Teachers at Lewes Old Grammar School have formed a choir and even stepped into the limelight at the senior school carol concert on Thursday, December 11, at
St John’s Church.
The nine staff members are coached by singing teacher Rachel Munro and have been meeting weekly.
“They’re very well-behaved and learn things pretty quickly,” said Rachel, the school musical theatre director.
“In fact, it’s one of the highlights of my week as it’s a chance to catch up with colleagues and have a good sing. They are always extremely appreciative, which makes it even more rewarding!”
The choir comprises English teachers Gemma Rahm and Lucey Clougherty, chemistry teacher Christine Lowden, biology lecturer Anna Scott, maths teacher Shelley Griffiths, geography master Will Ellis, design technology teacher Kit Wood, operations manager, Tim Laker and is led by Rachel.
It was the first time that they had performed a solo at the school carol concert. They sang a version of Noel, Noel and Pachelbel’s canon.
“The sherry and mince pies definitely increases everyone’s enthusiasm,” says Rachel. “It’s sounded lovely.”
