On Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th December we held our annual Christmas Concert in the Lee Hall.  We were delighted that so many of the children's family and friends were able to join us for both our afternoon and evening performances. 

Both performances began with the brass and strings ensembles.  The children then performed their readings, songs and opening prayer brilliantly. 

Rev. Michael Currie concluded our evening performance by bringing us a Christmas message.  

It really was a NIGHT OF ALL NIGHTS!
