Carnival of the Animals

Parents and relatives were treated to a musical extravaganza on Wednesday as the pupils of Ashdon School performed “Carnival of the animals.”

Featuring music from the work by  Camille Saint-Saëns, children acted, danced and sang accompanied by a community choir formed of local residents and former pupils.

Music Director Sarah Clark who directed the piece was thrilled by the levels of engagement shown by the children. “It all came together brilliantly,” she said,” and it has been so good to link the community choir with the children from the school, proving once and for all that music and the arts can add so much to a child’s education.”
