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.
