About The RoKzKool Academy Charity
An innovative musical project
The RoKzKool Academy Scottish Charity, has been operating in and around the Highlands for over 5 years, gaining charitable status in July 2019.
We now have our Charitable Status, RoKzKool Academy (SCIO) We run workshops during term time working in partnership with Schools and Communities. We also offer week long courses during school holidays with emphasis very much on music sport and fun. We have facilitated Events and Galas, with us now being offered a 2nd year at Belladrum! Our Students are amazing!
All our Students work towards building skills, incorporating recognised awards, such as Hi5, Saltire, Youth Awards and DofE.
Our aim is to build confidence, self esteem, resilience and social skills we provide a platform for our students to develop skills and knowledge to perform not only on stage but into the world of work.
Health and well-being is encouraged, as is parent participation, with a student led approach, allowing students to become a main part of every project we deliver. We have guest speakers from our partner organisations and companies offering opportunities to Rokzkool Academy through residential retreats and local activities run by organisations such as The Rotary Clubs, local Youth Development Teams such as Clachnacudden FC, along with sponsors such as C0-op, Asda, Tesco, Albyn Housing Association, Cairn Housing Association and the Tulloch Group. We also work together with Youth Highland, Signpost, Highland Children’s Forum, SNAP, NAS, and the NHS to allow us to work together for the benefit of the Community.
We enhance musical skill through a variety of activities. We believe that everybody has some kind of musical ability but some of us just need encouragement, confidence and direction to find it. All of our workshops will offer a series of activities devoted to the musical emotional and social development of children. The facilities are designed to entertain, exercise and stimulate children while reinforcing good social skills in a group musical environment.
Fostering a commitment to young people
Our goal is to foster a commitment to young people that will promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills and reassert a sense of hope in the future. Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be established that will give children the commitment to follow through on the path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
To achieve this young people will be in a caring, inclusive learning environment that promotes their best effort and enforce personal respect. Over time, Rokzkool will create a learning environment that will be an invaluable resource to young people, aspiring mentors and the communities at large.
