'Because We're Happy'
Our friendships with pupils at the Humanitas School in Ayensuako, Ghana continue to grow and develop. The pupils at Humanitas School have been helping to enrich our curriculum through joint learning projects, whilst our fundraising has supported them in developing their school.
Both schools have had great fun recently creating our own versions of the Happy Video to share with each other.
The videos can be seen by clicking on the images below.
The first link is St Bernadette's full video.
The second link, via a private Youtube channel, is an amalgamation of St Bernadette's pupils and the Humanitas School pupils - ENJOY!!!
On Monday 2nd December Year 5/6 choir went to sing at our local Age UK Dementia Club. We sang a range of Christmas Carols and songs which were enjoyed by all. Well done to the choir!
Our Summer Concert
At our Summer Concert, families and members of staff were treated to an evening of music by children at our school. We enjoyed performances on the violin, piano and guitar. All the children performed brilliantly; it was such a delight to hear their talents and it certainly brightened up a very rainy evening. Many thanks to Paolo from St. Paul’s who played at the beginning of the concert; it was inspiring to hear how far musical talent can develop in just a few years. We look forward to more music-making opportunities soon.
Our Choir Visit the Local Care Home
In June we walked to our local care home where the children sang to the residents. They performed pieces from the recent ‘Catholic Schools Music Extravaganza’ (see below) along with some hymns and traditional well known songs. The children enjoyed talking with ladies and gentleman at the care home and found out some interesting stories. They even got some song requests for our next visit!
“Thank you so much for coming to visit us this morning, such beautiful singing, the children are a credit to your school, so well behaved and polite. It was good to see both generations conversing”. Pamela Bourke, Well-Being Manager, Milton Court Care Home.
