Bourne Westfield choir celebrated their recent success as the best school choir in the region at a special presentation on Monday.
The academy was delighted to welcome the President of the Rotary Club of Bourne Steve Buffery who presented them with a framed certificate to recognise their success not only as ‘Best Junior Choir’ but also ‘Best Choir of the Year’ in the Rotary’s District Young Musician Competition, the finals of which were held in Hinchingbrooke on March 2.
Sainsbury’s who sponsored the choir were also invited along to join in the celebrations.
Particular praise was reserved for Becky Beavis, Music Co-ordinator at the academy. With a vibrant and thoroughly entertaining performance the award winning choir gave a vocal demonstration of why they had achieved their success with a wonderful performance which delighted the guests.
Headteacher, Elaine Radley commented “We are so very proud of what these children have achieved this year. The award is a wonderful accolade and one which speaks volumes not only for the dedication and hard work of the children who performed but of the inspirational musical leadership provided by our Music Co-ordinator Rebecca Beavis ably assisted by teaching assistant Sue Folk and Kate Moore on piano! Their singing is just beautiful.
Steve Buffery, President of the Rotary Club of Bourne congratulated the choir on being awarded ‘Best Choir of the Day’ at the District 1070 Rotary Young Musician Competition and paid tribute to the dedication of the singers, teachers and other staff members, which it takes to achieve such results.
