On the very cold evening of Wednesday 14th December, Sunbury Manor held their festive Christmas Concert. It was an extravaganza of music and Christmas joy - just what we all needed after such a busy term and a delightful way to end 2022. Our many parent /carer guests were treated to wonderful solos and group performances and even an incredible rendition of Jingle Bells on the Djembe Drums. The SMS staff choir could not let the students have all the fun and joined them singing ‘Candlelight Carol’ and ‘We Wish you a Merry Christmas’ - they also gave us a very comical version of ‘The Twelve days of Christmas.’ Well done to those pupils who baked amazing biscuits for our audience too. It was a brilliant evening – thank you to everyone who joined us celebrate.
