Our 3rd and 4th class pupils will be learning how to play the violin this year. The programme will be delivered through Music Generation Meath. This new organisation is a performance music education service for children and young people in County Meath that will provide opportunities for children and young people to access a range of high quality, subsidised vocal and instrumental tuition in their local area. Music Generation Meath is managed and funded locally by Louth and Meath ETB and Meath County Council. A tutor from Music Generation will come to the school every Monday to deliver the lessons. The programme itself is heavily subsidised by Bono of U2 fame and the Government. In addition, money from last year’s Parents’ Association fundraising will be used to reduce the cost to parents. It is a fantastic opportunity for our children and who knows what doors it will open for them into the future.
