27th December 15
The Senior School celebrated Christmas and the end of the Autumn Term with many different activities and events. On the Thursday before the end of term, the first two lessons were taken up with wrapping the many donated presents for the children of Emaus, who without this generosity would otherwise go without. Each Tutor Group were responsible for sorting the gifts into appropriate ages and gender and then wrapping them and placing them into beautiful stockings. This was followed by a small party for each Tutor Group.
In the afternoon the whole school was treated to some very entertaining Christmas based performances which each House put together. Some very funny sketches kept the audience amused and of course Christmas wouldn’t be the same without an appearance from the Grinch. Appropriately, the Green House’s act was a shortened and very funny version of the Grinch, with the major part being played by Tatiana Nesterenko. Dancing and singing along with Christmas Carols from around the world were all part of the afternoon’s entertainment which was enjoyed by all. Mr Thornton, Sr Estrada and Mr Castle along with some Year 11 students, were perhaps the favourites of the afternoon with their ‘talented’ dancing to a compilation of different dance songs including ‘Gangnam Style’!
