St Michael in the Hamlet
April 2016 News
It was lovely to see so many parents, families, Governors and friends who joined us for our Spring Concert and Poetry Readings on Thursday, 10th March at St. Michael’s Church. The evening was a huge success and it was wonderful to also hear a variety of poetry readings and to celebrate the many musical talents of our boys and girls! Well done to Mrs Brackenridge, who co-ordinated the whole event. Thank you also to the many staff who gave up their time to support the pupils. A special thank you to Ms Hough, Mrs Langford and Mr Curtis for their musical talents and support!
Year 6 Dance
Thank you to all of our Year 6 Parents and families who came along to Sudley Theatre at IM Marsh on the evening of Friday 11th March to support the Year 6 pupils for their dance extravaganza with Liverpool John Moores Dance Students. The show was the culmination of a 6-week dance programme involving all of our Year 6 Pupils, the Dance Students from Liverpool John Moores University and Miss Bennett, Ms Millican and Mr Backstrom. Their show-case performance was amazing and we were incredibly proud of all of our Year 6 boys and girls!
