On 13th May, The Hawkes, a rock band made up of Year 9 Newquay Tretherras students, took part in the ‘Battle of the Bands’ at Truro College.
The group, who recently came third in the NT’s Got Talent competition, gave an outstanding performance and came out with second place on the night.
Mrs Rhian Knight, Teacher of Music at Tretherras said, “The Hawkes competed against bands who were several years older than themselves so it was a fantastic result for them.”
She continued, “The group work really hard, spending all their spare time rehearsing, whether it be in the school’s music department or in their garden shed. We are thrilled to have these five students who are so committed to their music.”
The Hawkes can be seen at Tretherras’ Summer music festival here at Tretherras on June 24th at 7pm.
