St Edmund’s Catholic Primary School Diocese of Westminster Follow us on @stedmundsschoo1 Newsletter to Parents 9th December 2015 The St Edmunds Choir has been very busy performing! The choir performed at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch on Thursday, 26th November to support their fundraising appeal for Place2Be. A clip of their performance can be seen on the website. On Monday the choir performed at the Morgan Stanley Trustees’ evening to help them bring some Christmas cheer! Both performances were brilliant and all children in the choir have been complimented on their fantastic manners and beautiful singing. Well done, Choir – great ambassadors for our school. The children really enjoyed taking part in the Jump Rope for Heart day on Wednesday, 2nd December. If you have not sent your sponsor money in to school please do, as we would like to send the money to the British Heart Foundation as soon as possible. The Carol Concert was held last night and KS2 children filled the church with beautiful singing! We hope you all enjoyed the show.
