Two Elston Hall pupils won a city-wide competition to design a Christmas card for our MP.
MP Emma Reynolds stopped off at Elston Hall to present the girls with their prizes.
Their designs beat competition from hundreds of pupils from 11 schools across the city. Isabelle was the overall winner and her entry has been printed on 1,000 cards sent out by the MP. She was presented with her entry in a frame and cinema tickets as the prize. Ellie was a runner up and received book tokens. Both were also given a certificate.
The traditional, annual event of our Christmas Carol Concert with St James was once again upon us and Year 4 did not disappoint! With a little help from the school choir, they sang their way beautifully throughout the event, with wonderful readings and prayers from both the children and our guests from St James. A lovely time was had by all who joined us, and we thank Year 4 and the Choir for yet another fantastic, flawless performance!
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!
Years 2 and 6 put on a fantastic Harvest assembly. Thank you to everyone who kindly donated items. The Little Brothers of Good Shepherd do valuable work with the city’s homeless people and the donations were very gratefully received.
Alison Donald, an Education Officer, from the Dogs Trust came to speak to the children about responsibility and safety around dogs.
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!
