We enjoyed the energy and excitement of being part of last night’s concert! Excellent singing from all of the children! Thank you for the music; this will live long in our memories.🎶 🌟Sincere thanks to the organisers and to everyone who supported the children to participate.

Looking forward to Earth Hour on Saturday 30th March, are you switching off? #earthhour https://t.co/2gbXn8dhyl
