CONCERT TOUR BELGIUM – 10TH-15TH JULY

DATE POSTED: WEDNESDAY 20 JUL 2016

The Concert Tour to Belgium which took place between 10th and 15th July was very successful and appears to have been enjoyed by all the students who were from year groups 7-13.   Three concerts were given – at the Bobbejaanland Theme Park, Ypres Main Square and in Ostend – and the weather was kind which allowed us to enjoy all our planned activities.

A great time was had by all – and we were very proud of our students who were without exception excellent representatives of the school.

UNWANTED MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS

DATE POSTED: FRIDAY 13 MAY 2016

 

The Music Department wishes to invite any parents or friends who might have an unwanted and unused brass or woodwind instrument to consider donating this for use in classroom music lessons. The idea is to create a ‘Classroom Band’ with all students in a class playing and performing together. Any support you can give for this project will be very much appreciated.
