Stoneygate Carol Service

Well done to everyone in years 3 to 8 for doing so fantastically well in the Carol Service. Everyone worked so hard to learn all the music and performed at such a high standard. I was so proud of the energy, smiles, clarity, shaping, tuning, diction, clicks, orchestras, ensembles, descants … the list goes on and on!

The readings and the school captains’ welcome were also so well delivered and showed an understanding that went beyond the years of the readers.

Special thanks go to the staff of the school, who showed their full support throughout. In particular, Mr Murphy for preparing the readers, Mr Stocks for coordinating the event, Mr Hudson, Mr James, Mr Britcliffe, Miss Hardy and Mrs Thompson for their valued musical contribution to the service, and Mr Ashwin for his piano accompaniment and energy.

A huge thank you to everyone who made it possible and for all the support of the wonderful congregation.

Have a lovely Christmas!

Mrs Ashwin

Stoneygate Rugby Colts C Vs Fairfield Year 5 (B) – Wednesday 20th November

This was the second match of the term for Colts C. In the first half the team struggled to find any rhythm against a strong Fairfield team.

In the second half the team showed signs of improvement as they began to move the ball quickly through the backline. Standout performances from Karan, Alfie, Siddharth, Matthew and Alex should not go without mention in this tough fixture.

Although the game ended in defeat the entire team showed great character and determination once again.
