The West Bridgford School

Christmas Carol Service

One of the highlights of the School Calendar is the Carol Service. The beautiful church of St Giles (by the Police Station) houses such a memo-rable event every year with around 150 students from across the age groups (and a few staff to boot!) This year there will be the usual readings (Christian and secular), along with excellent performances by the Drama students as well as music by the Or-chestra, Jazz Group, String Ensemble, Flute Choir, Brass Group and, this year, a joint performance by the stu-dents and staff choirs of a wonderful song called ‘Bethlehem’ (funny name for a Christmas piece!)

The event on Monday 17th December starts at 6.30pm and will last until around 7.45pm. Please resist the temptation to ‘drop the kids off’; if you’ve never been to see this specta-cle, or even if your children are not involved, you will be particularly wel-come. The church is usually packed, so arrive early (from 6pm) for a good seat! There is no charge to get in to the church, but there will be a retiring collection for a local charity, so please be willing to pay to get out!
