Jean met Baljit, who will be taking up a placement at Aquinoe in 2020, in London.
Baljit is in the process of doing a PhD at the University of Sussex and has exciting plans for for Aquinoe.
She will be going to the school for three months.
Part of her plan states the following:
“The structure of this project would involve 3 groups of children aged between 8-13 years old. The groups of children will make a joint decision as to whether they would like to:
- Construct a song using various materials/resources and instruments available to them
- Perform a dance to the music that group 1 have created
- Write lyrics to the music that group 1 have created.
The overarching aim would be to put on a final set of performances in the final month of the placement to the school and/or the community depending on the capacity of the audience and the venue required to cater for this.”
What an exciting prospect!
