Beckton school to hold winter draw to help music block
Staff at a primary school are urging people to buy tickets for their Winter Draw and help raise funds for their music block.
Gallions Reach Primary School has a wide variety of prizes for its Grand Winter Draw and is hoping to raise more than £2,500 from it to help pay for a Music Block.
Paul Jackson, head teacher at the school, said: “Every child from Years 2 - 6 plays a string instrument and every child from the Nursery to Year 6 has specialist music lessons every week.
“We believe these lessons make a huge difference to the children’s learning in all areas of the school. Due to a growth in pupil numbers and lack of space, the music programme is in danger of ending.
“To ensure this vital provision continues, we are planning to build a Music Block within the school grounds.”
