Maunu Music on Tour – Term 3

In the first week back the drummers and choir went on tour.  It was a chance to strengthen community connections and spread the word that at Maunu School we value music, participation and teamwork.   Dave Meredith provided the funk and 42 kids brought tears to some and joy to all. First stop was Whangarei Central Library, where the lit up steps in the kids area provided the perfect stage and toddlers found the booming of the drums a blast.  After a quick morning tea, it was off to Selwyn Park Village. As Emma Davies commented, “it was nice to see so many familiar faces and to be in a place where we all felt at home.” With the help of a walking frame, Millie demonstrated the boomwhackers with gusto and the choir sang with strength.  Of course the day would not have been possible without the support of all the adults who came along on the day to help out. Thank you again to you all. What’s next? Well it’s an audience with the Mayor and local councillors on the 6th of September in the Council Chambers! We will all be practising hard before then and I look forward to sharing the news from that event with you. Check out the videos and photos on the school website.
