Upper School Carol Service

As we approach the end of a unique year it is important to maintain the traditions that mark key points in the St George’s calendar. Our annual Upper School Carol Service at St Giles' Cathedral, at which the community gathers before dispersing to Christmas festivities and time with family, has not been possible, but we were not defeated.

Today, the Upper School has watched the 2020 Carol Service which was filmed over two days in November at St Giles' Cathedral and St George's. Carols, readings, prayers and music all mark this important celebration each year and it is all included in this year's service. The role of the students and staff, in particular the music department, in allowing this vision to become a reality cannot be praised highly enough. They all demonstrated the 'YES, SHE CAN' approach that prevails within St George’s.

The Carol Service captures the essence of a year dominated by tiers and guidelines to form a fitting record of an aspect of St George's response to COVID-19 in 2020. The video clip above highlights some of the musical items from the Service. To watch the complete Carol Service click on the following link
