B Cador: December 2017
There was a sense of being a part of something very special last night, at the Christmas Carol Service in St Margaret's Church.
The Christmas story tells of the birth of Jesus and how rich and poor, locals and visitors came to see the special child; how a child brought a community of people together. Last night, our school community came together to share in the telling of the story led by children of Wrenbury Primary. It was lovely to see the church full to the door with parents and carers, grandparents and family members, teaching staff and governors all there to celebrate this traditional Wrenbury Christmas event .
I'm not sure whether it was sitting (or in my case standing) in a church full of proud parents and grandparents or being in such an old, yet awe inspiring building at night time or looking at a beautiful Christmas tree lit up behind the children or the way the story of the birth of Jesus was told and sung in such an understated way but so eloquently by the children or the childrens' solos in In the Bleak Midwinter or having our KS1 children take part in the service for the first time, even though it was late and they were surely tired after a very long term. Whatever it was, it didn't only touch me but many others I spoke to on the way out, who reported back how 'wonderful' the service had been, how they had 'tingles', like me, listening to In the Bleak Midwinter and the many 'thank you...that was lovely' comments along with big smiles.
Christmas is a special time for many and the Carol Service at St Margaret's is part of what makes it special. I'm very proud of all our children; they are a credit to the school and to their families. Thank you to all who joined us and to the staff who keep giving and delivering a fantastic education for the children and the best gift of all...special memories for the children and their families!
Wishing you all a very peaceful and happy Christmas,
