Huge thanks to all for a superb Carol Service. It was a big team effort and so many people worked incredibly hard to pull it all together.
The different elements all had a special role to play. The Year 8 readers read with poise, confidence and beautiful clarity. It was lovely to introduce our Junior Orchestra alongside the Senior Orchestra, who played delightfully. The samba kit had its first performance with a great team of Year 7 players. The drumline was a key feature of the Carol Service this year and they played with such style. The Junior Choir sang ever so well and remembered their moves and words. The Senior Choir made a superb sound and performed at their best. The school singing as a whole was something really special. This massed sound, where everyone contributes is so important and should reflect how we feel about our school community and the wider community: individual effort improving the result and outcome for everyone. I should also mention the contribution of the congregation in their singing of the carols. Thank you so much for singing with the children. It is important for them to know that music is something for everyone at every point in their lives. Mrs Ashwin
