It was a big weekend for Newfoundland and Labrador children’s performers, The Swinging Belles, in Calgary, Alberta. The group took home the Juno for Children’s Album of the Year at the pre-show Saturday evening in advance of the main ceremony Sunday evening. The Swinging Belles snagged the only Juno for performers from this province, though a number of talented Newfoundland and Labrador artists were nominated. The trio, whose album More Sheep, Less Sleep  was released in 2014, consists of teachers Laura Winter (Bishop Feild Elementary), Erin Power (Larkhall Academy), and local musician Duane Andrews.

Congratulations Belles! You surely have an ‘attitude for gratitude’ and from your many young fans and their families, your students and colleagues throughout the province, we ‘think you’re great’ and can’t wait to see what other adventures swing your way!

The school communities of Bishop Feild and Larkhall Academy were happy to welcome their Juno winners back to class this week! Click on the link below to see the local media coverage.
