Another successful festival!

A huge thank you to our Adjudicator, Jill O’Hare for her positive and thoughtful adjudications.  Thank you to all the teachers and competitors for all their hard work – we couldn’t have a festival without you!  We hope you have found the experience useful and that the performances you have participated in and watched have helped your learning.  Thank you to all the audience members and parents and grandparents.  And – of course – a huge thank you to our stewards and the organisers who work so hard to make sure the festival is a success.

Remember – the festival needs you – so a huge thank you to all our future volunteers and committee members, because without you the festival cannot continue!

Photos will follow – watch this space!
