Mayoral Celebration for Musical Achievements
Posted by Admin-18 on 22 May 2018 at 13:00
Last week, Wardle Academy held a celebration evening for all of their musical students as a celebration of their commitment and dedication to music making. This celebration followed the success of their Junior Band and Youth Band becoming National Brass Band Champions in the National Championships held recently in Warwick, and the Youth Band becoming European Champions in the European Championships held in Utrecht over the May bank holiday weekend.
This is a fantastic achievement for our young people and they were extremely privileged that they could celebrate the Music department’s success with the newly elected Mayor, Mr Mohammed Zaman; Mr Kenny Crookston, CEO Brass Bands England; Cllr Janet Emsley, Littleborough Lakeside Councillor; President of Wardle Academy Band Association and Chair of Wardle Academy’s Governing Body, Mrs Caroline Drysdale and Mr Peter Bamber who has supported Wardle Academy’s bands for many years.
The students thoroughly enjoyed the evening and we would like to say a massive well done to students and colleagues who enabled this success.
