Welwyn Garden City pupils’ voyage of discovery
A SCHOOL focused on two of the subjects that most inspire its children – the arts and the world around them – for a week of discovery.
During Arts Week 2012 at WGC’s Applecroft School, children picked countries and studied indigenous arts in many forms – from Marcel Marceau-inspired mime and ancient Greek theatre to Japanese hanging fish and Brazilian festivals.
One year group from the Applecroft Road school, holder of an International School Award, spent a day behind the scenes at the Barn Theatre, in WGC.
Another put on a mime workshop for visiting parents.
Ellen Tuck, the school’s creative faculty leader, said: “The week was a way to immerse children in our creative curriculum and give them time to let their artistic abilities shine.”

The Arts Week theme, United in Diversity, was an example of this.
