School Choir performance at Atholton Primary School
The VPS school choir participated at a choir concert, held at Atholton Primary on the 12th March. Our choir sang a medley of songs from the "Sound of Music" with great enjoyment. A special treat was the performance of a Swedish High School choir singing in Zulu! There were many other Durban North choirs featured and it was a great opportunity for our choir to be exposed to other singers.
