The end of term is always very special with Key stage 1 Nativity plays and the Carol Service. Two full houses watched the performances of the Nativity which again proved what an exceptional team we have at St Johns. The acting, singing and dancing of the pupils was outstanding (remember they are only aged 4 – 7), all of them smiling and putting real meaning into their words as well as keeping to the rhythm of the music. Add the costumes, thanks to the parents, and the dedication of the teachers and you have the perfect result.
The Key stage 2 Carol Service at a packed St. John’s Church was just what Christmas is all about. Mulled wine and mince pies greeted the congregation and then the choir and orchestra wowed us with their singing and music. There were readings from Penny Boshoff, member of staff; Jo Maxim, Governor; Grace Anderson, former pupil; George, Yr 6 pupil; David Stringer, parent and Gordon Fisher, volunteer. Fr Robin brought the service to an end by explaining in simple terms the rather complicated last reading and so ended another memorable Carol Service.
