MAKING THEMSELVES HEARD

The Music Department welcomed over 80 children from Wimborne Junior School for a morning of musical discovery this term.

The children very enthusiastically took part in a percussion workshop, learnt to sing in the round and enjoyed hearing some PGS pupils play in a small brass ensemble. "It was an incredibly enriching day for everyone involved," said Mr Gareth Hemmings, Director of Music. "The Wimborne pupils engaged with all the activities positively and our pupils enjoyed sharing their love of music with them."

The feedback we received from Wimborne Junior School was that "the children really enjoyed it and so did the Wimborne staff! I asked the children on the way back what they enjoyed the most and different children expressed an interest in each of the sections, so it really was something for everyone." The event was part of an ongoing programme of outreach activities run by departments throughout the school.
