Team story

[p]Our Ardvreck charity of the year for 2019 - 2020 has been chosen as The Amber Trust. As always the staff have banded together to take part in a massive challenge. This year we will all be putting ourselves into the shoes of our pupils and learning a new musical instrument. Our challenge is to take ABRSM Grade 1 on our instruments in May 2020. Our (already) musical Maestros have even pushed themselves a little further by entering for advanced diploma exams taken within the space of a term (usually several years preparation is required!) With our Head of Science & Director of Studies, Mr Banks, pushing himself to pass a Diploma of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in violin performance.[/p][p]You'll be able to follow our exploits (probably best with sound off!) by visiting the school facebook page.[/p][p][url=https://www.facebook.com/ArdvreckSchool]https://www.facebook.com/ArdvreckSchool[/url][/p][p]The Amber Trust is an extraordinary charity who support some incredible people and use music to help improve the lives of blind children through music.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]News[/u]:[/b][/p][p][b]Summer Term![/b][/p][p]As with many events around the world this term has sadly seen the cancellation of our Grade-1-athon. However, do not fear!! We will be holding an Amber day and Amber themed events towards the end of term.[/p][p]Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us so far!

The Fair was beautifully decked out and attended by many parents, friends, staff and neighbours. Thank you to all the stall holders.

As part of Mr Banks' preparation for his Diploma he presented an evening of music from the romantic violin.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
