On Wednesday I enjoyed a quick visit to the excellent new venue for our King’s Equestrian centre which can now be found at Orchard Portman. A real step up, the facility is a fine livery of several stables and a brand new arena. There were three former King’s Hall pupils there on their horses and I know that some of our current riders are looking forward to heading there tomorrow for their Saturday activity. It looked terrific.
Just in case I’d forgotten how it goes, I’ve had my memory of the ‘Greatest Story Ever Told’ refreshed a few times this week. I so enjoyed catching up with the Nursery Nativity, was behind the camera for the Year1/Reception Nativity and have been helping out with the Prep Carol Service for good measure.
The readers for the Carol Service, who have all been preparing diligently, will pop up in a few lovely locations around the school to deliver their part of the narrative whilst Mr DJ has been preparing the choir and all is coming together nicely ready for Sunday’s service. We will be sure to send you and the children a link to the 5.30 pm service, as well as a service sheet, so that we can all join in from our various venues to share the experience in the same time, if not space.
Here is another quick link to time and space – two pictures, four years apart, click here to see this lovely boarding Twitter post.
The Newsletter has other mentions of Christmas past, present and future: a few reflections of the last seven days and some pointers about the seven days ahead. Yes, in a week’s time we will be heading home for the festive period but, in the meantime, there is much to be done as we complete tasks from the term as well as enjoy a final good dollop of Christmas cheer.
