Carol Service 2019
Joined by friends and family, boys in Years 5–8 were poised and professional as they celebrated the Christmas Message at St Mary’s Church.
Readings from Zac Uhrmacher, Soloman Chohan, Chester Green, William Harper, Paul Arbibe, Scott Gilchrist, Robbie Jones, Nathan Baggett, Matthew Costa-D’Sa and Head Boy, Crosby Burnett were well rehearsed and set the festive tone. An atmospheric performance of ‘Jesus Christ the Apple Tree’ by Chamber Choir and the Friends of Davenies Choir followed ‘Torches’ by the Staff Choir, conducted by Head of Music, Mrs Watson and the Senior Handbells gave a wonderful and polished recital of ‘Hallelujah’ by Georg Friederich Händel, directed by Mrs Rusmanis. This year’s Carol Service was a real celebration of the true meaning of Christmas and brought the Autumn Term to a joyful close.
The retiring collection was in aid of William’s Fund, a local charity raising money for Childhood Cancer Research.
Thank you to all who supported the boys and staff at such a wonderful occasion.
