Christmas performances at St John's church

Today, we held the rehearsals for Thursday night's performance of Children of the World (see some pictures below). This followed last night's excellent performance by Years 3 and 4 which was enjoyed by a very full church audience.

Regarding tomorrow night for Years 5 and 6, we would like parents to drop their children at the school hall - via the side doors - at 6pm and make their own way to the church. Staff will then escort children to the church in a way that we have risk assessed and practised today. Parents were, helpfully, escorting the younger children with us last night but the excess of adults made the road crossings different from that which the children were used to, leading to some confusion. We would ask, therefore, that parents do not walk alongside class lines on the way to church.

Parents are welcome to escort their children from the church after the performance, although staff will be happy - and expecting - to do so. Please join us for refreshments at the school, provided by the PTA, where the draw for the wonderful hampers will be made.
