St Ann’s gets into the rhythm

Music has been taking centre stage at St Ann’s for their Annual curriculum Week, which got underway on Monday.

Pupils from St Ann’s School in Morden have been indulging in a multitude of musical tastes that will culminate in participation of a concert at Wimbledon Theatre on Tuesday 14 March. The ‘Music For Life’ concert, organised and funded by Merton Music Foundation, takes place between 7.00pm and 9.00pm and involves pupils from nine primary schools and Merton’s Jazz Orchestra.

St Ann’s will open Tuesday’s concert with a drumming presentation in collaboration with children from Cricket Green School in Mitcham and Malmesbury Primary School in Morden.

This week, pupils have witnessed a variety of musical experiences, including community based music links, a rock band, flamenco dancer, flute duo, windwood trio and a number of independent musicians, who offered their musical imagination and flair to the intrigued pupils.

Elisabeth Wigley, Music Teacher at St Ann’s School said:

“This week has given our children exposure to a wide variety of musical tastes, as part of our Annual Curriculum Week. It’s been a real pleasure having music as the central theme for this week, and the most rewarding aspect is the enjoyment and sense of fulfilment it has given pupils at St Ann’s.

“Next Tuesday’s event at Wimbledon Theatre will no doubt prove to be the highlight and prove to be a memorable experience for all those involved.”

The finale of this week’s activity sees the pupils visiting Morden Baptist Church on Friday 10 March at 10.00am to listen to the London Gospel Arts Choir.
