The City of Sunderland Youth Jazz Orchestra (COSYJO) performed at the civic centre in front of an audience consisting of the Mayor, civic leaders, council staff and members of the public. Cosyjo is made up of pupils from several secondary schools across the city, including five learners from Kepier. They are rehearsed and conducted by our Head of Music John Hall, and come into Kepier on Sundays and evenings throughout the year to practice, all of them giving up a great deal of their free time.
On Wednesday and Thursday of this week Mr Lightfoot and Miss Bell took two groups of Year 10 learners to visit The Oriental Museum in Durham as part of their Art coursework and to allow them to view and be inspired by the exhibits on display. All those who went had a fabulous time, as can be seen from the photo! Many thanks to Mr Lightfoot and Miss Bell and to the learners involved for their excellent behaviour whilst on the trip.
