Dance Workshops and Competition

We had a fabulous day at the Torfaen Primary School Dance Competition this week. Our children all enjoyed the workshops organised and joined in with Hip Hop, contemporary dance and ballet. Most of our children hadn't tried contemporary or ballet previously so it was a great experience for them to try new styles. In facet, some of them enjoyed the contemporary dance more than their usual dance style of Hip Hop. Our solo performer, Dylan, wowed the judges and came second in the solo dance performance making us all exceptionally proud. All the children really enjoyed watching other dancers from different schools, and the different range of dance styles being performed. Well done to all who took part and a big thank you to Torfaen Sport's Development for the invitation. We are looking forward to our next dance performance in May!

Choir Performance at Crownbridge School

A HUGE thumbs up for our choir who sang superbly last night at the performance at Crownbridge School along with a BIG thank you to Mrs Cox, Mrs Cotterell and Mrs Middle for all their wonderful work with our school choir! Making us proud yet again!

We've done it, we're now a Green School!

We've worked exceptionally hard to achieve this status. Congratulations to us all!
