A group of Year 7 music students marked Dementia Awareness Week by joining care home residents in a drumming workshop.
The six students went to Manor Court
care home in Plymouth on 22 May 2014 to take part in the hour-long music
session led by Lorna Coulson, a dementia consultant, who
specifically invited students from the College to join the workshop.
"The session related to the honouring
of the elders through rhythm and song," explained music teacher Mr
"All of the children were very involved in the
session and played on numerous drums, including a large drum called Spirit Of
The Sound made from British Buffalo.
"All of the students represented the College
fantastically and engaged with the residents throughout the session."
