On December 2nd, the Middle School had its annual carol service. I sung in the Grade 8 choir. The two songs we sung were “Away in a Manger” and “Agnus Dei.” I enjoyed singing “Agnus Dei” the best because it was Latin which was totally awesome! There were eight Grade 8 soloists in “Agnus Dei”: Jen Shan, Airlia Hie, Athena Kerins, Elizabeth Morton, David Lee, Keiran Large, Matty McColl, and Tim Bernstein. I thought that they did a very good job and brought life to the performance.
The Grade 6 and 7 choirs also sang. For the first few songs, they sang from the balcony, creating a very meditative atmosphere. The audience joined in for “Silent Night” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.” Several students shared reflections on “Good King Wenceslas” which really gave a feel of classic Christmas spirit. Merry Christmas everyone! Have a great holiday.
