Warbstow school choir entered the Launceston Music Festival at the Town Hall and were the winners of the shield three years on the running 1957, 1958 and 1959.
We sang as a choir at Launceston Music Festival in the Town Hall and competed against other school choirs, including Jacobstow school Choir. We won the shield on several occasions with Mrs H. Sheppard as the conductor.
