Senior School Carol Service, December 2018
Students and staff of Bridgewater School were today joined by family and friends from the wider community at St. Mark’s Church, Worsley, for the Senior Department Carol Service.
A joyful celebration, opened by an expressive solo recital by Lyall Rowland of Year 7 and followed by performances from Bridgewater’s Instrumental Ensemble and Vocal Group, this year’s service was also one of poignancy and contemplation.
As we collectively marked the centenary of the end of the first World War, we all continue to witness war and conflict rage across the planet. With the ultimate hope of enduring peace, the Reflection this year was chosen as ‘The Power of Love’. A thought-provoking look at the challenges that we continue to face and the potential we hold.
Mr Matt Barker, Deputy Head, commented: “The love and respect that we show for one another remains one of the most powerful things we possess. As said by the late Professor Stephen Hawking: “We are very, very small, but we are profoundly capable of very big things.”
