Diversity Event

November 2017

As a Trust, we are dedicated to working together and promoting all of our achievements.

Tewnty-one talented children from Elston Hall, Palmers Cross and Edward the Elder Primary schools joined together to perform at the annual Schools Diversity Celebrations. Boys, girls and staff from all three schools spent the weeks leading up to the event working hard to create a stunning dance. This year the  showcase celebrated its 30th year and Elston Hall MAT performed alongside 20 other Wolverhampton Schools.

This years theme was One World , One People, One Voice and our children performed a breathtaking dance entitled Faded.

We are so proud of their fantastic performance!

Young Voices 2017

January 2017

On Tuesday 24th January the Elston Hall Choir attended the 'Young Voices' concert at the Genting Arena in Birmingham. There had been a lot of practise of songs and dance moves prior to the event so the children were well prepared and excited for the day! The day consisted of a rehearsal with a world-famous conductor, which was followed by the real concert that kicked off around 7.30pm when parents had joined them at the arena. The choir performed a number of songs from a variety of cultures accompanied by ultra-cool dance moves, they also got to enjoy performances from famous beat boxers and singers. After all the hard work, the children did us proud and gave an 'Outstanding' performance. Despite it being a long day, the children all thoroughly enjoyed it and thrived in the atmosphere. We would also like to thank all parents that attended and came to support their children and the school - it was lovely to hear such good feedback and that parents had a fantastic time too. Both children and parents had an absolute blast and we can't wait to go back again next year!

Now in its 29th year, the annual Schools Diversity Celebration took place at the Civic Hall on Wednesday 2 November; hundreds of pupils from 19 schools took to the stage to perform dance, drama and music in front of a specially invited audience. The celebration, entitled Our City of Light,  showcased the range of cultures, languages, traditions and faiths found in Wolverhampton. It was a  tremendous opportunity for pupils from Elston Hall to take to the stage in the famous surroundings of the Civic Hall, which has welcomed some of the biggest names in show business over the years, and demonstrate to their family and friends just what they can do.
