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!”
