We know that the festive season has truly begun when we take all the children in school who learn a musical instrument to Mellor Road Church to listen to Dr Gordon Stewart play the organ. This year Mrs Shepley and Mrs Williams took 29 children to listen to Gordon tell them all about the organ. He had a camera set up projecting pictures on to a screen so the children got a close look at what different pedals and levers do! They also got to go to the organ keyboard in smaller groups and check out the buttons and keys!
The children were also treated to a drink and the teachers were congratulated on how polite all of the children were when speaking to the volunteers at the church. We know our children are always polite but it is so lovely to hear it from other people occasionally!
Well done to our musicians.
