Huge congratulations to all of the children, parents and staff who contributed to Cathedral Primary School’s International Evening on Thursday 23rd May. This sell-out evening was an opportunity to celebrate our wonderfully diverse school community through song, drama, dance, music, origami and poetry. The performances were astonishing and included Serbian dancing, African songs, a range of poetry, gymnastics, Azonto dancing as well as a variety of music played on the accordion, piano and recorder and an excellent performance from the Cathedral School Choir.
This year we had over 30 performances showcasing the talents of our school community including the very professional Cathedral School Parent’s Choir who involved the audience by encouraging everyone to join in. Vanessa Fenton, who has spent 14 years at the Royal Ballet Company, performed beautiful piece of ballet from Swan Lake and The Cathedral School Staff Choir started the evening off with Consider Yourself at Home and Alouette followed by a captivating performance from our Drumming Club. Drama club had the audience in fits of laughter while still being informative and highly entertaining. The performances finished with a rousing rendition of the National Anthem led by Io and her brother Abe who is 4 years old.
International Evening is also an opportunity to get together as a school community and taste a variety of foods from around the world, many thanks to all of the parents and staff who provided the food for the interval.
All the staff at Cathedral are incredibly proud of the children and believe that International Evening is an important way to showcase the quality of our arts provision. It is also a chance to demonstrate our commitment to developing International links and celebrate our own diverse community.
Finally we would once again like to thank all the performers, parents and staff who contributed to a superb evening.
We would love to read your reflections on International Evening 2013 – please feel free to comment on this post.
