Well done to all of our students who performed yesterday. Live performances can be nerve-wracking, but all our students excelled and showed confidence and skill in their craft. 

Thank you to our music teachers: Mrs Warrington, Mr Urbanski, Mrs Garside and Mrs Turner, who helped to organise this event and supported students in their preparation. Finally, a big thank you to all parents and carers who joined us, it was lovely to see you all!
