Heath Mount recently triumphed over hundreds of other schools others to win the final of the BBC Songs of Praise, Junior School Choir of the Year Competition 2012. The children, aged 8-13, performed the gospel song ‘Wade on the Water’ in the televised final.
Andrew O’Brien, a professional tenor in his own right, has led the Music Department at Heath Mount for the past three years. Heath Mount will be releasing a CD in celebration of their choral music and to mark the hard fought victory, the proceeds of which will be donated to the charity ‘Supporting Dalit Children’. The charity is currently fundraising in order to build a new school for the Dalit children who are considered ‘untouchable’, and so would not normally have the chance of any education.Partner Website: https://www.heathmount.org/curricular/music/ Wiki Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heath_Mount_School
