We love Craigroyston Community High School! It’s such an important part of the success of our work in North Edinburgh that we have a strong partnership with our closest neighbourhood school and you couldn’t ask for a better partner.
This term we were overjoyed to get back to face to face work in the school with our S1 bands project.
Every S1 class formed as a band with pupils being given the choice of playing drum kit, guitar, keyboard or singing. We asked classes to choose what song they would like to work on and then spent the whole term working up the material.
We have seen so much talent and enthusiasm especially on the back of such difficult time with absolutely no singing and hardly any instrumental tuition for so long we weren’t sure what to expect, but the pupils did themselves proud.
Teachers reported that the project has really helped give a post-covid lift and helped re-engage some pupils who had stopped joining in with music.
Really looking forward to getting started with the S2s next year!
