from w. On Friday morning some of us from East Geelong Uniting went to Whittington Primary School for their assembly at which the string music students performed many items. Over the past two years they have been learning mainly the violin and cello - about 25 of them - thanks to gifts and grants organised by our minister Rev IKani from our church. The intention is to provide an opportunity for students who live in a suburb which has several disadvantages to to something really creative such as learning stringed instruments and playing together. It was a lovely morning and then we had a cuppa with the Principal and music teachers who come in on Friday mornings to teach.
