George wins Carol Writing Competition

We are delighted to report that George in Year 4 has won first prize in the Junior section of the recent carol competition run by the Saffron Walden Choral Society.

This fantastic achievement was announced at the 'Spirit Of Christmas' held in St. Mary's church, Saffron Walden, on Saturday 8th December. The 37 children from our school choir had performed their two carols - Away In A Manger and Ding Dong Merrily On High. The choir really sang them well and Mrs Callaghan, Mrs Archer and Mrs Pawson were very proud of them.

Near the end of the service, the results of the carol competition were announced in reverse order. It was as nerve racking as the 'X factor' or 'Strictly'! To a full church, George was announced the winner of the Junior section with his composition called Three Kings Are Travelling. It was so exciting and George received fantastic support from the KSJ choir! The society then performed his carol. The song was also put on a CD which George received with a certificate and he was given tickets for a concert at Newport Free Grammar School.
