Tuesday evening I attended Movilla High School, Newtownards for their Christmas Carol Service. I was there with the tin whistle class - that I teach on a Friday mornings who were asked to perform. The students choose 5 pieces - Amazing Grace, Once In Royal David's City, Silent Night, Away In A Manger and We wish you a Merry Christmas.
They played very, very well and received a great cheer from fellow students, the gang were quite nervous but excited - but great for their personal development.
Following the service we had tea, coffee, mince pies and shortbread and great crack with a few old school chums of mine - we may look a little older and greyer but the memories remained clear.
