Junior School

by Mrs Simone Whalley

Opportunities for public speaking and performing on stage have been the highlight for me during the last couple of weeks. The Itinerant Music Assembly, The Music and Movement Concert at the Piano, and the Drama Performance in our Junior Hall are all great examples of the incredible talent we have all enjoyed celebrating within our Junior School. All the very best to the Junior School children who are performing in tonight's High Performers Concert.
