Aims

To provide an online community singing experience during lockdown, between January 2021 and May 2021; to help improve the mental health and well-being of the participants

Background

Need to build/maintain the school community during lockdown. Emma Soulsby (Director of Music) identified the need to bring people together through a difficult time. Established during lockdown during the pandemic.

Resources

Online event - Zoom platform
Teaching staff - ERS

Impact

Positive feedback from participants following weekly rehearsals. Members of the Choir contributed to an online performance for Founders Day.

Pupil Involvement

Y9 - 13 pupils + adults, (staff, parents, ON's etc); mixed gender

Frequency

Single event. Aim is to follow up the project by inviting adult members of the School Community to rehearse together for future whole school events (Xmas Carol Service & Founders Day). Covid made this tricky for the recent Carol Service, but by Founders Day (June), this will be possible.
