Grandparents Day and Musical May

On Tuesday 22nd May, pupils and staff at Northbourne Park School were delighted to welcome over 50 grandparents to their annual Grandparents Day.  This is such a special day in the school calendar as it gives grandparents a glimpse into the children’s school-life and a wonderful opportunity for the whole family to share in the fabulous Northbourne Park spirit. 

Pupils in all year groups, from Nursery to Year 8, were very proud to take their grandparents on their own individual tours of the school and introduce them to their teachers, classmates and friends. There was even grandparents playing cricket with their grandchildren in the Pre-Prep.

Following some light refreshments, grandparents and parents were entertained during the afternoon with a lively Summer Concert, where pupils from across the school performed a variety of musical performances. 

Years 3 and 4 sang Arabian Nights, giving a great performance and glimpse into their forthcoming musical production of Aladdin, while Years 5 and 6 gave a wonderful rendition of Circle of Life from the well-acclaimed Lion King

Senior pupils in Years 7 and 8 entertained the audience playing their ukuleles.  They then sang a beautiful version of Hallelujah and were soon joined by the rest of the school and the audience.

Talented Year 6 girls performed Yellow by Cold Play accompanied by a Year 3 pupil on the drums.

All the pupil-led ensembles performed proved very popular with the audience. 

The afternoon ended with the audience enjoying a moving rendition of Moana, sung by the whole school, and the school band performing four pieces including Wallace and Gromit and Scooby Doo.

 

Sebastian Rees, Headmaster said:  "This was a very special afternoon.  It is always lovely to catch up with the grandparents and well done to all our talented musicians who performed so wonderfully in the concert."
