School's Golden Voices Wow Judges

Published Thursday 3rd of May 2012 12:02:51 PM

Children and staff at a school in Calne are proving to be a shining example when it comes to finding their voice through song.

St Margaret's Preparatory School has just gained its gold award in the national 'Sing Up' initiative, which was launched five years ago with Government money to get more schools singing.

To gain the golden accolade the school had to show that every member of the community, including Headmistress Karen Cordon, was keen to lead and join in with singing activities and that singing was used as a positive experience. Sing Up judge Pamela McGahon said:
'It is wonderful to see a school take singing to the heart of everything it is doing, with singing being encouraged both within the classroom to support learning and daily routines, as well as out on the playground to support play activities'. She was particularly impressed that the school had actively involved the parents with their children's singing and that staff sing to children as they go off on their school holidays.

St Margaret's now plans to expand its singing links with other schools in Calne and offer them support so they can take singing to the heart of their school. Mrs Cordon praised the hard work of all the staff and children that had gone in to gaining the award. She said: 'I want to offer huge congratulations to everyone involved, it is a wonderful achievement'.
