Crocus Music Meeting

crocus2Pupils at Sibford School will be marking the end of term by holding a special Music Meeting in aid of the End Polio Now campaign.

For the past two years, Sibford has joined with other local schools to take part in the Crocus Concerts, arranged by the Rotary Club of Banbury in aid of the campaign.

However, this year the concerts were unable to go ahead due to one of the organisers having to undergo a major operation … and so Sibford decided to hold its own event.

Fiona Hudson, head of music at Sibford said: “Over the years our young musicians have really enjoyed these concerts; sharing our music making with other schools and all for such a good cause.

“We hold regular music meetings here at Sibford to showcase the talents of our pupils and decided that it would be appropriate to hold a special ‘Crocus Meeting’ before we break up for Easter.”

The school is hoping that parents and friends will join them for the Crocus Meeting which will take place on Thursday 24 March starting at 3.40pm. Attendance is free but there will be a collection to raise money for the campaign. The school will also be selling special Crocus Pins.

Ron Barnett of the Rotary Club of Banbury said: “The Rotary International project to rid the world of polio is on the cusp of achieving its goal, but this would not be possible if we did not have the support and enthusiasm of local schools and community groups.”

  • The crocus was chosen as the symbol of the End Polio Now campaign because it matches the dye painted on the fingers of children who have been immunised against the disease.
