"Just remember, the true spirit of Christmas lies in your heart." The Polar Express
On Tuesday 17th December the college community gathered for the annual Christmas Concert.
The concert was under the banner, Let it Show, Let it Show, Let it Show.
Music, Dance and Drama students provided a vibrant mix of repertoire which created an amazing atmosphere for the large audience of parents and friends of the college.
The evening commenced with a wonderful Christmas Reflection, by Joe Roberts on the Legend of the Candy Cane. The evening was further enhanced by the wonderful performances by Longmoor Primary School, Dance and Choir ensembles.
Paul Dickinson said, after the event, "A massive thank you to everyone who attended our Christmas Concert. The concert was fully sold out and we had a wonderful audience which were treated to performances of the highest standard."
In Indiana, a candy maker wanted to make a candy that could be a reminder of Jesus Christ, so he made the Christmas candy cane. He started off with a stick of pure white hard candy. The white colour symbolized the virgin birth and the sinless nature of Jesus, and the hard candy symbolized the solid rock which was the foundation of the church, and firmness of the promises of God.
The candy maker made the candy in the form of a 'J', which represented the name of Jesus and the staff of the Good Shepherds. He then stained it with three stripes which showed the scourging Jesus received, and symbolized the blood shed by Christ on the cross.
