Winvic’s Site Scrap is Another Schools Treasure

Posted on September 27, 2018 in Community engagement

“We loved seeing the children clearly having a wonderful time playing with the instruments, it was a great pleasure to make use of items that would otherwise be scrap and putting them to good use, who knows we might inspire the next Mozart.”

Derren McCrum, Site Manager

The site team at Howdens, Warth Park were able to turn site scrap into musical instruments for the children of Kings Heath Primary Academy, the materials used were recycled and made safe to create instruments for a Sound Garden based in the school’s playground.

The Sound Garden is available to all the children of Kings Heath Primary Academy during breaktimes and lunchtimes and is proving an overwhelming success, Kim Duff school Principle expressed “we have high aspirations for the garden and we hope to expand it during the coming months and hopefully host a Sound Garden performance in the summer term.”

The Sound Garden will enable children to enjoy experimenting with the instruments, making and changing sound, releasing their creative flare whilst enjoying the fresh air. Kim Duff has already noticed that the “combination results in children walking back into their classrooms ready to learn and much more engaged as a result.”
