Diocesan Singing Programme ........... Calling all KS2 pupils.........
Leeds Catholic Diocesan Singing Programme and singing in school
In order to introduce encourage and enhance choral singing, all schools in the BKCAT, take part in the Diocesan Singing programme, led by music experts from the Diocese.
Children in Year 5 & 6 develop their vocal skills by singing a mixture of both secular and sacred music. Pupils in KS2 also have the opportunity to experience singing alongside other pupils in the regional Young Voices event that takes place annually in Sheffield in January. Pupils in KS2 are invited to join the school choir that meet weekly after school led by Mr Molyneux and Mrs Willis and allows them to perform in church and community events throughout the school year. Children are also invited to join the BKCAT choirs, which bring together singers from across the trust; the choirs take part in special acts of worship at churches in the area.
If your child is interested in joining the Diocesan Singing Programme please inform the school office or Mr Molyneux
Exciting Enrichment activities for our pupils to engage with and enjoy ..........
We have been very fortunate to secure funding through The National Lottery Community Fund to enable us to buy in the outside services of Forest Schools and Elite Coaching to deliver enrichment opportunities for our pupils to participate in and learn new and exciting skills outside of the usual classroom environment. As part of this exciting new initiative, our pupils can experience outdoor learning with excellent provision from Forest Schools whether it be learning how to build a den or be artistic and creative with nature resources we have around school! Opportunities for acquiring new skills also extend to the development and enhancement of functional fitness skills delivered in a fun and exciting manner by the experienced coaches from Elite Coaching Team! The outdoor learning experiences are proving to be a huge success amongst our pupils as they embrace these fun, exciting new opportunities to enhance their learning, development and growing experiences along their journey at St Austin's! Please take a look at our gallery below .......
