schneller school was always famous for its brass bands. sadly during the
years this tradition was lost. music in schneller is not only important
for its cultural value, but it is also extremely valuable as one of the
extracurricular activities that make life for our students more
enjoyable. it allows them to use their free time constructively, and it
teaches them discipline. the director of jlss has been trying to restore
the schneller music tradition. for this purpose he has been appealing
for help from our partners. dr. basil rischmaui who is a jlss alumnus
and a member of the evs board in germany decided to do something about
it as he himself remembers, and highly appreciates, the music tradition
of schneller schools. he appealed to schneller friends in germany who
had brass instruments that they did not use anymore to send them to him.
he collected eleven instruments and sent them to our school. they arrived on
saturday may 1st
2010. we will now look for a music teacher, either
locally or through our partners, to come to jlss to teach our students to
play those instruments. we express our sincere gratitude to dr.
rischmaui and all the schneller friends who supported this wonderful
project. we hope those instruments will be making beautiful music soon,
and transforming the lives of our students.
