Children from St Barnabas’, St Luke and St Philip’s and Baines Endowed Primary Schools – all Church of England Academies within the Cidari family came together last Tuesday to launch Cidari Education’s Christmas Celebrations at the beautiful Whalley Abbey.

The children were joined by Headteachers, staff, governors and parents who were treated to a wonderful evening of music and mince pies.

Each academy sang a song from their Christmas repertoire and the evening ended with the combined choirs singing ‘Away in a Manger’ and ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas.’

Liz Agbettoh, CEO pictured here thanked parents for their support and said that “Children learn best when there is a ‘real’ partnership between parents, teachers and children”.
One parent said, “Since my child’s school became an academy, there is much more going on and I now feel I am part of the school."
