Musical education at Perseverance secondary gets big boost |02 March 2022
Musical education at the Perseverance secondary is set to get a big boost now that the school has received a set of musical instruments.
The instruments comprising a guitar, drum set and keyboardhave been donated by Georgina Dhillon, the chief executive of the Rila Group.
The Group ranks among the largest and fastest growing providers of medical and post-graduate education in the United Kingdom, delivering a wide range of educational projects internationally.
Mrs Dhillon is also well known here as the founder of the Hall of Fame project in state schools.
The instruments were handed over to the school’s head teacher, Marie-Mai Ntep, in a ceremony held on Friday last week in the presence of teachers and students.
The aim of the donation is to boost the performing arts in the curriculum and ignite an interest in music among the students.
Music will allow the students to have more creative freedom and to express themselves in a number of ways, as well as boost their confidence.
Studies have indicated that music is an extremely critical subject as it leads to better brain development, increases human connection, improves grades, helps to socialise, and even lowers stress levels.
According to the school’s management, the instruments will greatly benefit the students and allow them to participate in various local and cultural activities as well as competitions.
Mrs Ntep thanked the sponsor for her generosity and invited more people within the community to come forward and give a helping hand in the education and development of the children.
