Monday sees Choir for both KS3 and our KS4 and 5 pupils, thanks to @NMPATrust. After School we have a Symphony Orchestra rehearsal. The first one with everyone (socially distanced) since March 2020!!
The end of our first week back (has it really only been 4 days???) Fab rehearsals with Big Bands 1, 2 and 3, Wind Band, Sax Pistols and Metalworks. As well as a full week of instrumental teaching, curriculum lessons and Year 12 Parents Evening..normality is slowly returning!!
Lovely to hear Big Band 2 rehearsing in full this afternoon. This collective music making has been so badly missed by staff and pupils. Tomorrow sees Metalworks (Y7 - 9) and Wind Band. Exciting times - perhaps an outdoor concert before the end of the academic year??
