Singing is good for you emotionally, physically and socially. It can help to develop a child’s imagination and creativity and allows them to try new skills in a safe environment. Being part of a school choir creates a sense of togetherness, gives children a sense of belonging and helps them to make new friends. A place for sharing, laughter and fun.
The School Choir which meet once a week after school on a Thursday. It is open to all children, of any ability, who are committed to giving up their time for learning songs and rehearsing for the many shows and concerts they attend. They regularly sing at the Bolsterstone Christmas Fayre, Christ Church Stocksbridge and at our Junior Carol Concert.
We are very grateful to Miss Danks, who gives up her time each week to run choir and to accompany them to many musical events.
Each year Deepcar St John's Choir attend the Young Voices concert held at the Sheffield Arena. This is the biggest school choir event in the world with over 5000 children attending from all over the region. At the start of the school year, Young Voices share the words and music with all the schools taking part and they start learning the Lyrics and Choreography ready for the big day. They have such an amazing time, sing lovely songs and make some lovely memories. It is a trip of a lifetime and one that they will always remember.
