A group of children, from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 along with Miss O’Boyle and Miss Foster, took part in a concert with the African Children’s Choir on Wednesday 7th June at Stratford Arts Centre.
The African Children’s Choir is composed of African children, aged 7 to 10 years old. Many have lost one or both parents through the devastation of war, famine and disease. They represent all the children of a continent and they demonstrate the potential of African children to become strong leaders for a better future in their land.
The primary goal of the Choir is to raise awareness of the need of destitute and orphaned children in Africa and to raise funds for continued development and support of the African Children’s Choir Programmes. The Choir’s international educational endeavour provides unique training for the children. Once Choir members have completed a concert tour, they will return to their homelands with the tools necessary for bettering their future.
They all sang their hearts out and did the school proud not only with their singing but with their behaviour too.
Well done to everyone who took part !
