What a fabulous end we had to 2016. A song, written by students from King Edward Vll College in collaboration with Belvoirdale and Warren Hills Primary Schools and Mount St Bernards Abbey received over 12,000 views and hundreds of positive comments. The four lads, aka Jack’s Jokers, were featured on Hermitage FM and Radio Leicester. The accompanying music video immortalises the song which we hope will be played over and over again for years to come.

 

Sometimes its nice to say thank you…

Our first 6 months have been amazing!!!

This is just a thank you to everyone who believed in us in the beginning, who are sharing the journey with us; who we have already met and will meet in 2017. Starting a new business takes a lot of passion, courage and conviction, so a special thanks to our families and friends too! We most certainly couldn’t have done on our own!!

Thank you

BELVOIR DALE PRIMARY SCHOOL ROCKS HAMLET AT CENTURY THEATRE

Posted on Updated on

Tuesday November 29th marks a significant day in the history of the future of Coalville. Tears were brought to the eyes of an audience of friends and family that watched the children of Belvoirdale Primary taking  to their local stage to perform Hamlet with an accompanying sound track of ‘Madness’

This really was one step beyond !  We were honoured to host such a  spectacle and welcome more groups and schools to do the same.

A very proud Headteacher Mr Dax personally thanked every child and provided them with a memento, and said they could all keep the cool costumes!

Local Film Maker, James Reader from Front Row Films said “‘With it’s themes of courtly intrigue, madness, corruption and revenge, Hamlet is one of the best loved yet most challenging of Shakespeare’s plays. I was amazed and spellbound by a cast of pupils from Belvoir Primary School last night who delivered a shortened version at the Century Theatre under the direction of new Head Teacher, Richard Dax. For pupils of this age to not only understand the play but to be actively engaged and excited by it was nothing short of inspirational. Hopefully this will mark the start of a series of Shakespeare performances by pupils from Belvoir Primary School. Which play is next? Watch this space! Full film coming soon on Coalville Heroes Facebook page”
