The choir’s back in Gillingham!


The Gillingham Primary School choir performed at the Riversmeet Christmas Fair on Sunday 27th November – the choir’s first performance in a public venue for three years due to COVID restrictions.
Many of the children in the choir are new members and had never performed either in such a large venue or in front of such a large audience.
There were 35 children performing, ranging from children ranged from Year 1 five-year-olds to the 10-year-olds in Year 5; the majority of the children were under the age of seven.
The choir was under the direction of Gillingham Primary’s music lead, Mrs Mawer, who was assisted by Mrs Shanks and Mrs Avery on the day.
They sang many Christmas songs but the highlight for everyone had to be the 12 days of Christmas – complete with actions!
Headteacher Mrs Early says: ‘So many members of the public commented on how nice it was to see a school choir performing and it was a lovely opportunity for the children to gain confidence and enjoy singing – something that has been missed by so many over the last few years.’
