The Trust welcomes the approach of any school interested in joining Bridge Schools, regardless of size, location or status.
Bridge Schools are currently involved in a year-long collaborative music project led by Nick Hart to co-create choral compositions which will be performed at The Eden Project by some of Cornwall’s finest choirs this September with the theme of environmental well-being the inspiration.
Last term, Bridge Schools children from across the 14 primary academies met Luci Isaacson, leading climatologist, to develop their understanding of the key environmental issues challenging our planet. They then worked with talented musician Matt Douglas from Cornwall Music Education Hub to transform their ideas into songs with the ambition of inspiring change.
One of the teachers commented, ''The event has been a fantastic experience for the children. The lyrics are inspirational and the singing very impressive. Joining together here at St Martin's church has provided the children with the opportunity to meet with others across the Trust as part of this creative journey.''
On 21st January, over 200 pupils from across Bridge Schools Trust performed at St Martin’s Church. It was a magical opportunity for the children to share and celebrate their hard work as well as spread key environmental messages through the medium of song.
“It was really exciting! We felt quite nervous about singing today, but with Matt’s help, we did it! We’ve really enjoyed singing with other Bridge Schools children today,” said a pupil from Polperro Primary.
“The kids were really impressive, very inspirational, and in such a short space of time they worked really hard and should be proud of themselves,” expressed another Teacher.
Chief Executive Adrian Massey commented, “It was lovely to see the children from each of our 14 schools walk forward so confidently to sing their school song to everyone in the church. What an incredible opportunity for them to sing with 200 other Bridge Schools children in such a beautiful setting. We are indebted to Nick Hart for organising the event with Matt Douglas from Cornwall Music Hub.”
Over the coming months, Matt will continue to work to develop the children’s ideas ready for performances by professional choirs at Eden later this year – the perfect setting to disseminate messages from the children about the future of their planet.
