Where do I even begin? Proud is an absolute understatement. To be told by RUSSELL WATSON himself how incredible and talented your students are and what a joy it was to hear them sing so beautifully was just a moment I will never forget. I can safely say team YSBD smashed it with standing ovations and tears from the entire audience and staff. I am beyond proud of my students for showing absolute professionalism working alongside such a wonderful man like Russell. Truly one of the best nights I have
This Christmas, we thought what better way for parents to see all the skills we have been working on this term than by joining us and experiencing the YSBD magic for themselves. We had an absolutely fabulous day and thank you so much to all the parents for joining in. We think we may be adding a parent number into the summer showcase now and can definitely see where our students get all their talents from. It was wonderful to see you all there and we hope you all
Our lovely little and mini star classes had a special visitor form the North pole this Christmas! They all performed so beautifully and Santa was very impressed with their fabulous routines. He even told them all about his elves, reindeer and what it's like at Christmas time in the North pole. It was such a magical day and Santa even gave everyone a special present for being on the nice list. Well Done Everyone!!
