The Gower School children are absolute stars! At the 2022 North London Festival of Music, Speech and Drama, TGS children won 2 medals in the verse speaking competition a stunning 10 medals in the recorder competition.
The festival’s verse speaking competition took place on Sunday 8th May, with several TGS children impressing the judges with their performance so much they were acknowledged with Merits for their efforts. Two children placed in the competition: a Form 2 boy who placed 3rd in the ages 5-6 class, and a Form 4 girl who placed 2nd in the ages 7-8 class.
The festival’s recorder competition took place on Monday 9th May, where the children played their best in a variety of solo and ensemble performances. Each child’s diligent practising and professionalism seriously impressed the competition judge, who awarded them with several 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place prizes in several performance categories.
