Runcorn State School - P&CNew Music Equipment
At Runcorn State School, we firmly believe that the Arts plays a very important role in child development. Artistic games and activities actually help children learn other subjects as well. Further, it helps to encourage visual, motor and social development. Using art as a vehicle for expression is enriching because children can use it as a communication tool for their feelings and emotions. For this grant we would like to invest in our music department. Music ignites all areas of child development, including intellectual, social-emotional, language, and overall literacy. It encourages the mind and body to work together. With the money from this grant, we would be able to purchase new musical instruments and equipment to help further integrate the joy of various avenues of music into the Runcorn Curriculum.
