TGS Ends the Autumn Term with a Successful Carol Concert

17th December 21

On the last day of Autumn term, TGS children held their annual carol concert to spread Christmas cheer and raise money for charity. After the last assembly of term, the children gathered with their teachers and loved ones at St Silas Church to perform festive songs.  

The concert was filled with instrumental and singing performances. Each child sang and played the recorder with their form. The school’s guitar ensemble, recorder ensemble, and three choirs also performed. The concert consisted of a mix of traditional carols, Christmas-themed songs, and ended with everyone joining in to sing a rendition of the Puerto Rican song ‘Feliz Navidad’. 

The children spent weeks practising for the big concert, and their hard work certainly paid off! It was wonderful to watch the children performing live to an audience of parents, grandparents, and teachers after the concert was pre-recorded last year. The standard of music was very high, and many parents joined in with the festive singing through their masks. 

The carol concert marked the end of a festive and fun-filled week at school. Children in each form enjoyed a range of Christmas-themed activities, and exchanged handmade gifts with their friends in class Secret Santas. At the last assembly of term, Miss Gowers gifted each child a special book with a personalised bookplate. As a final treat, the Wetherby Senior School brass band arrived to play a range of songs for the children. Their medley of Christmas carols and performance of ‘Jingle Bells’ had the entire school singing along! 

The Gower School children raised a total of £421.20 to donate to The Vision, St Silas Church’s drop-in project for Islington’s homeless and vulnerable. What a charitable way to end the Autumn term!
