20/12/11 - Community Carol Service & Cake Display 
 
The annual Community Carol Service took place today in St. John's Parish Church, Newtownhamilton. Pupils from Cortamlet, Drumhillery and Newtownhamilton Primary schools attended the service and contributed with musical items and Bible readings. The Newtownhamilton High School Choir also sang two pieces. 
 
After the service, many of the large congregation made their way to the Home Economics department in Newtownhamilton High School for refreshments and also to view the 43 Christmas cakes that had been baked by the Year 10 pupils.  
 
Principal Mr G Mullan then had the unenviable task of selecting the top 3 cakes. After considerable time, he eventually came to a decision which will be announced during assembly in the New Year. Pictured below are some of the entries on display.
