Congratulations to the school Choir for a wonderful performance on the night of our Art Show last week. They started their performance with a ‘Waka Waka’ dance then sang ‘I have a dream’, ‘Candyman’, ‘Put a little love in your heart’, ‘A million dreams’ and ‘One Song’. Special thanks to the soloists who were courageous enough to sing in front of the large audience in the Gym on their own, some of them doing so for the first time.
