Music is Power at Greenfield!

Specialist music staff within the Performing Arts department at Greenfield Community College, Aycliffe Campus, are delighted to announce we have been successful in securing a £9,999 Big lottery ‘Awards for All’ bid.

The money will be spent on replacing some of the ageing equipment in the music department following a campaign by students within our hugely successful Time for Success programme. Students, Declan Ballan, Connor Stewart, Adam Boyes and Cameron Whittaker were given an opportunity to create a real live campaign on a subject of their choice and this group of boys successfully took their ideas to Mr Priestley, who pointed them in the direction of the ‘Awards for all’ opportunity.

Together with the help of Michelle Postma, Extended School’s Coordinator, the boys have seen their campaign become real after securing the funding which will enable the department to buy state of the art equipment and be at the cutting edge of music education. We can’t wait to see our first orders come into school, will it be ukuleles or                                                                                               an Apple IMAC?
