'One Voice' Concert
The school choir took part in the 'One Voice' concert held at New York Stadium on 5th July. They were part of a choir of 1900 children from schools across Rotherham. The children all worked very hard to learn the songs for the concert, which was the last event of this year's Children's Festival. The sun shone, and a fantastic time was had by all!
