Carwarden House Christmas Service

Carwarden House Christmas Service

A Carwarden House seasonal celebration was held at St Peter's Church in Frimley again this year. With lots of singing, poetry reading and the re-enacting of the famous World War 1 Christmas truce.

On the afternoon of Tuesday 16th December the whole school were very fortunate to be able to use the beautiful parish church of St Peter’s, Frimley for the Key Stage 3 Christmas service followed by a Christmas market run by the Key Stage 4 and sixth form pupils.

The concert started with a welcome from Rev. Margaret Massey and Year 7 then entertained us with a reading of the poem, The Night Before Christmas.  They all read beautifully and then led the congregation in singing the carol Little Donkey.

Year 8 then shared with us their reflective thoughts about Christmas and sang the magical carol, Silent Night.

Class 9F had written an acrostic poem based on the word CHRISTMAS which they read with great enthusiasm.  They then sang Calypso Carol, with Sharlie Morgan-Lewis featuring as soloist.

Then Class 9E performed a drama sketch of the Christmas day truce in the trenches during World War 1.  The students skillfully illustrated the momentary peace which existed between the two opposing armies, playing football and card games and sharing drink and cigarettes.

The concert finished with the whole of Key Stage 3 gathering on the stage, festively dressed in Christmas jumpers and hats, to sing We Wish You a Merry Christmas, featuring Anabella Lovell in Year 7 as soloist.

Mr O’Brien  closed the service with thanks to the team at St Peter’s Church for allowing the school to hold it’s Christmas service in such a lovely environment as well as a tribute to all the students, praising them for their confidence in standing up on stage and not only speaking so well but singing so tunefully!

The Christmas market was then enjoyed by all and thanks go to the Key Stage 4 and sixth form teams for organising it so well.  The profits from the market will be donated to St Peter’s Church.
