On 22nd January, twenty-one dancers from three Trust schools (Elston Hall, Palmers Cross and Edward the Elder Primary Schools) competed in the regional heats of the Great Big Dance Off at Birmingham's Alexandra Theatre. Pupils performed their dance 'Faded', choreographed beautifully by dance teacher Miss Jones. Pupils worked extremely hard to perfect the dance and produced a stunning performance! Despite not getting a place in the final, staff and parents are extremely proud of how well pupils performed. More importantly, it has been wonderful to see friendships blossom between pupils from different Trust schools. Well done dancers - you were outstanding and did us all proud!

Elston Hall athletics team made it through to the Wolverhampton City Final!

At the Final the top 8 schools out of 77 schools across Wolverhampton competed together in various track and field events.
 
Out of the 8 teams Elston Hall finished in 3rd place, winning bronze medals. Well done to our athletics team and I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone that came to support us. This means that we will now represent our borough at the 2018 Black Country School Games Festival in June.

The first trip of 2018 and what an amazing trip it was! The choir were lucky enough-yet again-to attend Young Voices at the Genting Arena in Birmingham, where they joined 6,000 other children in an incredible performance for friends and family. The performances were brilliant and the atmosphere was truly electric! The children have been working hard since September to learn many new songs and it was lovely to see them enjoy the night and join in with other schools. A massive thank you to parents who were able to join us in the evening and joined in the fun and entertainment of the night. A truly magical and spectacular night had by all! Well done Choir!

All staff wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. 
We look forward to seeing the children safely return to school on Wednesday 3rd January.
Thank you for your continued support.

Pupils across Elston Hall added some festive cheer to local care homes for the elderly by making Christmas cards for residents. Each year group designed a card which were then delivered to homes across the city. We hope everyone in the Wolverhampton area enjoy a very Merry Christmas.

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.

Well done to all the children who impressed their teachers so much that they were chosen as 'Pupil of the Term'.
