On Wednesday 13th May, Sciennes Parent Council arranged an opportunity to showcase the wealth of musical talents of our many music groups: School Orchestra, School P6/7 Choir, School Violin/Viola and School Woodwind as well as After School Clubs (co-ordinated by parent members of the Parent Council Fiona Denvir and Bethan McEwan) in A Capella, Fiddle, Guitar, Spanish Guitar and Recorder. It was an extraordinary evening at Marchmont St Giles – attended by a huge turnout of families – which was a wonderful celebration for our pupils, in recognition of their accomplishments. Thank you to Class Teacher and School Orchestra Leader Mrs Samanda Campbell for her superb organisation.
The school has worked in collaboration with the Parent Council throughout the year, to address feedback from a Parent Council parental survey which identified a desire for increased Music provision and greater clarification on free Instrument Tuition. This has led to additional Music opportunities being provided for the children throughout the year, publication of a revised Music Policy and the Music Showcase in May.
Further photographs of the Music Showcase can be found on our ‘Sciennes Loves Music’ blog and some video clips will be posted there presently.
