Community Service at the Fulbrook Centre

Sixth formers spread the gift of music at a special event at a palliative and rehabilitation centre in Oxford.

On Wednesday 13th October, nine Headington students, accompanied by Mr Tom Anderson performed a superb selection of live music to the staff and residents of the Fulbrook Centre on the Churchill Hospital site.

As part of their Sixth Form Community Service, the girls sung both together and individually but also played their instruments to the patients and staff, who were delighted by the performances. The music ranged from classical violin and sax solos to folk and rap songs, with the patients happily joining in at times with the group choir, with songs by The Beatles, Bob Dylan and more.

Mr Tom Anderson said: “The patients and staff were extremely welcoming and grateful, and the Headington girls were a real credit to the school. This was the first Sixth Form Community Service performance of its kind, and we would love to return to the Fulbrook Centre again. We also hope to expand over the coming year with performances to other areas of the local community too.”
