The principals of both schools reportedly requested the instruments to create a well-rounded school experience for students.

A smooth handover was facilitated by the Ministry of Education through the Multicultural Music Programme Unit (MMPU). Roland ‘Moose’ Joseph, an instructor of the MMPU, blended the ensembles.

Meanwhile, music Instructors from the MMPU will be working with both schools on a weekly basis to teach and guide students in the use of the instruments.
