Tollgate would like to invite all parents and carers to our celebration in honour of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. The event will take place on Friday 17th June from 12:00pm to 2:30pm. Children are encouraged to wear blue, red and white on the day. We look forward to welcoming you all.
This 10-week course is aimed at parents of children aged 5 and over with an Autism Diagnosis or awaiting one. The course helps parents learn practical communication skills for everyday life. Please speak with the Family Support Officers should you require any further information.
This week, the Tollgate Orchestra and a small group of children from the resource provision performed alongside the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE) at one of London’s most esteemed performance venues, the Conway Hall. The OAE are a British period instrument orchestra and are the resident ensemble at the Southbank Centre.
OAE instrumentalists have been working collaboratively with the Tollgate Orchestra and children from the provision throughout the Spring Term. The workshops have been of an exceptional quality, with creative ensemble music making and student led learning at its centre. The workshops culminated in this high profile performance with the students performing music from Henry Purcell’s opera, ‘King Arthur’.
The performance was truly sensational and it was so wonderful to see the children utterly immersed and engaged in active music making alongside their professional counterparts. It really was an evening to treasure and we were delighted to welcome the children’s friends and family to the Conway Hall to experience the performance as well as to soak up the atmosphere alongside all the children and staff.
It is day two at Fairplay House and despite the wet morning, children are in high spirits and enjoying the morning activities. Here are some pictures received.
