Christmas Comes to King's Hall
What a whirlwind these last few weeks have been. Christmas did indeed come early to King's, and it was wonderful to start the merriment a little earlier than normal.
Our boarders got into the festive spirit across the Long Weekend at the end of November, and as always, helped dress the tree and made preparations for their Boarders' Feast, which this year, featured a fish and chip van and a knickerbocker glory station.
Our Year 8 performances were a resounding success. Taking on three productions instead of the usual one, Mrs Keirle was as creative as ever and the more serious and grown-up themes explored across all three were well received by our audiences. The children, as always, rose to the challenge and delivered some fantastic performances.
Many lessons have taken on a distinctive Christmas flavour, and classrooms have been adorned with tinsel and lights wherever possible, and the Christmas jumpers on display are getting better and better as each year passes.
Over in Pre-Prep, with a Christmassy grotto feel, our youngest children were engaged in all manner of festive activities, from parties and crafts, to a visit from Santa himself. The nativities produced from all the year groups were a credit to Mrs Luckhurst and to the children, who were very entertaining.
Our Christmas lunches were as delicious as ever, carefully created by our wonderful catering team, and our grounds and maintenance staff have been busy with jobs around the school, ahead of the new year.
Taking a slightly different approach, our carol service still took place at King's College, but instead of a physical congregation, it was recorded and streamed to parents to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes. It was still as beautiful as ever, and provided us with the opportunity to hear our wonderful choir.
We know that everyone is ready for a rest, after what has been an incredibly long (it feels that way!), but productive Michaelmas Term.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
