A Joyful Christmas Concert & Nativity

Last night’s annual Christmas Concert and Nativity, one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the Heritage year, offered up an opportunity to celebrate the season in song. Joyful musical performances by Infants, Juniors and Seniors—as well as each of our Choirs—displayed a delightful range of musical styles, from traditional to calypso. It was lovely to see staff members joining in with the Seniors as well, and to sing along to seasonal favourites with the congregational carols. The Nativity featured our Infants, with readings by the Head Girl and Boy and narration by pupils in Year 7 through Year 10. The event began with Mr Fletcher inviting us to consider the question ‘Is humanity humanity’s only hope?’; he reminded us that the Christmas story points to a hope beyond ourselves in the form of Emmanuel—God with us. Special thanks to Mrs Caldwell, Mr Dalton and Mr and Mrs Wright for their superb musical accompaniment; congratulations to Mrs Lowe, Mrs Good, Mrs Shore and of course Mrs Zurcher for their brilliant musical direction; to Mrs Carter and the Infants staff for their hard work on the Nativity programme; and to everyone involved in the preparations for an altogether heartwarming and festive evening.
