Eye on the arts at Alleyne
The talents of Alleyne School students are being proudly displayed during the school’s inaugural Arts Week.
And it’s just what Head of the Arts Department Deborah Bascombe said was intended to happen.
“We decided that we wanted to have an Arts Week to display the talents of the students, both past and present. We had an open exhibition yesterday. We started with a church service on Sunday. Our theme for the week is ARTS: Art, Rhythms, Talent and Sports,” she explained.
Today, the first to third form students were thoroughly entertained by former musicians of the school, including saxophonist Shacory Thompson and Kwaku Jalani on trumpet. The children sang along to many of the popular tunes that were performed.
Bascombe said she was pleased with the response to the activities so far and highlighted the plans for the remainder of the week.
“The band for the school will be going out tomorrow to represent the school at the lunchtime concert for Education Month. On Thursday, we are going to have a community project where all students are going to be able to paint part of a picture, and then on Friday we will take prayers and donate the pictures to the school,” she said.
