A spring concert and Easter tea were among the celebrations to mark the end of term and the coming of Easter at TH. Last Friday afternoon the school community gathered for the annual Easter tea. There was an outdoor Easter trail in the woods, complete with Easter bunnies; an Easter basket raffle and tasty treats. There was also a colourful and imaginative display of Easter cakes made by the Senior pupils who had entered the Easter cake competition. Particular thanks go to the catering team and the PSS who helped to make the afternoon such a success.
On Thursday 20th March the Music Department held their annual Spring Concert where the amazing musical talents of pupils from Year Four through to the Upper Sixth were very much appreciated by a capacity audience. The Wind Band performed a mix of pieces including ‘Send in the Clowns’ and music from ‘Chicken Run’ whilst the Percussion Ensemble produced a very effective ‘Zulu Welcome’. The Senior Choir gave sensitive performances of three pop ballads including ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’; Year 6 girls sang charmingly and beautifully in French, whilst Soprano Issy Atkinson bought a touch of class and sophistication to the occasion with Schubert’s ‘Rastlose Liebe’. Polly Bartlett’s highly technical and athletic rendition of Czardas left the Junior pupils stunned as to what could be achieved on the recorder. One of the most popular and powerful items was the orchestra ending the concert with music from ‘Lord of the Dance’ but, in many people’s eyes it was Junior Choir who stole the show, singing rather a bold song about liquid manure entitled ‘Fling it Here, Fling it There’! Grateful thanks go to all pupils and staff involved in this event.
