It is a small team who organise and prepare everything so I would like to say on behalf of the children, staff and parents an enormous, gigantic thank you! Well done to all the children who entered the talent contest. What shining bright stars you all are. Thank you to the adult choir for their performance.  They seem to be popping up all over the place! You can listen to them again on August 1st at a festival to be held on the Level.
