Pupils, staff and parents of Rydal Penrhos were in fine voice at the annual Christmas Carol Service.
A large congregation descended on St John’s Church on Thursday, December 14, which is the last formal engagement at the school before the highly anticipated Christmas break.
There were a host of songs to enjoy throughout the performance, which were sang superbly by the audience and Rydal Penrhos Choir.
The audience also enjoyed a special sermon from the Reverend Rob Beamish, who was the special guest at the service, while Rev’d Nick Sissons and Headmaster Simon Smith also spoke to the congregation.
There was also a reading from Gill Wilkinson from charity Action for Children, who visited the school once again to pick up presents that had been donated by pupils, staff and parents as part of their annual campaign to help those less fortunate.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “There was a real sense of togetherness at the event, which was impeccably observed by pupils and staff alike.
“We would like to offer our sincerest thanks to Rev’d Beamish Mrs Wilkinson for taking time out of her busy Christmas schedule to take part in the service, which is a poignant reminder to what the season really is all about.
“The spirit of giving has been evident throughout the term at Rydal Penrhos with the immense amount of charity work that has been done by the staff and pupils, something we hope will continue long into the future.
“We wish our staff, pupils and parents a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
