Last week the St Ed’s Family and our community were treated to a wonderful Carol Service at All Saints Church in Reading.
The service was held in honour of our previous Headmaster, Stuart Morgan-Nash, and a candle was lit and a contemplative silence was held in his honour. However, Stuart would not have wanted the Carol Service to be a solemn occasion – on the contrary, he would have wanted our children to celebrate and enjoy the festivities to the fullest and our children certainly did!
Our impeccably behaved boys sang at the top of their voices and we raised the rafters with renditions from every class in our school. Our readers also demonstrated our school values and were confident and delivered their pieces beautifully. It was a particular delight that each and every child performed and that we have some tremendous choristers in our Chamber Choir – we even had Ukuleles and Recorders playing along!
I would like to say an enormous thank you to Mrs Hagyard, our Music and Drama teacher, who has clearly inspired our children to superb heights in her music lessons and would like to thank Mrs Andrew for arranging and directing our readings. The Carol Service was simply superb and I am proud of our children and the St Ed’s Family.
