SOIREES
On Monday 18 August senior students gathered at lunchtime and performed to an intimate and appreciative crowd.

Tuesday 19 August started with a bang as more than twenty children participated in our second Soiree/Matinee for the term. It is so wonderful to see performances of such variety, including dance. Milly Lusted and Allegra Holmes a Court both entertained us with wonderful dance routines along with a host of pianists, violinists, trumpeters, drummers and much more.

Performance can be scary but if you perform as much as you can it gets easier. Give it a go and see if it helps!
