Ding Dong Merrily on Highfields


Talented students have been spreading festive cheer with a series of performances across the region.

A group of singers were in fine voice when they performed for shoppers at Co-op supermarket, in Penn, before entertaining residents at The Firs Care Home in Sedgley, and then patients and staff at Compton Care.

The festive ‘tour’ came after students showcased their singing and acting talents at an annual church carol service. St Bartholomew’s Church, in Penn, hosts the carol service for Highfields School students every Christmas.

Members of the school’s Drama Club performed A Christmas Carol while the choir sang Silent Night and Joyful Joyful, from Sister Act. In addition, the school’s Head Team read four Christmas Bible readings and led traditional Christmas carols, before the congregation enjoyed mince pies and hot drinks.

Ms S Bishop, Highfields’ Head of Extra Curricular Performing Arts, said: “Our students put on some brilliant performances and really spread Christmas cheer across the Midlands.”
