Roseland Festival 2016 Fund Art Transition Project

1507_roseland_festival_2016.jpgWe are delighted to announce that we have been granted nearly £1000 by the Roseland Festival to fund a new and exciting Art project for The Roseland Community College and partner primaries, due to take place next academic year 2015/16.

While some of the finer details have yet to be finalised, we envisage working with all nine partner primaries in a series of art workshops leading to a public exhibition of the resulting pieces of work in Spring 2016. The theme is "A Sense of Place" to celebrate our beautiful natural surroundings and Cornish heritage. In practical terms we aim to collaborate with a local artist, who will be the lead practitioner for the project, and we also plan to send specialist Roseland staff and some of our secondary students into individual primary schools to work alongside primary staff and pupils.

We are very grateful to our generous sponsors and thrilled that the project will form part of the wider Roseland Festival programme of events which will take place between 23rd April and 7th May 2016, further details to be released soon - watch this space!

Samba de Roselando at Mevagissey Feast Week
Feast WeekOur college samba band, Samba de Roselando, gave another fantastic performance in the Mevagissey Fish Parade on Sunday 28th June at the start of this year's Feast Week celebrations! This year our drummers were joined by a lively team of Year 8 samba dancers led by Music Teacher Bethany Wade. Roseland staff and students entertained the crowd in style as the harbour town was filled with the sound of Brazilian drums and our dancers' colourful streamers - well done to all those who took part and made the day such a great occasion
Kakatsitsi Return to The Roseland for World Culture Day 2015

KakatsitsiOn Wednesday 1st July Roseland students enjoyed a multicultural assembly and programme of music and dance workshops to celebrate our World Culture Day.  As part of their tour of the South West, internationally acclaimed Ghanaian drummers "Kakatsitsi" gave a fantastic performance in a special afternoon assembly followed by African drumming and dance workshops for members of our college samba band, samba dancers and Irish dancing club.  

There was even time for a cultural exchange at the end of the day when our Irish dancers decided to give an impromptu performance to our Ghanaian guests! Students from various year groups also enjoyed a series of 'Bharatanatayam' style Indian dance workshops within timetabled dance lessons, delivered by visiting dance practitioner Kay Crook from Chhaya Collective. Tutor groups also took part in a multicultural quiz and many lessons were linked to the international theme. Our World Culture Day marks a new annual event promoting internationalism across the whole school, designed to raise awareness of global culture in a positive, exciting way! 

Roseland Youth Orchestra Celebrate BBC Ten Pieces at Hubbub Festival!
RYO Performance at Heartlands June 26th 2015.jpgOn Friday 26th June our newly formed Roseland Youth Orchestra gave a fantastic debut performance at the "Hubbub" Festival at Heartlands in Pool, as part of a two day event organised by Cornwall Music Education Hub for schools and the wider community. The orchestral theme was inspired by the BBC Ten Pieces programme for schools, an initiative designed to make orchestral music more accessible to young musicians, and members of our orchestra enjoyed the chance to collaborate with the highly acclaimed Cornwall Youth Orchestra in an inspiring workshop led by CYO Director, Tim Boulton. The workshop culminated in a superb joint performance of one of the BBC Ten Pieces, the epic "Mars" from The Planets Suite by Holst. Our students really enjoyed working alongside members of CYO, an audition only county ensemble which also includes several Roseland students, and together they made an amazing sound! Following the workshop, Roseland Youth Orchestra went on to entertain the audience with two pieces of their own, performing Grieg's "Hall of the Mountain King" and a medley of contemporary songs arranged by their own Musical Director Matt Douglas, entitled "Roseland Mash". It was a truly aspirational day and we look forward to future performances by the Roseland Youth Orchestra!

Year 10 flautist Alice Musgrove said,

"It was inspirational and exhilarating to hear so many young people of different abilities playing together"

Roseland Youth Orchestra was formed in February 2015, funded by our generous sponsor EMI Music Foundation, and includes young musicians from The Roseland and our partner primary schools. New members are always welcome - please contact Expressive Arts Development Officer Wendy Polley for further details.
