Carol Service 2020
With a beautiful backdrop, and within year group bubbles, Years 5–8 celebrated the Christmas Message through song and scripture at St Mary and All Saints Church for our 2020 Carol Service.
Although unusual in its format, the Carol Service went ahead in St Mary’s as usual for our Middle and Senior School celebration. The Year 7 Brass Ensemble opened proceedings with a rendition of God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, whilst readings from Jeevan Bharj, Tom Cornelius, Thomas Easterbrook, Joseph Gluyas adn Aarav Ramrakha, Charles Ham, Caspar Claridge and Oliver Jones, Jenry Atkinson, Max Bal and Harrison Denee, and Head Boy, Sam Dhir set the festive tone. A well-rehearsed and moving duet from brothers, Ralph and Hugh Suggett of All Bells In Paradise was a joyous delight and the Staff Choir, conducted by Head of Music, Mrs Watson, gave a rousing performance of Ding Dong Merrily on High. Reverend Dr Jeremy Brooks, Rector at St Mary’s, was also on hand to address the congregation, and remind us why we celebrate Christmas.
Whilst parents and family members were unable to support the boys from the pews, we do hope they enjoyed the opportunity to watch our Carol Service via video.
