Rotary Club Young Musicians of the Year Competition

On Monday 20 November, Plume Academy hosted the Rotary Club of Maldon's Young Musician of the Year competition, with the performances taking place in the Stage Hall. 7 students across years 7-11 performed at the event, competing for a place in the District Final - Emma Frankland, Harriet Phillips, Naomi Harrington, Cameron Morrison, Bethany Butcher, Darcie Vernon and Ella Nelson. Two judges attended to oversee the decision making; local community member Trevor Parmentor, and professional violinist Emma Penfold. All 7 students performed superbly under the pressure of such an event, and Emma commented on the high standard and confidence the competitors had demonstrated.

One winning student from each category (vocalist and instrumentalist) will now go through to the District Final at Chelmsford Cathedral on 24 February to compete against musicians from all over Essex. The results were as follows:

Joint 3rd - Darcie Vernon (French Horn) and Ella Nelson (Voice)

Runner Up - Cameron Morrison (Flute

Winner - Bethany Butcher (Voice & Piano)

Congratulations to all involved and thank you for your continued commitment to Music!

RAG Week Presentation of Funds

On Tuesday 14th November, the Student Leadership Team presented their fundraising money from RAG week to their chosen charities. Mark Neville of the Alzheimer's Society and Ross Power of the Vinjeru School Trust each attended the presentation of the proceeds to receive half of the grand total: £518.54. The event allowed the team to interact with the charity representatives during lunchtime and to find out more about the worthy causes that both charity representatives devote their time and effort to. The members of the Student Leadership Team learnt how Mr Neville and Mr Power work to improve the lives of others in their day to day work and hear some of their remarkable stories. Both of the charities were extremely grateful for the team’s fundraising efforts and we all hope we can continue to support these fantastic causes in future.
