National Recognition for Hill House Music
We were thrilled to hear this week that Head of Practical Music, Mrs Vicky Bodman, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Classic FM Music Teacher of the Year Awards.
Mrs Bodman has been shortlisted for the national award due to her work on behalf of the annual Robin Hood Music and Drama Festival, which enters its 13th year this coming Spring, when it will again be hosted at Hill House.
Headmaster David Holland said ‘it is tremendous to see Mrs Bodman recognised in this way. Her work for the festival brings together thousands of local young musicians and actors each year. They can perform in a friendly, supportive environment, coming from a huge variety of schools and backgrounds, including in a very popular end of festival concert and a day for music making for children with Special Educational Needs. The festival is a key part of the Doncaster music scene. We are very proud of her.’
Mrs Bodman is one of a shortlist of 5 for the national Best Music Learning Initiative Award, which will be decided by a public vote. For those who would like to support Mrs Bodman and Doncaster music, please see the link here to the voting process, which is open until Friday 15 September.
