A Very International Visit
Posted on 11th December 2018 at 13:40
This was a special week. St Johns International school came to visit Ingestre Hall all the way from Belgium. Being an international school there was huge variety and cultural richness within this group. This was a unique opportunity for children from all over the world to use Ingestre Hall as their hub for creativity and expression.
Being a slightly smaller group than usual St Johns participated in Drama, Art and Dance respectively, rotating workshops half way through the week. We had the story of Jack Frost in Drama with some of the students taking their roles as beltching goblins very literally. In Art we had clay sculpting and even a facemask being made of one of the visiting members of staff. In Dance we had two gymnastic and very explosive performances that left the audience gob smacked by what they had seen!
The talent within this group was outstanding ,although not here for the whole week there was a brilliant quality and quantity to the work that was made. We also had some arcade games fans that spent their free time playing Pac-man, desperately trying to beat our in house high score.... which they did!
Being ALMOST Christmas, our wonderful cooks made a Christmas dinner for the group. This inspired our staff to put on our Christmas hats and have a good sing along with the group to some classic Christmas tunes.
