On Thursday 11th June our five year 6 pupils attended the Annual School Leavers Service at Durham Cathedral. They were among a number of other County Durham schools’ year 6 classes but by far the smallest! This certainly didn’t daunt them as they took the stage following the school banner procession to perform the first of 4 school showcases. They each spoke to introduce themselves, then Jane H and Joe S played one of their Grade 3 clarinet pieces accompanied by Mr Hassan. They played beautifully. They were then joined by the others; Claudia W, Adam B and Kadin F to sing a wonderful rendition of Matthew Prevett’s composition “I Believe”.
The service was a moving celebration of the children’s time at primary school. There were prayers and songs to wish them well in their new schools with the message,”Life is a journey and only you hold the map”
Another parent, Diane Horn, attending the service said, “The children did our school proud.” Indeed they did.
