JAZZ BAND FRIDAY
Well done to the Chisnallwood Jazz Bands who performed three times on Friday with 5 guest student players from Halswell School. You can see photos on the jazz band page of the website. We also enjoyed having Mrs Pritchard from Westburn School with us for the day. The day started (after a quick practice) at Aranui Library followed by an outside performance in the quad at Shirley Boys High to teachers from quite a number of schools on their training day lunch break. The Irish band joined for the final performance at Shirley Library.
