First Global Bank yesterday launched its ‘Perfect Pitch for a Sound Education’ music programme at the Tavares Gardens Primary School. At the launch the school was presented musical instruments for their music programme.
This initiative is focused on using music and musical concepts to teach literacy and numeracy to students in grades 3 and 4. In partnership with the Ministry of Education, First Global Bank unveiled this programme in 2011 in six primary schools across Jamaica. Since then, the programme has impacted over 10,300 students with all participants achieving an increase of at least one grade level in their reading and numeracy levels. There are currently fifteen schools participating in this initiative.
