Fairfield School in Backwell held a candle-lit festive celebration this week with its annual Christingle Service.

Pupils from Nursery to Year 6 joined teachers and parents to share in the lighting of the Christingles and mark the start of the independent school’s festive celebrations.

The service included readings by Year 6 children, musical performances by the Little Voices Choir, hymns and carols.

Lesley Barton, headmistress at Fairfield School, said: “Our Christingle Service is one of the most popular events on our calendar; the parents love hearing the children sing the hymns and joining in with the lighting of the traditional Christingles.

“The children love it too; they have really enjoyed making the Christingles for our guests and learning more about where the tradition came from.

“We still have our Carol Service to look forward to before a well-deserved Christmas break!”

Fairfield School is an independent co-educational school for children aged 2 to 11. Class sizes are limited to a maximum of 20 at Fairfield School, with many much smaller and there is a very wide range of clubs and activities, sport, music and drama to excite the interest of pupils. Fairfield is historically a PNEU School, which means it is affiliated to the Parents’ National Education Union. There are PNEU schools throughout the UK and the world.
