In the Spring Term we worked really hard, preparing all the songs to be part of a massed choir made up of 30 Barnet Schools at 'BEAT THE WORLD' at the Royal Albert Hall which would have taken place on 30th April of this year. Although the event had to be cancelled, some of the children took part in a recording -organised and put together by BEAT- of 'Refuge' a beautiful song written by Howard Goodall.
