What a busy term our students have had! Since half term, our regular rehearsals for singing club have continued in earnest in preparation for the Christmas Carol Service next week. The band for our musical ‘Annie’ started rehearsals and are already sounding very good. We have quite a few of our younger students joining us this year and they have done brilliantly, learning lots of very challenging new music. The string and keyboard lunchtime clubs are also getting very popular and students are continuing to develop their skills.
In November, we had our first Music Night in the main hall with many students from across the school taking part. We saw some amazing solos, duets and bands perform to a full hall and students came away feeling proud with their achievements and thoroughly enjoying themselves. Just last week a number of students performed in our School Awards Evening and about 80 students took part throughout the day when we spent the whole of Thursday fundraising at Sainsbury’s in Kidlington with our annual Playathon. Sainsbury’s have been a great support and allowed us to come into their store, entertaining the staff and customers and raising money to replace our very old PA system. This year we raised £876.48p and there are a few photos for you to see what we did. With just over a week to go we are looking forward to singing in the Christmas Carol Service at St. Mary’s Church next Tuesday at 7pm and to finish we will be singing in our Christmas assemblies on the last day of term.
It is at times like this when I reflect on the fantastic support of our parents and people from our local community that really encourage our students to practise and to take the plunge and perform to a hall or a shop full of people. It is lovely to hear such positive comments and feedback, even letters to say how fantastic the students have been. I do hope you can join us for the Carol Service. It is free and there will be mince pies and hot drinks afterwards and a time to share and meet others.
Have a very Happy Christmas.
