Children in choir have the exciting opportunity to participate in Young Voices, a large-scale singing event, bringing together children from hundreds of schools to sing together in a large venue such as an arena. Children’s love and passion for singing and performing will be fostered in choir as children develop and enhance their singing and performance skills.

  • Ukulele club takes place 3:15- 4:15pm on a Wednesday in the Room for the Arts- children have the opportunity to learn to play the ukulele and explore a wide variety of pieces of music, both ukulele alone and singing too. Children will play as a group and will be able to share their knowledge and skills with each other as they learn together. At ukulele club children will learn to read chord boxes and play the corresponding chords, and will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to be able to access a wide range of resources to continue enjoying playing the ukulele outside of school if they do so wish.
