24 Terra Nova children from Years 2-8 took part in this year’s Bowdon Festival and I am so proud of each and every one of them. They performed in various classes from solo drama to poetry and prose reading. The commitment the children have shown in preparing for this event has been incredible and hundreds of lines have been learned and practised over the past few weeks!

The children looked incredibly smart, behaved beautifully and performed brilliantly. I was particularly impressed by the way the different age groups supported and encouraged one another. Thank you to all the parents for their wonderful support over the weekend and many thanks to Mr Pearson for coming to support us on the day too.
