Pearson Arts Festival
Pearson High School held their Bi-Annual Arts Festival during the period 22-26 July. This festival once again proved to be an opportunity for our music department to showcase the talent we have here at Herbert Hurd. On Monday, the band took part in the band category and received a silver certificate. The band has been hard at work since the end of last term in preparation for this event. There were also a few soloists entered. Megan Kennedy (French horn) received a silver certificate and a special mention from the adjudicator for performing so confidently on an instrument renowned for its complexity. Rebecca Haswell (trombone), Keira Farndon (trumpet), Zaid Niemand (trumpet), Stewart Frieslaar (flute), Danika Coltman (tuba) and Tamara Human (trumpet) all received gold certificates. This is a stellar feat for our pupils and we congratulate them. A special word of thanks must go to Ms S. Fowlds who accompanied all these pupils on piano. These pupils have reaped the rewards of their hard work. Long may this continue.
