A songwriting challenge for pupils attending Doncaster Special Schools

Join us for Moony’s songwriting challenge, created especially for pupils attending Doncaster’s special schools!

Link to Darts Webpage

Moony, our musician, is a favourite amongst pupils attending our All Aboard after schools clubs and family sessions. Moony has been a little bored, and he’s stuck for ideas of what to do in lockdown! He wanted to create a bespoke song to cheer us up and get us thinking about what we can do if we too get bored.

Above you will find his video challenge ‘What shall I do today?’

He needs your help and lots of your ideas of what to do today to help him finish the song!

Watch his video, suggest your ideas in the comments box or email them to sregan@thepoint.org.uk.

Watch out for your ideas, as Moony gives them a try and sings them back to you in his next video!

Due to the current coronavirus advice, The Point is currently closed to the public and all face to face activity is postponed. darts staff are continuing to work from home to develop our work and find new ways for our participants to get involved in creative activity. We are also supporting our brilliant artist and freelance artist team to create activity for all of our groups as well as a wider public audience.


We wish you all well during this strange and uncertain time and look forward to seeing you again soon. In the meantime, we remain committed to using the arts and creativity to improve life, learning and health and finding new ways to connect with you all.
