Well Done Primrose Hill!

Well we didn't win but the kids did us proud 😊 Our choir was formed specially for this competition and they were right up there with the best of well established school choirs in the United Diocese. Not only that but our choir entered in the more challenging Part-Singing Competition and their harmonies were beautiful. Special thanks to their director Liz Butler (Principal) and their accompanist Laura O'Neill. The pictures show the choir performing their songs: My Lord What a morning (trad) & El Condo Pasa (Simon & Garfunkel) and the choir being presented with their certificate from the Archbishop. A great evening and a very proud school and parish community. 😊
