The House Carol Competition 2017

The house carol competition is always one of the most competitive house competitions, and this year was no exception. 1st, 2nd and 3rd years could be found around the school in the weeks before practicing their performances at every available opportunity.

Thursday the 7th of December finally arrived and the festivities were in full swing as 1st to 3rd years gathered in the sports hall and the competition got started. Barat 3 kicked the competition off with their rendition of "Let it Snow" followed by Barat 2's "Merry Christmas Everyone" and Barat 1's inaugural performance together in a house competition, bringing "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" to the stage. The spotlight then moved to Chadwick, who preformed "Do they Know it's Christmas?", "All I want for Christmas is you" and "Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer." Dargan treated us to their adaptations of "It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas", "Frosty the Snowman" and "Santa Clause is Coming to Town." Duchesne continued to raise the bar with their performances of "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime" and "Jingle Bell Rock", before Duchesne closed the competition with "Deck the Halls."

The standard throughout was incredibly high, making it a very difficult decision for our panel of guest judges – Ms Farrel, Mr Egan, Ms Brady and Ms O'Connor who did a great job giving feedback on each performance. Everyone enjoyed some Christmas karaoke while the judges deliberated, and finally they came to a decision.

Chadwick 1 came out on top of the first year category, Duchesne 2 triumphed over the second years, Barat 3 dominated the third years (each earing 50 house points) while Barat 1 claimed overall victory and 100 points for their house.
