On Monday, Year 6 took part in Recycle Recital, a percussion workshop using household objects to make music. The children worked with Paul Powell from the iCan Project, an educational company dedicated to supporting young people and their families. The project is backed by Headlands School.
After a couple of rehearsal sessions, the children were ready with pans, cutlery, kitchen utensils and home-made shakers, poised to rock the rafters. The resulting concert livened up our Monday afternoon and was enjoyed by everyone.
As well as providing musical entertainment, the concert gave us a chance to recycle some loose change. The children were asked to bring in donations from family and friends to support a local charity. We are pleased to announce that we raised £89.85, which will be donated to the Hinge Centre in Bridlington. The Hinge Centre provides support, guidance, services and opportunities to those facing social and financial deprivation. The organisation is committed to ensuring support is available to some of the most vulnerable members of our community.
Thank you so much to all the families who have supported this event, and in particular to the Spencer family who collected the sum of £40.60.
