The new Taiko drumming group had a vision of how using these different drums a new and shared tradition might be forged. They saw how working together as a Taiko drumming team could break down barriers, change perspectives and forge long-lasting friendships.
Six children from each school came together in February and started on a journey which has culminated in performances at both the Waterside Theatre and at the Claudy festival to date.
Fiona hopes the group will now go from strength to strength as they have enjoyed their drumming experience so much.
The name of the brand new taiko team was chosen carefully to encapsulate the ethos and the hopes behind this project - friendship.
