Ten musicians from Year 9 visited the site to perform in what will be their new music classrooms, the upper gallery area and the recital hall. This was part of the Queen Elizabeth Schools ‘Founders Day’ celebrations, a day in which the school celebrates its founding in 1573.
The students performed using Saxophones, flutes, violins and keyboards. Once they had performed, the site staff lead by the site manager John Blundell, provided the students and teachers with a guided tour of their new performing arts block.
During the tour John explained a bit about how the new block was constructed, how the project was progressing and when it was going to be ready for the students and teachers to start enjoying the new facilities.
The afternoon was enjoyed by the students, staff and particularly our project team who appreciated the pleasant change of listening to violins and flutes as opposed to the all too familiar sound of hammers and bolsters!
