The junior school jazz band from Christel House South Africa, in Wetton, recently won double gold and silver at the Annual Conserve Eisteddfod in Stellenbosch. According to a statement, the event which aims to provide an opportunity for learners to express their musical abilities and skills in a safe, encouraging and inspiring environment, was organised by fourth-year music majors from Stellenbosch University (SU). The jazz band, led by music teacher, James George, impressed the adjudicators with their performance.

The learners were happy to receive positive feedback from the expert adjudicators and proud to receive their certificates.

George said the school integrates music within its curriculum and has a world-class music programme. “Being part of such an event not only provided our students with a yardstick to measure their talent but also an opportunity to enrich their minds on the vast career opportunities within the music industry,” said James.
