St Margaret's 'Simba' is a hit!

We were delighted to welcome children from local primary schools for a Lion King-themed Creative Arts workshop called ‘Simba’. 

Twenty children joined from schools in and around Calne, including St Edmund’s School, Fynamore School, Cherhill C of E School, Priestly School and Queen’s Crescent School in Chippenham.  

Children enjoyed two workshops – one in the Art Room where they made African head masks and one with the Music Team, where they rehearsed singing I Just Can’t Wait to be King, along with a performance on the African drums.  The evening culminated with a performance to parents – the children were thrilled to perform to their audience and delivered the song with great gusto! 

Mr Bromwich closed the evening saying ‘At St Margaret’s we are committed to developing community partnerships and this is the first of many community events we are very much looking forward to hosting.’ In May we will be running our next community event – a sports workshop called ‘The Ultimate Challenge’ where children can enjoy sessions in Ultimate Frisbee and on the school’s climbing wall.

Alongside St Mary’s Calne, St Margaret’s also run a children’s community choir, ‘The Major Minors,’ who meet every Monday.
