Dean’s Award

Over the last few months, Jamie and I have been quietly preparing for the Dean’s Award, which is run through the Diocese for choristers. We had to perform a hymn, Psalm and Anthem; know about a religious festival and related Bible story; suitable hymn, anthem etc,  We had to know about the Church we worship in and about a service of our choice, in detail.

There was a lot to learn and a lot to practise and on Wednesday, we left school early with Daddy and went for the  exam.

Jamie thought he’d failed, because he froze. He can’t have frozen that badly because he passed! The comment on his form is that as he matures he will be a real asset to the choir. Oh how proud am I of my brother?!

And me – I was Commended – I’m doubly thrilled!
