Carol Service 2017

On Thursday 14th December, Coleraine Grammar School held their annual Carol Service in St Patricks Church, Coleraine. It was lovely to see the venue packed
with several hundred parents, grandparents, teachers, governors, members of the general public and pupils. They were all there to enjoy the wonderful
instrumental and vocal skills of a wide variety of pupils from all year groups as they celebrated Christmas.

The pupils had been rehearsing tirelessly with their teachers: Mr Richard McCreery, Mrs Jayne McCreery and Ms Suzanne Cameron, for several weeks beforehand
and the result was an array of expertly performed Christmas music, both traditional and newly composed pieces from some of the GCSE Music pupils.
A variety of choirs performed: senior choir, senior chamber choir, junior choir and junior chamber choir to name but a few. The school orchestra
and various other instrumental ensembles showed their talent as well. Also, the Christmas Bible lessons were read by pupils from year 8 to year
14.

The services were a wonderful way to get into the Christmas spirit and all the pupils involved were superb, whether performing or ushering or helping
with the sound desk. Well done to all the contributors and organisers. The school would like to thank the Rector of St Patrick’s for the use of
their church building to celebrate this Christmas season with the local community.
