Story

Make-A-Wish UK grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. Granting their wish provides seriously ill children with hope for the future, strength to cope and resilience to fight their condition. They’re given quality time away from the daily realities of living with their condition and given the chance to make magical memories they can treasure forever – whatever their future may hold. We want to transform the lives of 1,000 children this year by granting their One True Wish!

‘Carol for Yorkshire’ is an exciting new competition that was run by Greenhead College in collaboration with Musica Kirklees, which saw students from schools across the district compose their own Charity Christmas Carol.

Thom Meredith, Head of Musica Kirklees judged the competition, and in September 2018, Greenhead College's Louis Enright was announced as the winner with his composition 'What Would Jesus Say'.

The carol was performed by approximately 125 singers from the Greenhead College Choir and three Huddersfield based primary schools; Mount Pleasant Primary School, Spring Grove Primary School and Reinwood Junior School, and will also feature in the Greenhead College annual Christmas Carol Service.
