Belfairs students hit the right notes

By Times Reporter in Community News

THIRTY musical youngsters from Belfairs Academy hit the right notes this Easter holiday by performing in Holland.

The Belfairs Academy Choir and Concert Band swapped their pencil cases for suitcases, crossing the Channel to make guest appearances at the Muziekpaviljoen in Zandvoort and the Markt in Delft.

Between the performances, the students learnt about windmills at Zaanse Schans, enjoyed a day out at Duinrell visiting a theme park, took part in a quiz and even got to sample some impressive pancakes. They also went a miniature park at Madurodam in The Hague district.

Mrs Kelly Hall, subject leader for music at Belfairs Academy, said: “The trip was great and the students were a credit to the Academy. Highlights included the concert in Delft market square where our music was well received against the backdrop of the impressive architecture and the traditional cafes in the hot sunshine, the day in Duinrell and the sunset at the Noordwijk beach.”

Mrs Hall added: “Our soloists Max Starkey, Scarlett Taylor and Lyndsey Hall were wonderful and we were all exceptionally well looked after by our hosts at the Hotel de Ossewa.”

The students, all aged between 11 and 16 years old, performed popular songs from films and musicals on the tour.
