On Thursday 15th December, just a few days after we’d taken possession of our new building, the Performing Arts department put on our annual Christmas Carol Concert in the new Main Hall. The pupils taking part had given up the option of a day off school and had instead come in to rehearse in the new space. Getting to grips with not just a new stage, but lighting and sound systems too, both pupils and teachers had their work cut out. Nonetheless, as we’ve come to expect over the years, the concert, played to a packed audience, was fantastic. A few photos are included over the page but many more are available on our website.
There was a wide variety of performances on show, many of which were developed and supported by our excellent peripatetic teachers.
Thanks also to those who bought raffle tickets on the night, and mulled wine and mince pies. The proceeds from these have made a significant contribution to our Learning Resource Centre. We’re grateful for the staff of The Boar in Tyla Garw for providing the refreshments.
Congratulations to the pupils and staff for such a festive end to the year.
