The S2 Battle of the Bands took place on 3 April 2019. This was a new initiative from our music staff (Mrs Loughrey and Mrs Martin) .  Each class picked a song they all agreed on and individuals chose an instrument they were comfortable with and wanted to play. Everybody had been practising for a number of weeks prior to the big battle. A wide range of songs were performed, from country to 80's pop. There were various instruments chosen including: Keyboard, Bass, Electric and Acoustic Guitar, Saxophone, Violin, Vocals, Xylophone and Drums.

  • Dancing Queen - 2G1 
  • Sweet Home Alabama - 2G2 
  • Mamma Mia - 2L1 
  • Take On Me - 2L2

  • September Song - 2T1
  • Five Hundred Miles - 2T2
