Heart-warming Nativity fills Salisbury Cathedral's Trinity Chapel

Our Nativity, held in the beautiful surroundings of the Trinity Chapel in Salisbury Cathedral, is always a special occasion bringing together pupils, families and the wider school community to celebrate the festive season.

This year we were able to use the wonderful Stephenson Hall at the Leaden Hall campus which provided a brilliant space for our dress rehearsal last Friday.

Then on Monday, the children dressed up again, but this time to tell a traditional version of the Nativity story in the glorious surroundings of the Trinity Chapel. They seamlessly transferred all their skills to this new and impressive setting and spoke out with clarity and expression as well as singing joyfully and with astounding pitch.

Every child from Nursery to Year 2 played a vital role in the storytelling with 21 of the eldest children acting as narrators complete with candle lanterns. The story’s main characters, Mary, Joseph, the Angel Gabriel, three shepherds, three wise men (complete with three Pages), three innkeepers and their wives, the bright star and King Herod, were all played by Year 1 pupils. The youngest children, aged three and four, provided the characters for the rest of the story as angels, stars and lambs.

A very special moment for everyone was the Nursery children smiling, dancing and shining as the bright stars whilst playing their bells and singing ‘Twinkling Star.’

Our school Chaplain, Jenny welcomed everyone and Canon Ed, who is well known to the children, finished this wonderful service with a Blessing.
