In light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic the school changed its usual Christmas service to an online event which pupils and staff tuned into on Tuesday 15th December. The online service was produced by the department of Creative Arts, led by Ms. Donnelly, and featured an array of contributions from pupils, staff and the wider school community.
The service opened with a slideshow of beautiful Christmas themed art work by pupils to the song “Do You Hear What I Hear?” This was followed by readings from school captain Amy-Lee McLachlan and S4 pupil Reanne Mason, then S2 pupil Emy Brandt gave a fantastic rendition on trumpet of “We Three Kings” accompanied by brass tutor Mrs Paterson. The service also contained two thoughtful and optimistic Christmas messages from members of the wider Braidhurst community, Valerie Sim and David Ramage, whilst Head Teacher Mrs Rooney thanked pupils and staff for their resilience and hard work since the school re-opened in August.
The service ended with a lovely solo vocal rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by S6 pupil Lauren Wright followed by another S6 pupil, Cameron May, closing the service with a rousing “Scotland the Brave” on the bagpipes. A huge well done and thank you to everyone who contributed and wishing you all a very happy Christmas.
