The strings teachers have had an exciting but busy start to the year, with the introduction of a new Year 5 string group at Papatoetoe Central School. The team now works at three neighbouring schools - Papatoetoe Intermediate, Papatoetoe East Primary and Papatoetoe Central School, meaning that the children can sometimes present items for each other or make music together - always lots of fun and a great way of building up their self confidence and enthusiasm.
At the same time in the wind programme there have been further positive developments which will be of major benefit to the students. We now have a team of 4 tutors, each specializing in one or two instruments. This gives all the wind students the same advantages as the string pupils, with group tuition in their own instruments as well as the usual ensemble playing as a band once a week.
