Carol service raises roof

Pupils from both the Prep and Senior School helped raise the roof at St Matthew’s Church at the annual carol service.

This important school and community event is always a fitting celebration of the festive season and this year’s was no exception. The Church pews were thronged with parents, staff and the wider Hydesville community, who enjoyed a wonderful service that included readings, elocution pieces, solos and group performances. The congregation joined the children in singing a number of hymns and the final procession involving the whole school carrying candles was a beautiful ending to the evening.
