Due to the success of our lower school programme, we provided creative workshops for secondary school pupils.

Since opening our doors in November, we have fielded many phone calls from parents/guardians who wish to enrol their children on our programmes. We received funding from the Aiming High program which enabled us to purchase musical instruments for the Hear The Beat feasibility study. .

We conducted school workshops and extended our thanks to the Four Together Area Action Partnership and Councillor Brian Avery and Councillor Christine Potts who also contributed to the costs of this project.
