My son is in year 9 of Olchfa and joined the after school RDM course late last year. I had no idea he was interested or even had any aptitude for music at all. My son by nature doesn’t and hasn’t up until this point wanted to get involved in any extra curricula activities within the school. He has enjoyed this course immensely and in a recent GCSE choices meeting I was astounded to hear that he has been advised to take music as one of his subjects and that the work undertaken on this course can count towards his final mark. I feel that attending this course has not only given him a new skill set but has also boosted his self-confidence and assisted in him forming new friendships.
