Choral Festival showcases musical talents of local school children
This term, St George's Junior School welcomed 60 children from local schools Cardinal Newman and St Charles Borromeo to the inaugural Key Stage 1 Choral Festival, for an afternoon of singing.
Pupils from each school stood together and went through a number of vocal warm up exercises before they could truly begin. With lots of laughter and funny noises coming out of their mouths, the children were ready to sing!
They sang through popular nursery rhymes adding twists and different tempos as they went, St George's pupils taught their counterparts some new songs and actions they had learnt in their lessons and they even performed one of the songs from Disney's 'Moana', that was very well-received by the children.
After a quick drink, everyone gathered together once more to perform for Year 1 pupils from St George's. There was an air of excitement around the room as the choir started making their way through the nursery rhymes and when the first notes from the 'Moana' song were heard, Year 1 needed little encouragement to start singing along and cap off a wonderful afternoon shared between the three schools.
Events like this are a great way for our Junior School pupils to integrate with schools in the local community, it gives them the opportunity to help others and share their skills, always linking back to the Josephite values that are at the heart of everything we do at St George's.
