Yesterday’ss RSL course was absolutely outstanding. The school was awe inspiring and just walking round the corridors gave me some excellent ideas to implement at my own school. With regards to the RSL aspect of the course, I now have a strong understanding on how to run it and know how my assignment briefs should look etc. etc.
Fantastic news today for Musical Futures Australia – they’ve now had all funding confirmed, and the rollout of MF has been written into government papers.
In a budget statement, Australian Education Minister James Merlino said “Music should be part of a modern curriculum, and the Budget provides $2 million to establish quality music programs in all government schools and help students buy musical instruments”. He has previously said “Exposure to music education means better grades, better results and better attendance, it’s a proven link.”
Big congratulations to MF Oz from everyone in MF UK!
