2019 School Songwriting Competition
Over 300 children performed from 10 different schools to a packed house at the White Rock Theatre.
For the first time, we introduced an Oscar-style awards ceremony with lots of nominees and categories as a way of appreciating effort. It created a lot of extra work for the judges and compere but was well worth it as the children raised the roof with lots of cheers. “My children were still buzzing the next day.”
Thank you to all the schools who performed this year and all the hard work put in by teachers and pupils. It was amazing, with some fantastic varied songs around the theme of ‘Summer’. And there were some incredible performances, with dancing, props, instrument playing. It was fantastic.
