Weʼre raising £3,000 to help fund new guitars, keyboards and instruments in the music department
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Our pupils learn two instruments from 1st year and our musical instruments, particularly our guitars and keyboards, are desperately needing replaced with quality instruments which will inspire our pupils to play.
A semi acoustic guitar will cost around £250 and a Keyboard around 180. We have three music classrooms where instruments need replaced. Our sponsored singathon- hill walk in September will generate sponsorship monies from our pupils and will be shown here following the walk on the 16th of September. Pupils and their families are welcome to join us.
Our pupils in Boclair Academy are extremely talented and deserve top quality resources however the school budget has struggled to maintain the level of investment required, over and above investment in technology resources in our department which are also very expensive.
Our crowdfunding page and sponsored hill walk will allow all pupils to experience learning music on quality instruments next session and gain performing experience throughout their school life, building confidence and self esteem. Below are a few of the instruments we would hope to buy in bulk following this cause.
