On Friday 23rd February 2018, Barrowby CE Primary School competed and were again, ‘victorious’ in the annual ‘Colsterworth Performing Arts Festival,' at the Meres Leisure Centre.
This year, we took 111 children from Years 1 to Year 6. Our school competed in a range of classes, including: Key Stage 1 Vocal Ensemble; Key Stage 2 Vocal Ensemble; Y3 & 4 Choral Speaking; Y5 & 6 Choral Speaking; Y5 & 6 Recorders; Y5 & 6 Educational Dance; Instrumental Ensemble (without vocals) and a new category the Y5 & 6 Group Acting.
Our children were a real credit to our school and performed with skill, enthusiasm and professionalism, recognised by many of the audience, competitors and the adjudicators.
We are delighted to announce:
1st Place (Overall ‘Best Recorder Group’)
At the end of the Festival, our school was commended for its performances, by the adjudicator and awarded the ‘Growler Shield’ for the best overall school performances. This is the 5th consecutive year, our school has been awarded this honour and truly reflects the schools continued drive and ambition for all its pupils, within the Performing Arts.
We would like to congratulate all children who participated in the festival, who performed with real enthusiasm, dedication and skill.
At Barrowby CE Primary School, we take a real pride in all that we do-supporting each and every child in ‘striving for excellence’ and continue to demonstrate a real commitment to the Arts. This is reflected in the range of opportunities we continue to provide our children in both Visual and Performing Arts and are thrilled that our school continues to be recognised for its high quality provision, as seen through the ‘stunning’ performances, of our pupils, at this year’s festival.
We are lucky that at our school the Arts has the support of all members of staff who work together, so that the children can continually demonstrate, ‘If we try…we can fly!’
A special thank you to our school staff and community:
In addition, a special thank you to all our parents for their continued support. It was lovely to see so many parents who gave their time freely to support their child/ren, cheering and applauding their efforts.
What an amazing effort from one and all, thank you. You are all 'shining stars!'
