Commonwealth Choir

We aim to foster a Christian environment in which the gospel values are paramount and lived out within the school, parish and wider community..

In recent years we have joined with St Winefrieds Catholic Primary School in Manor Park to become involved in the Commonweath Youth Choir.

Queen's Christmas message

Children from Holy Cross Catholic Primary Academy were lucky enough to be included in the Commonwealth Youth Orchestra and Choir for The Queen's Christmas Message broadcast on Christmas Day 2017. 

For The Queen’s Christmas Message 2017 there were 52 children with Commonwealth Heritage in the choir, each child representing one of the 52 Nations of The Commonwealth.

In her message The Queen mentioned that the Commonwealth Youth Orchestra and Choir is a reminder of the “vibrancy of The Commonwealth”.
