A fantastic afternoon was had by all fortunate to attend the 2018 Christmas Entertainment afternoon at St
Joseph’s. Residents of local care and residential homes joined grandparents of St Joseph’s children for an afternoon of carols and Christmas singing, followed up by a festive quiz and all topped off with mince pies, tea and coffee.
The audience were initially treated to music from Canzonetta, the Boys’ Choir and the Chamber Choir, all of whom sounded fabulous. This was followed by a very impressive rendition of The Holly and the Ivy, which showed just how accomplished the choirs were in relation to the less trained singers, and rounded off with carols with which everyone participated.
It was also a pleasure to welcome back Janet Worsnip, a teacher who is a very important part of St Joseph’s school history. She taught biology and science at the school for many years, and was very pleased to be back. Mr Scott said of Miss Worsnip “I know how highly she was regarded during her time here from those who taught with her. It was a privilege to see her back in school, and it is because of teachers like her that the school has such a proud past.”
The children then served their guests as they enjoyed the festive food. All agreed it was a very successful afternoon’s entertainment, and a great chance for faces from St Joseph’s past and present to share some seasonal joy.
