We need your help!

The Music House for Children is fundraising for a new carpet throughout the school. A local firm will put colourful, hardwearing carpet tiles in every room, create a sparkling new reception floor and brighten the long corridor – all for £1,700 inclusive.

Can you help? A fun-walk, play, run, concert or cake making scheme would be an incredible support, as would a singathon, smileathon or even a drawathon.

Every penny you have in change would be amazing.

We will also be going to the Chiswick Carboot sale on 4th June.  We are asking all families, teachers and friends to donate items such as books, toys, clothes, jewellery and household items.

Great feedback 

Wednesday 5th April 2017

On Tuesday 4th April we our lovely Early Years teacher Val ran our workshop Hum and the Elephant for Addison Community Champions. It’s always great to receive positive feedback…

“Val was amazing! Adults were very impressed and children appeared to be having a great time – the ‘squeak-tometer’ was at full blast but there were also some lovely moments of quieter engagement  She has a remarkable range of entertainment skills. But what I noticed, in particular, was her ability to suss out and very quickly turn-around non-engaging or hyper-active kids – without missing a beat! Thank you for bringing her to us.”
