News Brass Quintet Visit Year 4

On Friday 21st November a Brass Quintet came to Southglade to perform to the Year 4 children in Class 5 and 6. 

They played a selection of songs:

William Tell
Amparito Roca
Hora Lui Pusac
Nobles Procession
Glenn Miller selection
Ain't misbehaving
Saint's Hallelujah - Trombone solo
Star Wars funk arrangement
Wade in the water

Class 5 and 6 sang along, played percussion to accompany the brass quintet and had the chance to conduct the quintet and change their tempo.

The Brass Quintet then performed a song for the children eating their lunch in the hall.

It was an enjoyable morning and the Year 4 children were inspired to continue to learn their brass instruments.

News Matthew Jessons's fundraising

Earlier this year, we raised money for an ex-pupil (Matthew Jesson) to help his appeal for building a school in Morrocco. Here is Matthew's report. (with some photos here).....

"

It doesn’t seem too long ago that I was asking for you, your child’s and Southglade’s support in helping me to fundraise for my volunteer project in Morocco. This was specifically to help construct a language centre, for teaching Arabic and French to 3 – 6 year olds, in order for the children to communicate more effectively as the majority can only speak fluently in local Berber languages.

Our group’s main task throughout our stay was to tile the floor of the entire building. In England this task would have been completed in a couple of days but due to the lack of machinery, supplies and heat it took just over 10 days. We were back to basics in making the cement from scratch and forming human bucket chains to move the tiles and cement up to the language centre.

The local children were keen to observe and help with the project and are eagerly awaiting the full completion later in the year. As we stayed in the heart of the village the group were able to engage with the children who were excited at the prospect of showing us their local community and way of life and in return we were able to entertain them with football and parachute games after a day’s work had been completed.

The two weeks I spent out in Marigha, Morocco have without a doubt been the best of my life and for that I thank those who supported me in reaching my fundraising total. It was a highly rewarding experience and one that if given the opportunity to repeat I would have no hesitation in doing so."
