Benenden Church of England Primary School

Hillview Festival & Dancing through the Decades

Wow, what a busy time we have had. The federation took four groups to the Hillview Festival of the Arts and two groups to the Dancing through the Decades Performance.

At the Hillview Festival Goudhurst entered the choir, being awarded a fantastic third place. Benenden entered the lower KS2 Contemporary Dance, again, finishing third. Then both Goudhurst and Benenden entered the upper KS2 Song from a Musical category and I was extremely proud to come away with a first place from Benenden and a second place from Goudhurst. These last two groups then performed again the next week at the Dancing through the Decades event at the Assembly Hall in Tunbridge Wells.

The children were all absolutely fantastic, a huge credit to both schools and to their teachers.

Thank you to Mrs Hoare for preparing the choir and to Miss Timmins for creating a wonderful Contemporary Dance for the younger children.

A very big thank you must go to the parents as we would not have been able to enter either event without your support with travel and costumes. I hope you all enjoyed both events,
