Last summer, THF supported a building project at Our Lady and St Patrick’s Primary School in Teignmouth. Build in the corner of the small playground, a wooden amphitheatre has provided a superb focus for children’s activities of all kinds both at playtime and during lessons. Children’s imaginations turn it from a pirate ship to a stage set in the wink of an eye!
During their recent Arts Week, OLSP engaged the whole school in a brilliant range of arts activities including story-telling, dance, drama, music, painting and sculpture. One particular activity, funded by THF, engaged every child in making an individually painted bamboo “bead” to decorate the rear of the amphitheatre and the result was outstanding.
