Coming up in June and July we have a very important festival happening at Crossroads Academy- Reginal Schools Music Feativals.
In the past, our student choir has made it all the way to nationals and brought back trophies as well as MUCH honor to the school and the educators that have poured a into them.
Teacher Daniel grew up in a family of 11 and found ways outside of school to be taught how to sing. Now he takes that same passion for singing and makes sure it’s found in school and the efforts are obvious.
Going the extra mile - Teacher Daniel watches the grades of the students in his hand picked choir. He often takes children who may be struggling academically and then mentors them in singing until they are strong enough to lead practice while he is working with individuals. He has tackled a concept that we hope spreads like wildfire, for it has given confidence to students who don’t always find it through academics.
Our school has become known for our choir and beautiful harmonies with songs ranging from old hymns to traditional African music.
It is beautiful and the festival has begun this week starting with sub-county level competitions. Which we are fortunate to be hosting at our school!
There’s so much more gained than just learning music. There’s team work, mentorship and the chance to travel to areas of the country that they otherwise would not be able to see. This exposure is a gift and it’s conduit is music.
Keep praying for the team as they Prepare for great opportunities to learn new songs and be good competitors.
