Carol Singing at St David’s Station!

This morning, 32 Year 2 children walked down to the station to entertain friends, family, station staff and rail passengers with our Christmas songs! The children were all beautifully behaved. They sang with great energy and enthusiasm, enjoyed playing all sorts of instruments along to the songs, and even managed the walk back up the steep hill to school with not a single word of complaint! We are very grateful to the adults who came to support us on this outing and to the audience who came along to watch. Grateful thanks also to the station staff and Starbucks, who provided us all with hot chocolate and caramel waffles. Yum! Well done Year 2!
