WELCOME to our 6th annual songwriting competition, which is online again this year due to Covid-19.
We love this inspiring competition where everyone who participates is a winner – improving their core learning and skills, working towards a goal, building friendships along the way. Most importantly, all entrants receive certificates with personalised feedback.
The competition is open to all Hastings schools, collaborators and individuals.
nature as shared space with the environment and wildlife
nature as force
the nature of things
We encourage you to regularly spend 10 minutes in nature, listening and observing to provide inspiration for your song. Nature can be your back garden, the local park or wildlife area, seafront, a wood or a row of trees on a street etc. Make sure to take a suitable adult with you for safety.
Victorian botanist, adventurer and artist Marianne North, was born in Hastings and lived near The Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School. She loved to sing and travel the world. Over 800 of her nature paintings are displayed at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London.
