Nearing the end of the year, we tend to do a little stocktake on how each student had progressed. We were reminded that just as there are children of diverse strengths and abilities, progress and successes also manifests in different ways.
Where perseveration was a challenge, some began to have more intentional music participation; where rigidity interfered with their interactions, we saw inflexibility beginning to thaw; where music examinations were key goals, they achieved satisfactory grades; where socialising and independence were lacking, they lent their musical skills to the festivities of the season on their own.. the list is endless.
We are all organic creatures capable of development. Progress is demonstrated in more ways than one. Take the year end out to celebrate successes and look forward to another year of growth!
