King Harold Academy presents Junk Orchestra awards

​Year 7 music classes at King Harold Academy, Waltham Abbey, have competed for awards in the school's Junk Orchestra competition.

A 'Best Orchestra' prize was among the awards presented on Monday.

The exciting competition saw each class compose their own piece of junk band music and perform the work in front of their peers.

The judges deemed 7H1 the 'best orchestra' thanks to their "strong sense of pulse and a varied, interesting performance".

There were also prizes for the 'best conductor', 'best teamwork' and 'best instrument' for which the students used recycled materials such as old pieces of wood, butter tubs and paint pots.

Head of Music Diana Russell said: "The best musicians are those who can create a great sound from anything they are given, be it their voice, pencils, tapping on the table or empty bottles.

"If our students can make music to this standard with old junk, just think what they can do with real instruments!"

The school congratulated all the students who took part and thanked the judges - Becca Hamilton (Year 9), Keely Harmer (Year 9), Marnie Cairns (Year 10) and Maizey Douglas (Year 10) - for their efforts in deciding the winners.
