Young Voices Concert in Birmingham Arena At the start of January, 36 children from years 2-6, from St Mary’s School Choir, led by staff member Cheryl Jenkinson, travelled to Birmingham to take part in a Young Voices concert at Birmingham Resorts World Arena.! They joined more than 6000 (!) other children to sing together- in the “Worlds Biggest School Choir” . Head teacher Samantha Gillman says - “So much time and effort went into all the planning but it was all worth it! The children absolutely loved it, and had the best day ever! Parents who came to watch also echoed how amazing it was. This will be one for the memory box that the children in the Choir will always remember! This opportunity was made possible by the volunteers, staff and parents giving up their time to attend and support the children. It is so great to be back doing these things again now we are through the pandemic.
