Stone Rocks 2017
On Saturday 15th July, Christ Church Academy hosted our annual Stone Rocks Music Festival. This was the third year for this festival which was bigger and better than ever before! Stone Rocks played host to singers and dancers, past present and future with guest appearances from other schools and groups too.
Luckily after a wet start to the day, the weather held out for the event which saw the main stage rock and the acoustic tent offering chilled out vibes.
We were delighted to welcome a number of stalls to the event too, including the Mill Restaurant offering a delicious paella and BBQ, an ice cream and crepe stall for those with a sweet tooth, a coffee bar as well as a number of craft and charity stalls.
Speaking after the event, Head of Music Kieron Harrison said “It was a fantastic success again. Well done to all the pupils past and present that took part. All performers blew away the crowd with their talent and we’re already thinking ahead to Stone Rocks 2018!"
Come and Play with the Halle
20 Christ Church Academy musicians from the school orchestra went to The Victoria Hall Hanley to participate in the Come and Play with the Halle concert. The concert featured the world famous Halle orchestra and schools from all over Staffordshire.
Congratulations to all participants for an excellent representation of our school.
The school choir performed exceptionally during the window unveiling for the Stone avent calendar. They are currently practising for the festival of Christmas music.
Stone Rocks 2016
