Christmas Chapel

11 Dec Christmas Chapel

On Sunday, 10th December, the Woodstock community gathered for the Christmas Chapel in the gym. Parents, students, teachers and employees were joined by a choir from the Woodstock Hindustani Church. Everyone enjoyed a traditional carol service which in reading and song told the story of the birth of Christ. The band and orchestra played beautifully and they were complimented by a soloist singing the opening verse of Once in Royal David’s City. Children from across the school were involved in the service with Grades 1 and 2 dressing up to build a tableau around Mary and Joseph in front of a specially constructed manger. Grades 5 and 6 sang a Garhwali carol and dressed in typical Garhwali clothing, and, a staff choir sang beautifully. A large number of upper years students played musical instruments, sang and read.

This was a wonderful celebration which brought the whole community together in order to mark the birth of the Prince of Peace. The Chaplain, Rev. Simon Paul closed the service with a blessing asking for God’s peace on our community, on our families and upon the wider world.

    Half way round the world in distance, and 65+ years since I was there, I feel the magical wonder of “Woodstock”. It is a privilege each of you share with all who have been touched by this place/concept. A Woodstock Christmas is Christmas indeed! Thank you for sharing!
