Music Festival 2018

Once again Penrice Academy musicians represented their school at St Austell’s Music Festival, coming away with a fantastic number of awards and top recognition.

Mr Jones said: “As always we are extremely proud of the students who took part in this year’s Music Festival. I was really impressed with the number of first and second places that were awarded to our young musicians and of course we couldn’t do it without our wonderful instrumental teachers Mrs Farley and Mrs Frost.”
