. This adds up to about two-and-a-half hours spent in the chapel each week. The typical service starts with the college prefects strutting down the checkered aisle to the melodic, or sometimes eerie, sound of the organ. The rest of the time is spent singing hymns, listening to sermons and praying a perfect chance to doze off. However, the monotony of chapel is occasionally broken by special days, such as Peace One Day. This is when a slideshow of images of war and peace is shown, alongside a soundtrack of atmospheric pop songs, such as Hallelujah. On some other days the sermon is replaced by an obscure piece of organ music. The last piece was rather badly received. It sounded as if it was inspired by a horror film and played by someone tone-deaf randomly pounding a badly-tuned keyboard. Although the chapel seems like the most straight-laced institution in our orthodox public school, it is often used as a platform for protest. Students show their unhappiness by refusing to sing. In my time here, there have been two 'rebellions'. The first was against the introduction of a new roll call on Saturday evening, and involved the whole college. In the second, my house protested against our new housemaster. As our former housemaster would say: 'A house not singing in chapel is the worst thing that could happen to a housemaster'. Chapel is sometimes a humdrum, and sometimes a revealing, part of college life.
