Cambodia Club Recorder Drive

Bravo to our Orchard students for a beautiful concert! Now that our performance has ended, we are looking to bring the joy of music to our sister school in Cambodia.  Unfortunately, these students do not have the same opportunities so we would like to recycle any unwanted recorders and send them to Cambodia! If you are interested, please send your recorder to school.  We will have a collection box near the front entrance. Many thanks to all who are able to donate their instrument.
