The Prep School service was held in the afternoon and an appreciative audience of parents, pupils and staff joined in lustily with the congregational carols and were treated to some wonderful performances from the Prep School Choir under the Direction of Jeremy Weaver. The readers and soloists should all be very proud of their efforts in what was a superb service.
The Cathedral was absolutely packed out for the Senior School Service in the evening. Ten minutes into the service, parents were still being ushered into seats and spaces wherever they could be found! The music was outstanding with Eleanor Pearce’s solo in ‘O Holy Night’ one of many highlights. Sara Reynolds had the Choir performing at their absolute best at the end of what has been a long week with concerts at school, Eaton Square and Shoreham. The standard of reading this year was excellent and thanks must go to Mrs White for her efforts in preparing the readers for what is a very daunting task.
The congregation heard about the Chaplain’s night out clubbing in Kigali with Bishop Dennis in Rwanda and after a couple of excellent funny stories from the Rev left, happily, for the Christmas holidays. A wonderful, uplifting, end to a long successful term!
