23/06/16 - Year 8 SSEP ends the year on a high note!
Newtownhamilton High School was the location for the final 2015/16 rehearsal of the SSEP Choir, with our Year 8 girls joining pupils from St. Joseph’s, St. Paul’s and Newry High Schools. Pupils have now travelled around all 4 schools over the course of the year, forming new friendships and making music along the way!
It’s been a really successful, busy year, with pupils having now learnt two brand new, challenging pieces - Rutter’s “The Lord Bless You and Keep You” and Pharrell Williams’ “Happy”. We’re almost ready for our first performance next year, hopefully in September.
Highlights this year, aside from all the crisps, tea and scones, have included our performance for ETI and the school principals, as well as our very own clergy; they couldn’t resist popping in on Friday morning whilst on their RE Inspection duties, when they heard the dulcet tones echo from the assembly hall on Friday! Hopefully they went away feeling “happy”!
Mrs Graham congratulates all the girls from Newtownhamilton High who have taken part this year. They have worked tremendously hard learning their parts, demonstrating their wonderful enthusiasm for singing. Well done!
