Keeping in Touch20 Apr 2018
On Friday evening some of our Year 8, 9, 10 & 11 musicians provided music as part of the ‘Keeping in Touch’ event in partnership with The Manor House care home and St Mary’s Parish Church.
The evening began with Mr Dearsley encouraging all of the attendees to sing Gene Autry’s song ‘Your the only star in my blue heaven’. Martha Rokk (Y8) sang ‘A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square’, Elliot Custance (Y8) sang ‘Love walked in’, Amelia Edmunds(Y11) sang ‘My ship’, Emily Kelly (Y10) sang ‘Losing my mind’. We then heard two instrumental items, Matthew Forster played the ‘Waltz in A’ on the Piano, and Beth Stirling played ‘Latin Flute’ on the Flute. Emily Kelly sang for again, this time performing ‘I could have danced all night’. The event ended with everyone, including the audience, singing ‘Two sleepy people’ with Alex Scopes on snare drum, and Dominic Chan playing a solo on the Trumpet.
The Art Exhibition at St Mary’s Parish Church which will run from April 20th – 3rd May includes artwork created by residents from The Manor House care home along with pupils from the school inspired by communication from the 1940s to the present day, including Art from students at Barney which included marvellous banners, and postcards, which were available as part of a silent auction. This was part of an initiative to bring older and younger generations together in order to communicate through the Creative Arts.
