Year 7 Christmas Carol Concert
During the last week of term, Year 7 students were invited to a Christmas carol concert in the main hall.
The concert began with students singing Away in a Manger and was followed by a number of other carols. Year 7 students read a reading about St Nicholas and performed Hearts of Gold. Rev Luke Dean led an activity looking at the message of the Christmas cracker – starting with the fact that many see Christmas as a joke and do not know the importance it has, he used the paper hat to remind the boys that Jesus is the King of Kings.
The concert ended with Merry Christmas Everyone which was sung with rousing enthusiasm by everyone attending - especially the students!
This is a traditional Year 7 event to mark the coming end of Advent.
