Junior School opened its doors to the community on Sunday 16th September when we hosted an Inter-generational Concert, involving children from Early Years, pupils in Senior School and residents from Campbell Snowdon House in Quarriers Village.
The children and residents were involved in three separate workshops in the lead up to the concert, run by singing teacher Mrs Daniela Hathaway and the Senior pupils. The concert was funded by Create 18, who have funded projects in Scotland that helped young people get involved in their community through an activity, in this case music, to showcase their talents as well as being mentored for further development. This project was seeking to explore how music is the link to help communication and interaction between people of very varied ages.
On the afternoon of the concert, there was a huge turnout from families and members of the School community, including former staff and pupils. The audience were thrilled to hear a variety of musical items, from singers to cello duets and wood wind instruments. Some highlights included Ava Maria played on the Bass Clarinet, Loch Lomond, I Love a Lassie, Westering Home and excerpts from Mary Poppins which included lots of audience participation!
