Hello all, this is Samairah, Tashanne and Bryanna, from Ralph Thoresby School.
We have been fortunate enough, to have been given the opportunity to do work experience with the Geraldine Connor Foundation. We wanted to come to the Foundation because between us, we are interested in Drama, Project management and Wardrobe.
Our first task on Monday morning was to organise the Carnival resource packs, the resource pack was created by Ayo Jones and Rhian Kempadoo-Millar.
The packs will be used to help primary schools around the city to teach their pupils about the history of Carnival. Inside the packs include creative ideas to intrigue and inspire the young people.
Our favourite section was the Ingredients to make a Carnival, which includes:
- 1 imaginative idea or story
- 5 x 15ml spoon of feathers and sequins
- 100g of Soca music
- 100g of steel pan music
- 1000 drops of energetic people
This section of the pack is very creative and colourful, which will be interesting for the school pupils provoking their imagination.
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Leeds West Indian Carnival the Geraldine Connor Foundation is donating a Carnival Pack to over 100 Primary Schools around Leeds.
The packs will be distributed to schools via Artemis, the art loaning service for children and young people.
