09/12/15 - Year 8 Girls - Hitting All The Right Notes!
Twelve Year 8 girls travelled to St Paul’s High School, Bessbrook this morning for the first rehearsal of our new joint choir. With 60 pupils in total from Newtownhamilton, St. Joseph’s, St. Paul’s and Newry High Schools, this is a choir which will continue to build the excellent relations between all schools, as part of the Shared Education Programme. It’s hoped this choir can foster new friendships, as well as nurture pupils’ love of music and performance.
The pupils spent the morning rehearsing Rutter’s “The Lord Bless You and Keep You.” All teachers involved were extremely impressed with the pupils’ musicality and their enthusiasm for this new venture. Mrs Graham was particularly impressed with the Newtownhamilton girls who sang the alto line for the very first time!
The choir will hopefully perform at numerous events in 2016 – so watch this space!
Well done this morning girls – you were certainly in fine tune!
