Pupils at St Mary’s led the annual carol service in the Abbey Church at Buckfast. This year the carol service took the form of a cantata, retelling the Christmas story. Pupils in Year 5 and 6 all read during the service and Reception children created a nativity scene at the front of the church, dressed in traditional costume. At the end of the service, there was a collection for the charity Mary’s Meals, who provide meals for children in their place of education.

The service was recorded by Buckfast Abbey media department and will be available on DVD.
