Please bring your big, strong, confident voices to school tomorrow because we are going to be singing for BBC Music Day. Miss Rusbatch will be leading some songs, with actions, and music assemblies will be filmed. Footage of the best songs will be sent to the BBC, and also added to the school's music website and YouTube channel. La la la la laaaaaaaaaa....!
Music Club Sign-Up has now closed. The next opportunity to sign-up for Mega Choir and Orchestra will be in January 2019. Super Choir does not operate during the spring term due to Battle of the Bands. It will re-commence for the summer term 2019.
Upcoming events for existing members of Mega Choir and Super Choir include the Remembrance service on Friday 9th November and Christmas Concerts at the Brighton Centre, St. Martin's Church and within school time. Orchestra will also have Christmas concerts within school in December.
If you would like to sign your child up for a music club this term, please do so by the end of the day tomorrow - Friday 21st September.
