Carol Service 2017

blogEntryTopperThe school’s annual carol service took place on Tuesday 12th December at St Katharine’s and St John’s Church in Old Colwyn. Over 60 pupils who sang, played and recited their way through the Christmas story led the service. Highlights included solo performances by Adam Arshad on the tuba, Aimee Parry on the tenor horn, Ben Sansom on the clarinet and Bethan Elliott on the violin. There were many vocal performances and the junior and senior choirs performed a selection of traditional and contemporary items. For the first time ever, the service also included pupils from the Performing Arts ‘More Able and Talented’ group, who composed and performed two Christmas pieces specially written for the occasion. The evening ended with all the pupils singing a rousing performance of ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’, which was followed by refreshments and Mrs Bronwen McKibben’s famous mince pies. Over £170 was raised from the collection towards the school’s Madagascar fund and Colwyn Bay Rotary Club.
