A wonderful Friday morning was had by all at Barrow Hills with the culmination of the House Music competition. Children had already gained plenty of points for their houses during the audition process. All houses performed a house song, three solos and a hymn to finish. Kean started proceedings with Dolly Parton’s “Nine to Five”, followed by solos by Fern (voice), Eleanor (flute), and Honor (voice). Murtough gave a rousing rendition of Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song”, followed by solos by Alice (cello), Sam (piano) and Frank (Ukulele). McCormack were last on with “The Nights” by Avicii, followed by solos by Monty (trombone), Emily (voice) and Julien (French horn).
Mr Sliwka (Director of Music at King Edward’s) gave us some wonderful feedback as our guest judge and announced the winners in reverse order: 3rd place went to Murtough with 216 points, 2nd was Kean with 224 points and McCormack topped the table with 234 points. We would like to extend our great thanks to Mr Sliwka for judging, to the house captains and to Mr Wardell for working so hard to make our House Music a fantastic success.
