Winter Concert 2014

Last night (Tuesday 16 December) was simply a breath-taking array of musical, dance and performance talent. Students across all years took part in our annual winter concert in order to entertain family, friends and staff in our brand new assembly hall.

Every single act was incredible – everyone from the school choir and boys choir, to the soloists, to those playing a range of instruments (piano, ukulele, saxophone, guitar – to mention just a few), to the fantastic drama and dance students.

Songs included: ‘Kumala Vista’; ‘Merry Christmas Darling’; ‘Thank you’; ‘Coventry Carol’; ‘Silent Night’; ‘Christmas Time is Here’; ‘In the Mood’; ‘Pure Imagination’; ‘Peace on Earth/Drummer Boy’; ‘Christmas’; ‘Skinny Love’; ‘I Get Around’; ‘In the Arms of The Angel’; ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’; ‘Do you Want to Build a Snowman?’; ‘In Dulci Jubilo’; ‘This is the Moment’; ‘Something About December’; and the finale – ‘Jingle Bell Rock’.

There was also a special debut of ‘Christmas is on its Way’, which was written and performed by Lily and Ellen. The comedy genius of ‘Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer’ was performed by our drama students and included a two-headed raindeer, Mr Blond (not to be confused with Mr Bond 007), a wolf and an angel, had the audience burst into laughter. And RPA dance students performed to ‘Yours’.

One parent commented to our Headteacher: “Thank you for yet another incredible RPA evening! Seeing both our daughters shine under your spotlights is an amazing feeling for any parent. Many thanks to you and your wonderful team for making that happen.”

And as always our fantastic team of staff who love to get stuck in – singing as a staff choir and supporting the student choir. Not to mention our RS teacher – Mr Martin – on the drums!

Ms Kirby, Headteacher, commented: “Outstanding! Such confidence, talent and commitment, both students and staff – what a fantastically magical night.”

With special thanks to Ms Fairbairn and Ms Quinn Larkin for all their hard work, the drama department, the PTA for the drinks and nibbles, Ms Eastham for making the hall look stunning with her decorations, Mr Martin for drumming and, most importantly, thank you to our incredible students who really were exceptional.
