A whole school community got in the festive spirit last week when it held its annual Christmas carol concert.

Sanders School’s carol concert at St Andrew’s Church, Hornchurch, was hosted by student president Jessica Carvalho and vice-presidents Funmi Lawal, and Tyrese Ryan.

The audience was welcomed to the event by staff members before enjoying a creative array of performances including two drama performances, The Christmas Story and Is it Time Yet? and a reading of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas before the school’s choir finished with a rousing rendition of Merry Christmas Everyone.

Stacey Kyriacou, the school’s community profile officer, said: “Thank you to all of our wonderfully talented singers, musicians and performers for a fabulous start to the festive season.

“Thank you also for the many donations to our creative arts department which will go towards funding future performances.

“Our sincere thanks to St Andrew’s for allowing us to celebrate together in such a beautiful church.”
