Carols in the Community
Last night we joined in the Carols in the Community at Burnley Football Club. We enjoyed meeting pupils from other schools and people from other churches and communities across our town. We listened to the story of Jesus’s birth, prayed together, sang carols and reflected on the real meaning of Christmas. It was lovely to be joined by our families too.
Carol Singing At The Library
We enjoyed singing Christmas Carols and spreading Christmas cheer at Burnley library. We were made very welcome and had a lovely afternoon.
Community Carol Singing
Once again our pupils took part in our ‘Local Churches Together’ Community Carol Singing at Burnley Football Club. Approximately 50 pupils took part. Our school sang ‘Away in a Manger’ and read two extracts from the Christmas story. Lots of our pupils’ parents and families joined us. Bishop John joined the celebration and gave the final blessing. It was a fantastic evening and helped us all to focus on the real meaning of Christmas.
Selfie Madness at Young Voices
The School Choir performed as part of the Young Voices Choir yesterday, 5th March at the Manchester Arena. We had a fantastic time dancing with Urban Stride and singing Pop Medley.
