Singing Competition and Singers' Concert
On Monday, we held our annual Singing Competition which saw a large number of entries and some very polished performances. Mrs. Crehan and Mrs. Hawkes had a tough job choosing winners from the different categories and, in some cases, had to choose joint winners.
Then, last night, pupils, staff, parents and friends gathered at All Saints Church for our spectacular Singers' Concert. There were performances from the Junior Choir, Senior Choir and Chamber Choir as well as from the Staff/Parent Choir and many solo performances by those children who had been named winners or runners-up in the Singing Competition. The evening was rounded off with a wonderful debut performance of 'St. Helen's College For Evermore!', our school song. As ever, the standard of performance was extremely high across the board, with lots of harmony singing and confident solo/small group performances. The children of St. Helen's College really do perform with confidence, articulation and style and it was a joy to listen to them all. Very well done to everybody involved!
Rainbow Nursery children performed a very moving assembly about Billy no Buzz, a bee without a buzz. Other insects were being horrible to Billy until they realised that he could do all the other things bees can do and that having no buzz didn't matter at all. The messages about friendship and inclusion came across strongly and we are sure that the children enjoyed performing it as much as the audience enjoyed watching!
3T pupils performed an assembly all about creation. They told us two of the stories of the creation of the world using beautiful paintings they had illustrated themselves and then showed us their own creations and talked about creativity in general. Well done 3T!
The children of 5W performed an assembly all about the Football World Cup in Brazil.
We hope you enjoy these photos of the three assemblies.
