BYMT Music Lessons

We are lucky to have a range of Bromley Youth Music Trust (BYMT) peripatetic teachers at our school who teach piano, violin, drums, flute, saxophone, clarinet, double bass, guitar, brass and cello. After half term, BYMT will be demonstrating and performing in assemblies and talking all about the benefits of learning a musical instrument. If you would like your child to learn a musical instrument, the quickest and easiest way to apply is directly through the BYMT website Violin, flute, saxophone and clarinet currently have spaces and do not have a waiting list.

Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Fun! The children in Year 4 staged an extremely successful production of Treasure Island in the last week of the Spring term.

Young Voices Concert at the 02

On Monday 27th January a group of 86 children from Years 5 and 6 travelled to the O2 Arena for the Young Voices concert. After months of practising, the children finally got the opportunity to be part of a massed choir of 7,500 children performing a wide range of songs, from One Direction through to old English folk songs via Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Hallelujah Chorus!

The Choir at the O2

On Wednesday 30th January 75 children from Years 5 and 6 choir performed at the 02 in the Young Voices concert series. This was the third time Balgowan was involved and Mrs. Brook was very proud of the children. Thank you to all the staff who accompanied and made it possible for so many to be involved.
