Alderley Edge Festival

In our assembly this Friday we celebrated the many pupils who recently attended the Alderley Edge Festival to perform their talents. Our pupils were invited to the front to receive their certificates and trophies. Having just watched a number of pupils performing their pieces in music and drama, it was clear to all why they were all so successful!

Mrs Anderson, our VMT specialising in Speech and Drama shares:

“What a lovely time we had this year at the Alderley Edge Festival. We hadn’t had a festival for three years because of Covid and the children were very excited to be back performing in person. I was immensely proud of all those who took part with wonderful team spirit, friendliness and excellent behaviour from Terra Nova pupils. Children competed in classes ranging from acting and mime to verse speaking and prose reading.

A few were lucky enough to be placed, but in my eyes, all were winners on the day and I am immensely proud of every single performer. The children were all given very positive comments from the adjudicators and hopefully learned a few tips along the way.

Thank you to all the parents and grandparents for their support on the day and for the huge amount of practising and helping children to learn their lines at home; it is much appreciated.”
