Little drummer boys and girls of E13
There were little drummer boys and girls a plenty when primary school children made some noise to celebrate a music project.
Schools from the E13 Learning Community (LC) gathered together at Curwen Primary School in Atlas Road to bang the drum for the end of the first year and beginning of the second year of the Jigaree project.
Simon Vincent, E13 LC community business & learning manager, said: “It was a rip roaring end to a great first year - and a great way to launch Jigaree’s second year too!”
Led by Marie Da Silva, of community singing project Vocal Breakthrough, and African drum group, Drum Jam, more than 50 children sang and danced through the repertoire they have learnt at the Jigaree sessions.
Three partner schools in the E13 LC group (Plaistow, Cleves and Curwen) have hosted the music sessions this school year and they are set to be joined by Portway, Selwyn and Southern Road in May.
