School Choir

Highworth Music Day 2018

On Friday 9th February 2018 our very talented School Choir, along with Miss White, Mrs. Hobbs-Coulson and Mrs. Townsend attended The Highworth Music Day. We were one of 7 other schools to attend and take part. East Stour were the first to get up on the stage and we performed one of our favorite’s from the recent Young Voices Trip, “Africa”. After watching the other schools perform their songs we jointly sang a range of songs including  Three little birds, The lion sleeps tonight, Bare necessities.

We then had the delight of watching our very own Ella Darlington from Banjos class help out and play the glockenspiel.

Again this turned out to be another fantastic trip for our School Choir.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Young Voices 2018

On Monday 5th February, 30 very talented and committed members of our school choir went to the O2 to participate in the singing event “Young Voices 2018”. They sang a variety of amazing songs and medleys with actions and dancing. The children formed part of a choir that was just under 9000 voices strong, they sang along with Natalie Williams, who is one of the UK’s most endearing and popular soul/jazz singer songwriters and Alfie Sheard who at just 16 years of age is already a very talented acoustic guitar player and singer. We also enjoyed the dancing from Urban Strides, they are Street Dance Specialists, who are known for their motivational and dynamic approach. All of the children had a fantastic time and behaved brilliantly, they all showed mature and sensible attitudes in an extremely daunting and busy environment. Although very tired after the event they all walked very sensibly and safely through what was can only be described as an ocean of bustling humanity to the safety of our waiting coach. Thank you to the members of the choir that performed, to the parents & families for being so supportive, to Miss White, Mrs. Hobbs-Coulson and Mrs. Vincent for teaching the choir the songs, and to Mrs. Law and Mrs. Lilley for coming along to support too.

Sevington Mill Care Home.

On Wednesday 13th December the school Choir visited Sevington Mill Care Home where they sang a selection of Christmas songs to the residents, accompanied by Miss White on her guitar.

Despite the rainy walk there and back everybody had a great time, the children were well behaved and sang beautifully. Mrs. Law , Mrs. H-C and Mrs. Oliver also accompanied the children and a special thanks goes to our lovely PTA Mrs. Townsend who also popped along to support.

After singing and enjoying squash and biscuits the children and residents enjoyed spending time together and chatting with each other. A very rewarding morning indeed.

Willesborough Women’s Institute Annual Christmas Service.

On the evening of Thursday 14th December our School Choir were invited to sing the opening hymn at St Mary’s Church, this was as a special surprise for the Ladies of Willesborough Women’s Institute at their Annual Christmas Service.

The choir sang “Away in a Manger” supported by Mrs. Hobbs-Coulson and Miss White playing her guitar. Mrs. Law and Miss Newton also attended and commented on just how lovely the choir sang.

Moira from the WI very kindly provided little pots of sweets for the children.

Special thanks go to our School Choir who attended as it was a very busy day for them, having already walked to town and back for the Demelza Choir Day earlier in the afternoon.
