On a bright, crisp Sunday morning, boarders, staff and visiting parents and friends gathered together for a wonderful service in St James’s, Newton. Sun streamed through the windows as we sang the first hymn, All Things Bright and Beautiful, and the themes of light, love and hope, embodied in the coming of Christ, featured throughout the service.
Mr Hadfield, by turns entertaining and thought provoking in his culinary-based address, demonstrated how, through even small acts of kindness, we can brighten the lives of people who are lonely, worried or upset. These sentiments were reflected in readings and prayers delivered by the children, and the hopeful, consoling anthem, The Candle Song, beautifully sung by the Choir.
Fortified by the service and Mr Hadfield’s chocolate brownies, everyone returned to school, where visitors enjoyed coffee in the Headmaster’s house.
