Thanks to a grant from Canada Post Community Foundation for Children, and money from the Town of St. Andrews’ Albert McQuoid Fund, the St. Andrews Arts Council was able to purchase fifteen xylophones for the St. Andrews Arts Council’s FREE Music in the Schools Program at Vincent Massey Elementary School.
The xylophones were delivered during a kindergarten/grade 1 music class and the children were so excited. Music teacher Stephanie Archer showed the kids all about how to use the instruments and they each had a chance to test them out.
The xylophones will be used by all grades at VMES.
