PUPILS from Holme Junior and Infant School could be heading to the Royal Albert Hall thanks to their musical talents.
The school has won a place in the regional heat of the National Festival of Music for Youth competition.
The heat will take place on July 7 at Adrian Boult Hall in Birmingham – and the top performers will be chosen to appear at the Music for Youth Proms concert at the Royal Albert Hall later this year.
The Holme pupils qualified for the regional heat by competing at Honley High School in March.
All 37 children at the school – aged four to 11 – took part in the performance, which had an African theme.
They used handbells, clarinets, guitars, recorders and vocals to perform traditional African folk songs.
The pupils plan to bring in authentic African percussion instruments to revamp their performance in Birmingham.
Headteacher Simon Sloan said the pupils had worked hard, as had teacher Pat France and support assistants Alina Beresford and Dot Storry.
“The amount of time and effort they have all put in is wonderful. We’ve also had really good support from parents.
“The performance was quite a special thing. It will be an amazing experience for the children at Birmingham.”
