Carol Service

Our annual Carol Service took place on Tuesday 10th December, and visitors enjoyed an evening of carols, musical performances and readings. 

This year, the service offered the chance to reflect on the reality faced by refugees and those seeking asylum throughout the world. We were humbled to have in school a Lampedusa Cross, made from pieces of a boat that was wrecked on 11 October, 2013 off the coast of Lampedusa, Italy. Over 300 Eritrean and Somali refugees were drowned en-route from Libya to Europe, whilst the inhabitants of the island helped to save the lives of 155 others.
Moved by the plight of those involved, the island carpenter, Mr Tuccio, began to craft crosses from the wreckage and gave them to survivors - as a reflection of their salvation from the sea and hope for the future.


Over 250 members of our school community joined together to reflect, pray, listen and enjoy the season of Advent; whilst looking forward to Christmas. Special thanks to our Choir and Band, as well as the Music and Chaplaincy departments and Fr David Yates of English Martyrs, Whalley.  


Photographs from the service can be viewed here.
