The Four Schools Carol Concert

On Monday evening, our flute ensemble performed Carol of the Bells by Leontovych at the annual Four Schools Carol Concert held at St Remigius Church.

This is an event that brings together the four schools in Hethersett, each school contributing a musical item and a poem; the head teacher of each school also presents a reading. Our flutes sounded
truly beautiful in the wonderful acoustics of the church, the harmonies ringing out.

Deputy Head girl Charlie Harding read Christmas Carol, a lovely poem by Felicia Hemans, and Mr Crump read Ben Jonson’s A Hymn on the Nativity of My Saviour.

Remember: this week we have our own school carol service in St Remigius, on Thursday 14th at 2.15pm. All welcome!

We are so looking forward to our beautiful Christingle service at 2.00pm at St Remigius Church this afternoon and seeing all our Lower Prep families.

All children from Nursery to Year 6 have been making their Christingles at school and brought in their Christingle candles, kindly filled with spare change at home (thank you!). Here are some of them waiting to go to the church later. All proceeds to go to The Children’s Society

Boarders pay their respects on Rememberance Day

poppy_wreathOn Sunday, Olivia, Harriet, Emily, some Sixth Formers and I went to St Remigius church for Remembrance Day. After a minute of silence the wreath laying began and Olivia and I laid the school wreath.

It was a great experience for everybody.
