CHORISTERS from Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic Primary School have been handed £1,000 towards a school project of their choice after winning the Touchwood School Choir competition 2016.

Over the Christmas period 21 schools from across the region took centre stage in the shopping centre’s annual contest in a bid to win the coveted title and spread some festive cheer.

Amidst strong competition, the singers from Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic Primary School were handed the prestigious title of Touchwood School Choir Competition Winners 2016 after receiving more than 780 votes.

The choir were chosen as the overall winners after guests were blown away by their seasonal renditions of festive favourites including, Silent Night and We Wish You A Merry Christmas, which helped to inject some Christmas spirit into shoppers.




Ben Taylor, Headteacher at Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic Primary School, said: “We are delighted to have won Touchwood’s Christmas choir competition and the children are absolutely thrilled.

“We worked very hard on the day to deliver the best possible performance, and have decided that the money will go towards purchasing some new musical instruments for the school playground.”
