Competition Time !!
Due to last week’s poetry week being such a success with the staff and children, we have decided to run a poetry competition. This will involve the children writing their own poem to describe our school. How they present their poem is up to them, however, there is an acrostic template for them to use if they wish. All entries will need to be submitted by Friday 20th October 2017 and a prize will be awarded to the winner.
Thank you and good luck,

On July 1st in Heaton Park, Manchester, there will be a concert to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. One choir from each of the nations of the United Kingdom has been chosen to form a National Children's Choir and we are delighted that Holy Trinity School Choir has been selected to represent England. This is an immense privilege and we are sure that it will be a memorable experience for all the children who are involved.
The choir also won the Dr. Eileen Bentley Choral Shield for the most outstanding choral performance at the Oldham Schools' Music Festival on Friday 17th June. The adjudicator praised the choir for its confident part singing, excellent diction, wide dynamic range, variety of timbres and exceptional musicality. The award was shared with St. Matthew's School, Chadderton. This was an exceptional achievement as the festival was held over five full days and a large number of choirs competed for the shield. Well done to all the children for their hard work and excellent performance.
We would like to thank Mrs Williams, Mr Jackson and the School Choir for all the hard work they put in preparing for the Battle of the Somme Centenary Concert in Heaton Park last Friday.
Being one of only two schools representing England in a specially formed National Children's Choir, the children did a fantastic job of marking the sombre occasion and representing school at such a highly prestigious event.
