We would like to congratulate Bella (Year 6) for winning the Paul Fretwell Music Award for the spring term. Mrs Salway had planned to present this to Bella at the end of last term, but with the situation as it is, that wasn’t possible.
So, today, Bella became the first pupil in Skyswood history to receive a surprise ‘Zoom’ call to announce her achievement, before mum proudly presented her with the award.
Bella has made exceptional progress with the clarinet, and also plays the piano and sang beautifully at the Royal Albert Hall Gala concert. Her attitude during class music sessions and during her peripatetic lessons is exemplary and we are all extremely proud of Bella.
Mrs Salway, Mrs Marshall (clarinet teacher), Mrs Spiller, Mr Oswin and Mr Bridle were all delighted to take part in the surprise call at 1.30 this afternoon. Well done Bella, you so deserve this award and have so much musical talent to offer!
