Infant Choir Concert – May 2017
The infant choir concert was a treat. The children clearly enjoyed their singing and had lots of fun. They sounded beautiful. They sang songs from across the curriculum – geography, history topics, in other languages and lots of songs they had composed themselves. They sang songs about bullying and of course our Holly Park school song. Another lovely event by Mr Hogan and the children.

Instrumental concert – February 2017
The children served up a wonderful concert on Tuesday evening with musical items from the classical and modern repertoires and pieces from a range of cultures. Our visiting tutors commented that we have the largest Instrumental Tuition provision in Barnet’s primary schools.
The standards of some of our Year 5 and 6 pupils are truly outstanding. Parents that attended got fully behind our young musicians with generous applause and encouragement. The evening was rounded off with Rock Band, String Ensemble, Wind Band, as well as many of our other young musicians, performing a modern pop song by Sia. There was a wonderful community spirit present from our parents and it undoubtedly inspired all the children to perform to their very best.

The Holly Park staff put on their own version of Robin Hood in a super panto to finish off the Christmas celebrations.
The Year 3 Nativity was absolutely wonderful. The children danced beautifully, sang sweetly and said their lines extremely clearly. Every child in Year 3 had a part to play. Many thanks go to the Year 3 teachers – Mr Bourne and Mrs Mehtar for their hard work and commitment with the rehearsals. Many thanks also to Mrs Gillingwater for organising the costumes and to Mr Hogan for the singing. The children participated with energy and enthusiasm.
As Mr Turner who taught the children last year said – it was a slick operation and the show really flowed. Mr Carini, who has done the nativity for a few years in the past when he was a Y3 teacher explained that it was nice to sit back and enjoy the show from a different perspective. He commented that it was clear just how much hard work had gone in to the show from both the children and staff. You can see more pictures here.
Our traditional candlelight concert was a magical event. A beautiful evening of songs. There were traditional Christmas songs, modern songs, songs from around the world, songs in other languages and songs from other religions and festivals who also celebrate festivals of light.
