It was lovely to see so many of you joining us for this year’s concerts. We do hope you enjoyed the fantastic singing, which included some very intricate part-singing from all year groups. There was a liberal smattering of Mr Bonner’s trademark mash ups with this year’s favourite being No Woman No Cry and Home – who knew that Bob Marley and Michael Buble would be such close musical neighbours? The whole school songs raised the roof with a full range of musical techniques on display, from the haunting dynamics of the Winter Wind to the sheer power of Only Remembered. We were surprised to receive a letter from Michael Morpurgo himself, expressing beautifully the need to remember the sacrifice of others and always choose to spread goodwill and friendship, especially at this time of year. The children, however, were the stars of the show singing beautifully and delivering their lines with confidence and clarity. Special mention, and a huge thank you, to Geoff Bonner, Debbie Brace, and Alan and Holly who designed the covers for the programme. What a talented bunch of staff and children we have here at Strand Juniors! All the money raised will go to Crisis at Christmas. Thank you to everyone.
