Students showcased a range of musical instruments and styles and showed the fantastic quality of performances here at Holmfirth. We are looking forward to our Year 8 one later this year!
At the weekend our Jazz Band performed at Marsden Jazz festival which is one of the longest established jazz festivals in the UK. Thousands of visitors make the trip by train, bus, car or narrow boat to experience the unique atmosphere the festival brings to Marsden . We were lucky enough to play as part of the Youth Jazz programme on the Bandstand in the Park.
On Tuesday 25 July 2017 19 intrepid travellers set off on an expedition of a lifetime to Malawi for just over 3 weeks. Travelling with 4 members of school staff and 2 Outlook Expedition Leaders the children in their teams visited our partner school in Mzuzu, the Ministry of Hope Crisis Nursery where there were 11 babies to cuddle, made bricks out of mud for the Chesney Trust Project, helped build a library at Madise CDSS, along with kayaking on Lake Malawi. Each of the children had to fund raise up to 4k to take part on the trip which was all part of their journey. Further details and photographs can be found by following the link below.
