Bringing young people closer to the arts
Community Sponsors funded a five week initiative that linked the Roundhouse Theatre with Creative Arts and Drama staff from Kingsford School in Newham, London via workshops culminating in a fantastic performance of music and movement focusing on collaboration.
The School voted for a piece of poetry, written by Kingsford Students to use as a background for the performance. The poem offered a powerful message of conflict and the need for people to come together to overcome hardship through cohesion. The project helped to:
– Boost morale, offer enrichment and support ahievement in line with Every Child Matters objectives;
– Offered a valuable link to the curriculum with room for expansion of the project during term time
– Used performances to bring together the whole school, parents, carers and the local community
– Supported school specialism and focus
