Primary Music Practice-a-thon

The Parents, Teachers and Friends (PTF) Association have been collaborating with IGS Head of Primary Music Michele Ellis to create the IGS Primary Music Practice-a-thon, launched late last term.

While our students improve their music making abilities through regular practice, they will also be raising funds for Serendip Strings in Sri Lanka, a not-for-profit organisation for Sri Lankan children experiencing hardship. It offers them string instruments and lessons in a friendly and nurturing space.

Our students have been receiving Music Practice-a-thon booklets from the Year 6 Music Leaders Leni Belunek and Robbie Muir to record each time they practise music and acquire a donation.

The Practice-a-thon will take place throughout August and is a way of raising money for a cause. The idea is that students ask their friends, family and connections to sponsor them with 50 cents, $1 or $2 every time the student practises their instrument in the month of August.

IGS hopes to raise more than $2,000 to support Serendip Strings and to encourage our students to consider why it is important to support opportunities for children in other parts of the world.
