All hands on deck for TheatreFest 17

deleted

Pupils from Years 5 and 6 at Jurby Community School took part in the recent “Come and Play” concert at the Villa Marina, organised by the Halle Orchestra, in conjunction with the Isle of Man Arts Council. The children, together with their teachers, have been taking part in the Isle of Man Music Service’s Soundstart programme since September. This initiative involves all the children in Years 5 and 6 having weekly lessons on a Brass, Woodwind or Percussion instrument, either individually or as part of a wind band. The concert with The Halle was the children’s first public performance and following on from this success they are busy preparing for their end of year concert, and wondering how to top performing with The Halle.

World-famous orchestra to visit, Arts Council announces

Anagh Coar Primary School marked Children’s Mental Health Week last week by filling buckets in their classes with kind thoughts and feelings. The week started with an assembly where they shared the story ‘Have You Filled A Bucket Today?’ by Carol McCloud, which explains that everyone needs positive thoughts and feelings from others to keep their invisible buckets full of happy thoughts and to help improve their self-esteem. Mr. Coole, Headteacher, then tasked the classes with filling their own buckets up with positive comments about each other to be shared throughout the week. He said: ‘It is such a simple idea and one that the children fully understood as a way of thinking about the positive things they could do for one another throughout the week and going forward.’ The school also installed a ‘Buddy Bench’, donated by the Friends of Anagh Coar School (FOACS), and the School Council ordered positive play equipment from money donated by one of the School Governors. Mr. Coole said: ‘The children are very excited about making playtimes even more positive than they already are and the School Council are keen to get a proper playground buddy scheme organised in the coming weeks. This should hopefully then have a positive impact on our pupil’s mental health because they will have even more to be happy about every day!’

The Headteacher, School Governors, Staff and Students of Castle Rushen High School have much pleasure in inviting you to our Art and Design Technology Exhibition, which promises to be a creative showcase of the GCSE and A’ Level cohorts final examination pieces in Fine Art, Textiles, Engineering, Product Design and Resistant Materials. The event takes place on Thursday, 26th May from 7pm-9pm in the Art and Design Technology Departments. There is no entry fee and access to the event is via the school’s main foyer doors. The Subject Team Leader for Design Technology, Mr Richard Maltby, says, ‘The students have all worked exceptionally hard to create the work on display. All the pieces are to be moderated by the awarding bodies for each examination course, but, for now, members of the public are invited to join us in viewing the examination pieces in all their glory to celebrate the work of our creative young people. All are very welcome to attend this open event. Students will be on hand to answer any questions about their work and their own individual design journeys. Teachers will also be available to talk about the course specifications for any students who might be considering design as a possible career pathway.
