12th June, 2020

CANCELLED: Following Government advice to close all schools the hard decision was made to cancel the Make It Happen event due to take place on 12 June.

Local group of volunteers have teamed up to create a performing arts competition event for local primary and secondary schools from Aberdeenshire.

Earlier this year a popular schools performing arts event was cancelled shortly after the schools had signed up and began to create their performances for the competition. Many people were shocked and disappointed by the sudden news and so a group of locals banded together to see if they could do something about it, the result was a vow to Make It Happen.

The committee of local volunteers involves representatives of different schools who have been involved in the initiative for many years and their professions span across education, health and wellbeing, styling and performing arts administration. This group has taken on the task of planning a performing arts competition for the local Aberdeenshire schools in addition to their full-time jobs.

After assessing the feasibility of the event, the committee is proud to announce that 12 schools have signed up for the performing arts spectacular which is to be held in the new P&J Live at TECA on the 12 June 2020. The day will involve educational workshops from NHS Grampian Public Health, Police Scotland, Aberdeenshire Council’s Tackling Poverty and Inequality team, and a drug and alcohol awareness workshop from Public Health. The day will consist of each school rehearsing on stage, learning about performing in a professional venue, designing lighting, directing video and much more, as well as lots of fun and making friends with the other schools.
