PRESS RELEASE - March 2017
LOCAL SCHOOL HAS GRANT SUCCESS
Oak Tree Primary School recently received two grants to help improve their music resources and extra-curricular music provision.
EMI Music Sound Foundation provided a grant to purchase ukuleles and books to help Miss Greenwood, curriculum lead for Music, to set up a ukulele after school club.
JN Debyshire Trust also answered the schools cry for help and agreed to fund teacher resources to help the further development of the school choir and also to allow school to purchase samba band instruments. The school Choir sang in Tesco at Christmas and has entered the 2017 Mansfield Music and Drama Festival for the first time, in a long time.
Oak Tree Primary School Head Mark Thrower said
“We want to provide our children with chances to try different genre of music and to have opportunities to perform. With the support of both EMI Foundation and JN Derbyshire Trust we now chance to make this happen.
We have a talented musician on the staff team, Miss Greenwood. The children will learn a great deal from her, using our brilliant new resources.”
