Christmas Carol Service hits the right note
Last night, Highnam Academy Key Stage Two pupils performed 'One Bright Star' in the Church of the Holy Innocents. Over the past couple of weeks the pupils have been preparing for their part in the bi-annual Carol Service. This year the Academy welcomed the Reverend Steve Taylor who led the service. Parents, grandparents and friends joined in the singing of carols and then sat back to enjoy the performance. The Cantata, One Bright Star, told the Christmas Story through five songs and narrative.
The narrators were: Isabel J, Abi T, Matthew, Emily and Alex N
The Soloist were: Hannah D, James, Alex G and Annalise
Throughout the Cantata the pupils sang with real enthusiasm and filled the church with their voices. Well done to everyone who took part and a special thank you to Mrs House for conducting and Mr Tibbles for playing the piano.
The collection at the end was in aid of the charity Shelter who support homeless people across Britain.
Here are some photographs from the dress rehearsal...
