Residential Fellowship Programme 2016

This programme held from 29th - 31st Jan 2016 was hosted by The British School of Colombo (BSC) specially for the children of the Music Project. An innitiative designed to cross boundaries, to enocourage fellowship among each other and to learn to respect each other inspite of diverse backgrounds. Who would have thought that some rural kids would be so musically talented and could teach classical music to urban kids? and who would have thought that some rural kids would be compassionate enough to want to share their time to show the music project children how to swim in the pool, teach them how to use paint on the computer and play new fun games? Well thats exactly what happened at the Residential Fellowship Programme 2016!
The first day of the programme was conducted by The Music Project children. Where they conducted three activities. 1. a special performance - introducing what an orchestra is about 2. teaching two songs on the recorder (a tamil and sinhala song) 3. "Making a musical instrument".
The 2nd day of the programme was conducted by The British School children.
where they conducted 4 activities - 1. learn how to be confident in the water & have fun 2. an IT experience -with Paint 3. fun team building games 4. fun sports activities

Our Testimonials
 
Volunteering with the Music Project in Kurunegala has been a very worthwhile and enjoyable experience. During my time with the Project I have taught English in the mornings at a local school called Lakdasa College.

Then in the afternoons I travelled to several different schools with the Music Project itself to teach English, trumpet and recorder. The children are all very eager to learn which makes them a pleasure to teach.
