Celebration of the Arts

29th January 2014

Students of all ages were invited to take part in the first House Music Competition which was organised by the Y13 music group as part of their BTEC Level 3 studies the students. Students competed in three categories: vocal, keyboard and instrumental and all performers received a certificate and earned points for their house. The successful performers in each category represented their House in the finals which were staged at the ‘Celebration of the Arts’ event attended by proud parents and friends. The arts event also showcased the excellent artwork of students at the academy and featured the Year 10 BTEC Music group performing as part of their assessment. Added to the performances of the house music competition winners there were also inspiring performances by De Warenne Samba Club, the Key Stage 3 Drama Club (who wrote and performed their own account of ‘A Traditional Christmas’), the Ukulele Club and the Academy Choir. The thoroughly enjoyable evening was brought to a festive end by the Y13 music group leading the audience in ‘Jingle Bell Rock’.
