With Covid restrictions, the annual Carol Service took place over zoom today. The various musicians, singers and readers were recorded last week. One advantage was that parents and families could join in using the zoom link as the students watched from their classrooms.
The service was led by school Chaplain, Mr Hawkins who had recorded his Christmas message from the fireside in their house (the school gate lodge). He talked about waiting for oil during the snowy weather last February with the only heat being from the open fire. In the same way, Advent is all about waiting for the birth of Christ the Saviour. It was a lovely service, very moving and meaningful.
Thank you to all of the students who were involved in the Carol Service. The music (singers and musicians) and readings really added to the atmosphere.
