Christmas has certainly arrived here at St Peter’s.
The PTA ran a hugely successful Christmas Fair. Thank you to all who attended and everyone who helped out. I think that Father Christmas has only just recovered, ten days later.
This week was Nativities week! One of my favourite days of the year features the Nativities rehearsals, performed to the whole school. The older children just love remembering their own productions.
The lights are dimmed and a drum roll heralds the first of two shows…
Miss Paver had created a nativities ‘trailer’ featuring rehearsal footage and using real ‘green screen’ technology. Mrs Bruce-Jones wrote the script for the early years and we saw the children really delivering some cracking and topical one-liners. The singing, acting and quality of the productions was superb. Thank you so much to all of the team for their hard work. Following the dress rehearsals, the children performed their shows on the following Thursday and Friday.
They have all done so brilliantly. Thank you for your attendance and support. Thanks also to Tom Hurley for taking some really beautiful pictures of the children; a few of which you can see here alongside this article.
The boys’ Y13 rugby team had a truly brilliant day on Wednesday, winning the U13 Mount Kelly rugby festival. A further match report features in the most recent newsletter but enough to say that I am hugely proud of them, their spirit, determination and great teamwork. Well done boys.
One of our Year 8 girls have been awarded a Music Scholarship to Wells Cathedral School. An incredible achievement that we are very proud of. Wells is one of the top Music specialist schools in the country, if not the world and we congratulate both our student and her music teachers on her achievement.
