Let’s Sing - the golden hinde

A Celebration of Musical Talent & Collaboration

On Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th February, over 270 children from 10 Greensand Multi Academy Trust schools and associate schools congregated at Reigate Baptist Church to perform a programme of contemporary songs inspired by the adventures of Sir Francis Drake on The Golden Hinde.

With narration detailing Drake’s adventures peppered with group performances of recognisable hits, this was a fantastic opportunity for the music leads from each school to work collaboratively, showcasing not only the talents of the pupils and teaching staff, but also demonstrating the power of schools working together in partnership.

Some of the many highlights across the two evenings included a wonderful rendition of Hillsong’s ‘Oceans’ by Reigate School; our Primary, Junior and Infant schools coming together beautifully with Reigate School to perform ‘We Know the Way’ from Moana and a spectacular finale  with a very special performance of ‘Never Forget’ by Take That.

With creative interpretations of other well-known songs by Imagine Dragons, Shakira and from films such as Rio 2 and The Pirates of the Caribbean, this annual event is extremely popular with both pupils and parents, an uplifting occasion that celebrates Greensand Multi Academy Trust member and associate schools.

Sue Wardlow, CEO Greensand Multi Academy Trust:

“It was a delight to see children ‘Stepping into their Greatness’ at this Greensand event by coming together in song.

Their beautiful singing reflected not only their talent but also the spirit of collaboration fostered through such events, a testament to the power of music to unite and inspire.

This event reaffirms Greensand’s belief in the transformative power of education and the arts in shaping a bright future for our school communities.”
