Students from Richmond Park Academy will spread a bit of Christmas cheer when they perform two carol concerts for the local community next week.

Lesley Kirby, Headteacher at RPA, comments: “Christmas isn’t just about who is getting a Playstation 4: with modern-day life it is easy to forget that this is a time to be with our families and share some good will to those around us. We are very proud of our choir and the excellence of our music department, which, as part of our £10 million campus rebuilding and refurbishment, is now going to be able to develop even further in the newly completed music block.”

Children from this rapidly growing Richmond borough school will be performing at All Saints Church on Tuesday 17 December from 7pm and then again, in support of a local retirement centre, at Barnes Green Social Club from 12pm on Wednesday 18 December.

Beatrice Fairbairn, Music Teacher at RPA, who has been working hard to get the children ready for their concerts, adds: “The children have shown such commitment and dedication and have been rehearsing really hard. I have every confidence they will put on an excellent show; the East Sheen community are in for a real treat!”

Tickets for the concert at All Saints are £3 per adult and £1 per child, which includes a mince pie and mulled wine for the adults. Tickets are available on the door on the night. All monies raised will go towards new music department equipment.
