14 Hackney Primary Schools took part in the Gresham Centre’s ‘Open Minds’ vocal project with Apollo5 this Spring/Summer Term. All participating schools received visits from Apollo5 to work both with their pupils and teachers to improve vocal confidence and skill, and to spread the joy of singing across the school. All participating schools took part in final performances at the Gresham Centre.
Schools involved: Mandeville, Kingsmead, Simon Marks, Rushmore, Colvestone, London Fields, St Matthias, Millfields, Whitmore, Woodberry Down, Hoxton Garden, Daubeney, Brook and Springfield.
The Senior Hackney Borough Youth Choir have also been working on a Young Leaders project with Apollo5 this Spring, building up their workshop leading skills. Members of Senior HBYC supported Apollo5 in facilitating the workshops with primary schools at the Gresham Centre, a fantastic achievement for a group of Yr7 – 11 pupils!
