The Whittington Strings is a project initiated by our East church to assist a group of boys and girls to learn to play the violin, cello and double bass. Whittington Primary School is in a suburb where there is a lot of disadvantage and it's a super project to upskill children and give them confidence. Two boys have even joined a community strings group. Today our church council members visited the school and saw the music practice session and then two lads played for us in the staff room where we had our Council meeting and lunch. Great. I took a few photos including a couple of large paintings in the corridor.
