Secondary Musical visit to Theatre Cuyas

Africa: energy, tradition and good music! These were the ingredients our students from Y7, 8 and 9 enjoyed as part of their Music curriculum, in an unforgettable concert at Cuyás Theatre, on Friday 11th of May.

The Senegalese music group Djilandiang offered an amazing show full of knowledge about African culture.

Our students had studied their Music in preparation for the concert. They could sing, play and dance along to the exotic percussion based music and traditional singing.

This was ‘Teranga, the heritage of the Giots from Senegal’.

Primary Choir Concert

On 10th May, at the Holy Trinity Church, we celebrated the annual choir concert performed by Oakley College and Canterbury school, providing the opportunity yet again, to see our children singing and enjoying this wonderful event.

This year our Primary choir performed three songs accompanied on the piano by Miss Sun and on the violin by Miss Claire. Both of whom we would like to thanks sincerely for their support. The music pieces were ‘Colours of the Wind’ from the movie Pocahontas, ‘I See Fire’ by Ed Sheeran and the American folk song ‘Bring Me Little Water Sylvie’. Our students sang three voices choral pieces playing body percussion at the same time! As always our students made our community of students, parents and staff very proud. Congratulations!

Secondary Choir

On Friday 04th May, our Oakley College Youth Choir took part in a Concert, along with 6 other choirs from local music schools, in the village of Moya. I am very proud to say that their performance was fantastic. Their behaviour was a credit to the school, both on and off the stage. Our students sang three songs: “Viva la Vida” by Coldplay; “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran; and  “Bring Me Little Water Silvye”, an American folk song accompanied by body percussion. I would like to give special thanks to Miss Claire for accompanying the performance on the violin, to Miss Anne for all of her support and to the families of the choir students for their support during this important time.

Oakley College Primary Choir – Triana 2017

Dear families,
On Saturday 2nd of December we had the opportunity to see our Oakley Primary Choir performing in the ‘Christmas Children´s Event’ in Triana, presented by the famous Rafaelito ‘el Payaso’.
Our choir was one of five schools chosen and the experience of meeting the other children and singing in a real stage with the lights, TV cameras recording and microphones around made it a fun evening for all.
The Primary Choir sang four Christmas themed songs, accompanied on the piano by Mr. Jono and on the clarinet by Laura Quesada, from Y11.
Our students were, as always, very professional on stage and I feel very proud of their performance and behaviour!
Thanks to all of you who came to see the Choir and thanks also to the parents in supporting their children´s education outside the school timetable.
