Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

SCORES of pupils at Ash­ford’s High­worth Girls Gram­mar School have been im­prov­ing their mu­si­cal skills in a char­ity chal­lenge. More than 100 of them joined in the prac­tice-a-thon ses­sions – launched at the school last week – which enourage them to play in­stru­ments and sing. They are fol­low­ing the ad­vice of ac­claimed clas­si­cal vi­o­lin­ist and for­mer young mu­si­cian of the year, Ni­cola Benedetti, in prac­tis­ing more of­ten in a bid to im­prove their mu­si­cal skills. They have signed up to take part in Prac­tice-a-thon Mu­sic, the na­tional fund-rais­ing ini­tia­tive run by the UK’s largest chil­dren’s can­cer char­ity, CLIC Sar­gent, in which stu­dents are spon­sored to play their in­stru­ments or prac­tise singing. Mrs Julie Moore, High­worth head of mu­sic, said: “We are de­lighted to be sup­port­ing Prac­tice-a-thon Mu­sic. “The stu­dents have re­ally got be­hind the idea and are very en­thused about prac­tis­ing their in­stru­ments or singing.”
