"Music helps me relax...it can also make me happy" - Yr3 pupil
There were solo performances where such young learners stepped onto a lit stage and took unbelievable risks with such fearless confidence - this can only mean that they are so comfortable in their own abilities and each other and long may this last. There were duets, group ensembles, choirs and so much more where you could see the connections between musicians and friends. What a wonderful evening - I count myself very lucky and thankful to have enjoyed a very genuine pause in my hectic day!
"Yes...I do wish I had taken my opportunity to learn a musical instrument at school" - Most Middle School Parents!
Thank you to all of the staff who brought this together at the end of a long winter of planning, teaching and inspiring - few schools are lucky enough to have staff who take such pride and joy in supporting your children and each other - Mr Birdi, our Network Manager, chose to stay and ensure that the lighting programming worked - even though he left me in the dark! Mr Ford, please thank your team for inspiring our musicians to strive to be better than they were yesterday - and thank you for being you! Here are a few moments that were captured on the night...
