Welling School welcomes Brooke, a young Maltese pop singer, to perform and run a workshop for some lucky students. All students involved in the workshop should go straight to P2 (Berwick Theatre) for 2pm on Tuesday 20th April. She is releasing a single later this year and doing a promotional tour for several very lucky schools!

Brooke is only 16 and yet has achieved a lot in the music industry, reaching number one in Malta! See her website here for her biography. She has also already worked as a children's TV presenter.

Here is the single she will release later this year: 'Achilles Heel'

Voices For A Better World

Following the superb performance at the O2 last July of the Beatles extravaganza The Long and Winding Road', the date and theme of the 2010 project has just been released:

If you want to take part in this exciting project involving 6000 students, celebrities, singing, dancing and light shows, join the Choir who rehearse on Tuesdays after school in the Music Department. All are welcome! There will also be the chance to audition for a solo spot in the O2, as won by Ellie Smith last year in this video.

Click here for more details of the new show.

Battle of the Bands!

The VI Form are proud to introduce the first Battle of the Bands at Welling School!

The Battle commences on Friday 20th November at 6pm in Berwick Theatre... be ready to clash swords and guitars. Snacks and drinks will be available.

If you play in a band which has at least one member who attends Welling School, you can enter. See Miss Beer in her office, or Mrs Warren in the Music department to sign up.

May the best band win...

Trust's Got Talent - The Final!

The Final is here! Please come and support our fantastic 4 finalists who have battled through the Welling Heats and the Welling Final to win the chance to perform at the Grand Final at Kemnal Technology College in front of 3 top secret celebrity judges. There are cash prizes: £100 for the winner and £100 for the winner's Performing Arts faculty, £75 for the 1st runner-up and for their faculty, and £50 for the 2nd runner-up and for their faculty. We know our fab performers will do Welling proud.

Tickets are available from Reception and are selling out fast so get your tickets asap - £5 for adults and £3 for students. Please don't think 'Oh I'll just turn up on the night and pay then' because it will most probably be a sell-out, meaning you may not get in. Remember, there are 3 schools involved and we want the cheers for our acts to be the loudest!

Voices For A Better World - the gig!

On Wednesday 1st July, the choir took to the O2 stage along with 4,700 other people to perform 34 Beatles songs in the Voices For A Better World concert. It was an excellent day of rehearsals followed by a great concert. Photos to follow, but for now here's a couple of videos. Poor sound and visuals - they're probably from mobile phone footage - clips from official DVD to follow in a later post. Click here to buy the DVD!

Here's 'Get Back'. If you look at the people in orange t-shirts closely, you'll see the Welling choir in the back 4 rows!

Here's Ellie's solo in 'Let It Be', sung with Kway of 'I'd Do Anything' fame. At this point in the concert, a drama of John Lennon being shot had just been played out and the lights went out as he was shot... then all the performers lit a torch and the pair begin to sing. Spine-tingling stuff, I think you'll agree!
