Festival Success 2015

Congratulations to all the children who took part in the Verse Speaking and Bible Reading Festival. This year P1 to P6 were represented as P7 were involved in their trip and play rehearsals. We believe it is an achievement to stand on a stage and perform in front of a crowd of strangers and we consider all participants to have represented their school brilliantly. It is a real confidence boost to participate and an added bonus that so many children either came away with a prize or won their class- often of 30 or more competitors.

Special mention must go to P4 and P5 who took 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each of their classes. Well done to them and all the parents who heard their poems over and over and over. Mrs Stocker and Mrs Wilson.
