From the Principal’s Desk — May 11, 2011

Spring Concert – Looking Back With Pride

A wonderful evening of music and song led by Mrs. Catherine West, our amazing music teacher.  Thank you to all the staff that worked with our choirs and performance band and strings over the past few months in preparation for this evening. And thank you to the staff that came out and helped support our students at the concert.  This brings to an end our music performances for this year.  It was a wonderful celebration of 120 years of music at Swansea and we look forward to next year’s season.
