An 11-16 Academy
On Monday 18th July The Tailormade band came into Stradbroke High School to play to the students and deliver a drugs and alcohol awareness talk. Matt, Aaron and Jack played to Year 9 before break and Years 7 and 8 after break. They have supported many well known bands and they are very much an 'up and coming' band themselves. They played some cover songs and some of their own new material in between which they talked to the students about being sensible, thinking of the reasons why people might get addicted and the consequences that can arise. They had many of their own anecdotes to share which made their message more relevant.
Our students really enjoyed meeting them and listening to their music. They liked how the lads broke up their songs with the information and were nice and down to earth. They said that "They put across their message without being patronising" (Susie Murray year 9). "They were very good and spoke in a way we understood" (Jayjay Fenwick Year 9). "We liked how they put their own stories into it and made it meaningful" (Emily Bullock Year 9).
We would definitely recommend them and would happily invite them back another time!
