Riebeek College is celebrating six decades of annual carol services in its 140 year history. The Carol Service will be on Monday, November 27th at 18:30.

Proceeds go to Child Welfare.

“We are looking forward to a festive and enjoyable evening of carols. The audience can expect to hear our junior school perform, among other carols, ‘Jingle Bells’ sung in a jazz style and our senior school and junior school choirs perform,” said Kieran Stear, principal of Riebeek College.

Favourites such as ‘Mary, did you know?’ and ‘Little Drummer Boy’ are also included in the delightful programme.

“It is with humility that we hand over the proceeds to Child Welfare annually and the girls also donate Christmas gifts to the organisation.”

The former principal, Marilyn Dodd Woods, who retired last year, recalled performing in the annual carol service in her Sub B year when it was held in Magennis Park before it moved to an annual event in the school hall, the Sholto McIntyre Hall.

“This nostalgic, feel-good evening has stood the test of time and continues to improve with age, through many changes,” said Stear.

Guest artists include the Variations String Quartet and New Apostolic Church Orchestra. There is a R20 donation per person on arrival and further donations are welcomed. Christmas cards coloured in by our junior school learners are on sale in the foyer on the night.
