At the end of Trinity term, seven Senior School staff and four pupils will take the Trinity College of Music Grade 1 Challenge.
Over the past few weeks they have been learning a new instrument to Grade 1 standard and on Wednesday 5 July they will take the exam alongside other Trinity Music candidates.
Apart from having fun and learning new skills, the participants will be raising money for Jessie’s Fund, a charity which helps children with additional and complex needs or serious illness to communicate by using music. Music can provide a powerful and profound way in which children can express themselves and connect with the world around them. Jessie’s Fund supports projects in schools and hospices, such as funding music therapy and providing specialist equipment.
The staff participants are Mrs Neighbour (violin), Mrs Lawrence (flute), Mrs Taylor (flute), Mrs Ayling (saxophone), Mrs Duncan (piano), Mr Whatling (recorder) and Mrs Missin (recorder). Senior School pupils taking part are Richeldis France (saxophone), Abigail McGlone (flute), Anna Kober (flute) and Catherine Missin (clarinet).
You can support this great cause by making a donation via ParentPay.
Wisbech Grammar School believe in encouraging their pupils to “Discover who they are” outside of the four walls of a classroom. Music is just one of the many ways the School offers an “All-Round Education that Inspires”, along with the great work many of their pupils and staff do in raising money for charity.
