Traditional Carol Service fills St Remigius…


St Remigius parish church was filled with family and friends of HOHS this afternoon for our carol service, led by Reverend Derek McClean. Head Girl, Deputy Head Girl and Senior Boarder Alex, Emily-Jayne and Shannon led the procession to the choir stalls for the traditional carols and readings, which were interspersed with some musical delights from our choirs and musicians. A particular highlight was the first public performance of “To Bethlehem”, a beautiful and deceptively simple carol written by Warwick, Henry and Stella from Year 6 and Ruby from Year 5. Mrs Richards conducted the Upper Prep Choir and they were accompanied on piano by Warwick and Henry. The poignant “Mary, did you know?”,  sung by Tamikani from Year 12 and Bridget, Karen and Hannah from Year 13, was also a stand-out item,  while all the girls who did readings and led prayers spoke clearly and with great expression.
