Remembering the Armistice.

Fri 13 November 2020


Ashlands Primary School Ilkley, chose  this year, to remember those sectors of society who have served us during the Covid 19 pandemic as well as those that have lost their lives in times of conflict . To mark the official time and date of the annual Armistice Remembrance, pupils Milena and Nell, both aged 8, chose to perform the ‘Last Post’
The two cornet players had rehearsed  their choice of music with their music teacher and brass tutor, Helen Varley.

Helen who is also a member of Grimethorpe Band, explained “It’s been an interesting year for all peripatetic teachers, and often very challenging working around the teaching restrictions.

Bradford Music & Arts Service have been striving to keep as much as possible going, and we managed to move a large amount of teaching online during the first lockdown.

Nell and Milena came up with their own idea to do a performance of the Last Post, and they were just bursting with pride to represent their school.

Carl White, the new acting Head of Service at Bradford, added: “Bradford Music and Arts Service has been working hard to support schools and pupils through the pandemic, and it’s wonderful to see that the pupils of Bradford are still thriving from the musical opportunities in the area.”
