A snowy, winter wonderland led into Ipswich Schools outdoor Christmas Celebration services as Michaelmas term came to an end in this extraordinary year. Reverend Crompton-Battersby led the outdoor service with readings and carols sung by different school ensembles, including the Chapel Choir. As part of the celebration, there was a nativity performance, featuring the sheep - Bluebell and Bramble - and a rotating cast of shepherds, wise men, angels, Mary, and even baby Jesus.

The whole school, including the Lodge Day Nursery, the Prep and Senior Schools, took part in the celebration which took place in the open air at Anglesea Heights. Each part of the day featured children from the relevant school bubble so that they were able to enjoy the event whilst complying with PHE guidelines. 

Thanks go to the many different people and organisations who helped to make the event a success, including all the school staff, Britten Faculty of Music, Ipswich Catering and Estates teams, Friends of Ipswich School, Synergy for the sound, and Coes for the loan of props for the Winter Wonderland.

It was a cheerful and uplifting way to end the school term together!
