Our school music department has been shortlisted for a very special award! There is a competition to find the school that has the BEST music department. Lots and lots of schools enter. We entered and we have been chosen as one of the best so we are finalists. The final decision to choose the overall winner will be made on the 20th March.
I am very, very VERY happy that we have made it to the final. The only reason we have made it this far is because of YOU! I told the judges how brilliant you all are sharing your learning here on the blog. How many of you carry on with the work we start in lessons at home. Every single person who has tried hard in our lessons, left a comment on the blog, shared their experiences of learning an instrument and supported their classmates is responsible for our success.
We also have to thank Mr Dachtler, Mrs Schofield and Mrs Aransiola.
Mr Dachtler has made sure we have a great room and the proper equipment we need. Mrs Aransiola has created a fantastic singing culture in the school and set very high standards. Mrs Schofield has given us lots of technical support and advice.
This is a great learning opportunity for our school. I am going to meet all the other shortlisted schools and try to learn from them some of the great stuff they do but that we don’t do (yet!) We are at the beginning of our journey – we are still developing our after school music centre and we have lots to work on but being shortlisted is a good sign that we are going in the right direction.
Thank you to EVERYONE who has helped us get this far.
