Christmas Carol Concert

The Carol Concert which took place in the Hall on 21st December was  organised by 3 girls, Georgia, Emma and Hannah. They would like to say a big ‘Thank-you’ to everyone who came to the event to support them and their exciting cause.  The amount raised was approximately £50 each towards the school trip to the ‘Cornish Festival’ in Winconsin, USA where they will perform for the local residents. The girls really enjoyed singing communal carols together and meeting new people over the refreshments which were kindly donated to them by Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury Stores. Also a big thank you to everyone who donated raffle prizes.
