Spring Music Festival - Wednesday 20th March 2019

       On Wednesday evening, children from the Year 5 & 6 choir took part in the Spring Music Festival at Harpenden Public Halls. This year's theme was “Stage and Screen” and the children enjoyed performing a range of songs from hit Musicals.

It was a wonderful evening and we are very proud of all the children who took part. Thank you to Mrs Timms and Mrs Whitwam for their input and hard work.
