Community Education – Every Kid Can

 

Mission: To impart discipline, cooperation and respect through Suzuki violin instruction.

 

Teaching Suzuki Violin to every student at Victor Scott Primary and Preschool focuses on discipline, respect and cooperation. In 2015, we began to enter students into the RCM Prep exam and, to date, every student who has taken the exam has passed. This proves that students can achieve success when given an opportunity. In September of 2016 we added every P1 and P2 at Purvis Primary to the programme.
