More than 150 young singers from eight schools descended upon Ashville Junior School for its annual Choral Day.

The pupils, aged from eight to 11, were split into three groups where they rehearsed various songs which were performed en masse in a concert for parents later in the afternoon, led by Ashville’s Director of Music, John Dunford.

Ashville Junior School Head Teacher Jonathan Dolman said:

The Choral Day is always an exciting event for everyone taking part, and our pupils had been looking forward to it for weeks.

This is an occasion where boys and girls from different schools have come together to sing as one. This year there has been good selection of Disney songs as well as songs from shows such as Oliver, all of which are really enjoyable to sing.

He added:

The culmination of the day is a concert in our Soothill Hall which is open to all parents and family members.

This is where the children showed off their singing talents to proud parents and teachers. We very much enjoy hosting the Choral Day as it brings children from different schools and backgrounds together.

The schools that took part this year were Collingham Lady Elizabeth Hastings Primary School. And from Harrogate, Pannal Primary School; Rossett Acre Junior School; Bilton Grange Primary School; Richard Taylor, Oatlands Junior School, St Roberts RC Primary School and Ashville Junior School.
