The Key Stage 3 Concert, which involved students from Years 7-9, took place on Friday, 5th February and was a great success. The Concert featured the Year 8 Band, Year 9 Band, Choir, Electronic Ensemble, Junk Percussion Group and a number of excellent solo performers from Years 7, 8 and 9. This was also the debut performance for the new Year 7 Band and also for the Independent Band, which a group of Year 7 students had formed themselves. A number of students from Year 7 accompanied the choir on ukuleles and Year 8 students demonstrated their curriculum work on samba drums. Congratulations to all the students who participated and performed so well. Thanks to the staff involved in this event and to FEGS who provided the interval refreshments.

The Concert Tour to the Costa Brava in Spain which took place between 12th and 18th July was very successful and seems to have been enjoyed by all the students who were from all year groups. Three concerts were given – two outside and one inside the theatre at the Figueres Festival – at which all the students were able to perform. The sun shone and the sea was warm!

The Music Soiree was held on Friday 3rd July and this year the theme was “The 1960s”. Nearly all our bands and ensembles performed at this event which was very much enjoyed by the parents and friends who attended. A cheque for £625 – raised by brass and woodwind students who performed in Enfield Town last Christmas – was given to Mr Hill from the North London Hospice and a number of awards for musical achievement and commitment were presented to students during the course of the evening. Thanks to all the students who performed so well – and those who dressed in 1960s costumes – and to the staff and parents who supported them. Thanks also to Yulin Li for the photos – to view these.

Day two brought a surprisingly bright and bushy tailed bunch at breakfast. A continental breakfast was the first reward of the day, fruit, cold meats, cereals and breads.
We travelled by coach to Barcelona with our tour guide, Sue, telling us about the history and relevance of certain monuments along the way. We stopped at the 1992 Olympic venue and had a look at the vast stadium where the track and field events took place all those years ago… the boys were asking who the athletes of the day were. I guessed at Llinford Christie(?). A guessing game about the teacher’s ages followed with some very inaccurate guesses!
After the pain of the students guesses faded from our short term memories we travel by coach to the top of Montjuic Park to take in the beautiful panoramic views of Barcelona city and port before heading into the city centre for the students to spend some free time (and euros) on Las Ramblas – a pedestrianised shopping street. What to eat for lunch? The students decided to try that famous traditional Spanish restaurant with the golden arches serving Mcmeals while the teachers eat tapas.
As the weather was so hot, the prices on Las Ramblas so expensive and the students feeling tired, we headed back to Calella after two hours to enjoy some more beach time.
We returned to the hotel for our evening meal before lugging the equipment to the local town square and playing our first concert of the tour. It went quite well and the audience enjoyed our range of line-ups and where suitably impressed. As I write the students are in their rooms ‘settling down for sleep’ before we head to the theme park and play a concert in Figueres tomorrow evening.
Bring it on!
