Christmas win for school choir

On Saturday November 21, members of the junior choir from Birchwood Grove School sang in Burgess Hill town centre as part of the Bright FM ‘Search for a Christmas Choir’.

The competition outcome had been decided by an online voting system and the top three schools were invited to sing at the switching on of the town’s Christmas lights.

We are delighted that Birchwood Grove received the largest number of votes and as competition winners, have not only made the school very proud, but also won £500 for the school’s music fund.

The children sang exceptionally well and gained a lot from the whole experience. Their teacher, Mrs Turner, was certainly very proud when the announcement was made, that they had won the competition. Their song will now be played on Bright FM on Christmas Day.
