Haddenham Community Junior School held an Arts Festival on Friday evening 27th April.
Very much the brain child of specialist arts teacher Mrs Cathy Duncan, the format of the event reflected an eclectic mix of written, drawn and painted pieces on display as well as live performances of music and dance.
Guests were able to wander around various areas of the school to enjoy the artistic and crafted work of the pupils, while enjoying the atmosphere of a live and dynamic event.
Local children's author, Steve Cole, presented awards to two HCJS pupils for their particularly well-crafted written pieces — Maggie McLoughlin and Freya Kittel.
Musical performances included collective voice and brass ensemble pieces as well as solo performances. Modern dance was also performed with considerable energy and artistic merit.
The main hall also offered a vast area of meticulously displayed exhibits, illustrating the artistic and writing skills of the pupils.
The HCJS Arts Festival was an excellent initiative and one the school will hopefully repeat at various points in the future.
