Headmaster's Bulletin 24th May 2019
NSB musicians were delighted to support St. Christopher’s Church Of England War Memorial Home this week in a moving ceremony to commemorate the D-Day landings. Our musicians played a variety of pieces during the service, including the American National Anthem with Mr Jeff Vick, First Secretary and Consul of the United States of America in attendance.
I am delighted to report that the recent Northampton Eisteddfod Festival for the Performing Arts 2019 has been a resounding success for many of our talented thespians with the following students already securing high awards:
Duologues: Year 11+
Rudy Gardner and Isaac McLean - 1st place for their GCSE duologue of CAR by Chris O'Connell
Naia Elliott-Spence and Joseph McGoff - 2nd place for their MK Festival duologue of That Face by Polly Stenham
Monologues: Year 11+
Rudy Gardner - 2nd place for his GCSE monologue of CAR by Chris O'Connell
Joseph McGoff - 3rd place for his monologue taken from Angels of America
Duologues: Year 7/8
Eden Wiles and William Hunter - 3rd place for Blood Brothers by Willy Russell
Monologues: Year 7/8
Teejah Hiles - 3rd place for The Play that Goes Wrong
The Y10 footballers fought valiantly in the National Cup football final despite playing with ten players for the majority of the match before eventually succumbing to Thomas Telford School. I was also pleased to meet with Lucy Reynolds from Y13 who managed an exceptional sixth place in the 2019 World Irish Dance Championships, building brilliantly on her 11th place last year. We hope to see Lucy in action at our forthcoming Expressive Arts Awards Evening.
I hope the students have a productive break and we look forward to seeing them back safely on Monday June 3rd.
