Carol Service at St Andrew's Church
Our school was reunited altogether at our Christmas Carol Service on Wednesday 20th December 2023. It was an emotional service, especially when we welcomed Mr and Mrs Twinley (owners of Hatfield Place) and thanked them for their generosity in hosting our school for most of the first half of the Autumn term.
Father Stephen opened the carol service with prayer and Mrs Black led the children, parents and guests through carols and readings. Our Year 6 House Captains did a wonderful job of reading out the Christmas Story and each year group sang a carol to link with the readings: Year 3 It was on a starry night, Year 4 Little Donkey, Year 5 Away in a Manger and Year 6 We Three Kings. The whole school sang Midnight and This Christmas Time (a real tear-jerker) to the parents and visitors before they joined us altogether with singing Hark the Herald Angels Sing. What a wonderful whole-school celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ and a fitting way to end 2023 at St Andrew's Junior School.
