Rotary makes a difference to the lives of children who have lived through the earthquake and aftershocks in Christchurch.
Here is feedback from the artists (Rhythm Interactive) and the schools involved
Here is feedback from some of the schools.
Linwood Avenue School has been involved with Antoni and Rhythm Interactive this year, thanks to the funding provided through Rotary. This programme has impacted the whole school as well as a group of 20 individuals who have built their repertoire of drumming to a pleasing level.
I have been extremely impressed by both programmes that have run. The school programme gave everyone a chance to participate in drumming in what was a fun filled but constructive programme that had everyone fully enthralled.
The small group lessons were well attended and the programme built on the children's skills. All progressed well and remained committed to learning during this programme.
I would fully endorse the programme given by Antoni and his team. The children were opened up to another facet of the world that they had not previous knowledge of and this built on their world experience.
I am extremely grateful to Antoni, and Rotary for providing this funding and programme in an area that is difficult for us to fund through our resources.
